SOCIAL SECURITY UNDER ATTACK

https://www.cnbc.com/2018/04/26/social-security-is-under-attack-say-these-congressional-democrats.ht...

 

What will the Republican leadership do to make up for the almost 2 TRILLION lost in Tax Revenue from their latest Tax Cuts. Those Tax Cuts Mostly helped Corporations and the Wealthy ? What will those same Republican's do for our struggling Senior's and Disabled ?

First of all, the fear is unfounded. You will notice that the article said:

       Cuts to Social Security would mean more seniors in poverty, a new report  finds.

  • Some Democrats worry that the recent tax cuts will be used by Republicans to reduce other programs.
  • And certain demographics, like women and people of color, could be hurt even more.

There are no cuts to SS and the article supposes that Republicans will cut SS (which won't happen).

 

The income tax cut had no bearing on SS "income" since SS "income" is based on gross salary. Don't forget that many seniors who VOTE, receive SS and will steer that prediction another direction!

 

Don't worry Mandm
