The Republicans are the only people being honest about SS. Democrats keep saying "Oh, don't worry about it. Everything is under control." Currently, we are paying more money out to SS recipients than we are taking in, and this slow economy for the next four years will not help much.<quoted text> here's a better question that answers that. Are they going to stop collecting the money through pay roll taxes? NO! Will those taxes increase for all work ing americans? YES!
Democrats lie and republicans scare people? With what the truth about what's going on with ssi? That's rich.maybe rick perry...
As much as l love the extra money, there should have never been a SS reduction in the first place. It's DumBama's way of looking good even though he is just making the problem worse for representatives in the future. Now according to many in the MSM, it's all the Republicans fault. They are more than happy to print how much it cost us when we reduce taxes for the wealthy, but never how much DumBama robbed SS by reducing deductions.
I say we pay for SS and in fact, even increase the contributions. I say we should double our contributions to Medicare as well. If people want these programs, let them pay for them. Why didn't our politicians come up with that solution? Because if we funded these programs properly, it would cause many to side with moving those programs out of government and into the private sector. Democrats will have none of that. So they lie to us and lie to us and say everything is just fine. Don't worry about it. We'll tax the rich or borrow more money.
