   That is certainly in line with the GOP plan for senior genocide.    As a reminder:  Social Security is based on previous 5 years payments into the system.   That would mean that payments to anyone who is retiring soon would get skrewed - 8 months of "savings" by corportations as well.

Trump Floats Insidious Plan Loot Social Security & Medicare to Shore Up His Own Sagging

Trump Floats Insidious Plan to Loot Social Security and Medicare to Shore Up His Own Sagging Political Fortunes; Cutting Social Security Payroll Tax (FICA) Until End of 2020 Would Accelerate Insolvency of Social Safety Net, Triggering Crisis Before 2026 for Medicare and Before 2035 for Social Security; Currently, FICA Takes 6.2% of Total Pay for Social Security and 1.45% for Medicare, Plus 0.9% Medicare Surtax for Incomes over $200,000; Employers’ Share of FICA Is 6.2% Of Pay and 1.45% for Medicare
Pelosi, Schumer, Biden, and All Democratic Leaders Must Immediately Condemn and Repudiate Any Tampering with Payroll Tax; Any Consideration of Payroll Tax Cut Will Bring the Foul Stench of Austerity Upon the Party, Redounding Only to Trump’s Benefit!
Instead, Congress Must and Implement a $55 Trigger Price Tariff on Oil to Protect Domestic Producers; Nation Needs a Modern Equivalent of the 1934 Frazier-Lemke Farm Bankruptcy Act to Secure a Debt Moratorium and Halt Foreclosures and Repossessions for Farms and Productive Businesses for the Duration of This Emergency.
