The Party of Scrooge – History of American Politics

WE CANNOT TRUST REPUBLICANS ON Social Security PERIOD.


They want to Privatize and destroy Social Security no matter what they claim in the Media which they own and use against the people of this Country. Over and over they have shown you cannot Trust Republicans.

THIS IS A MUST READ ARTICLE:

Social Security Benefits Are Modest

Policymakers Have Limited Room to Reduce Benefits Without Causing Hardship

Social Security’s financial challenge is real but is manageable in size. The program’s trustees project that it is solvent until 2033, and that even after that, tax revenue anticipated under current law would support three-fourths of scheduled benefits.

In the mid-2030s, when the large baby boom generation exerts its greatest demographic pressure, benefits will cost just over 6 percent of Gross Domestic Product (GDP), up from 4.9 percent today.

There is no imminent crisis, and policymakers have time to do the job right, although it’s desirable to act sooner rather than later.

The major reason for acting soon is that a carefully crafted solvency package could strengthen public confidence in the program, share sacrifices fairly across generations, and give workers plenty of notice so that they can plan their work, saving, and retirement.
