The Gutting Of Social Security

This one government program is one that many Americans use along with Medicare…..and yet almost every Congress has a plan to reform the program and in the process gut what little benefits American retirees actually get.

The GOP NEVER stops trying to destroy the program and will go to extreme lengths to do so.

Has anyone ever noticed the GOP with its extreme spending always looks to social security in the fight for a balanced budget and the fight against the rising deficit?

And they are at it again because of Covid-19…..they want to gut the program just a little more…..

A proposal by Sen. Mitt Romney to establish congressional committees with the specific goal of crafting legislative “solutions” for America’s federal trust fund programs has reportedly resurfaced in GOP talks over the next Covid-19 stimulus package, sparking alarm among progressive advocates who warn the Utah Republican’s bill is nothing but a stealth attack on Social Security and Medicare.

Politico‘s Burgess Everett reported Wednesday that Romney’s TRUST Act, first introduced last October with the backing of a bipartisan group of senators, “is getting a positive reception from Senate Republicans” in coronavirus relief discussions, which are still in their early stages. The legislation, Everett noted, “could become part of the mix” for the next Covid-19 stimulus as Republicans once again claim to be concerned about the growing budget deficit.

It amazes me that the toothless old farts that depend on SS for their retirement would keep voting these slugs in the GOP into office….and almost every time they lose a little more out of the their retirement.

I have now decided that these fools deserve the f*ckings they get from the GOP…..because they are beyond ignorant that they will vote against their best interests.

So bend over seniors and drop those drawers and enjoy the ride.

Since you are too slow to learn stuff…..you deserve every f*cking you get from the GOP.

  1. During the lockdown, our government used the diversion to remove free school meals for families on benefits, and turned down a nurses’ pay rise. Once we go back to anything like normal, they will hit us hard!
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. This reminds me of this good article I read in the Guardian I read a few months back. It talks about the myths of social security not being able to be paid out for future generations. It could still be saved if the right actions were taken. The article talked about the importance of electing someone who would take the steps to protect it. Unfortunately that last part didn’t happen.
