You don't get to lie, put words in Trump's mouth he didn't say and then pretend like it doesn't matter that you lied.
So you still won't admit trump lied on healthcare and tax reform, but somehow I'm supposed to believe that he won't go along with the GOP to cut Medicare and ss, even though he has proven himself to be nothing more than a GOP puppet so far.

Got it

Oooops, Was the link posted to much of a shock for some ? https://www.ssa.gov õ history õ 35act

Social Security was not for financially well people to have, to take an annual vacation or save for a couple years to buy a new car with etc. (as many think or use as)

Social Security should be cut back to it's original purpose. Then there would be no SS crisis.

It was never intended as personal Insurance you get a portion back at a certain age for extra $. (as most think)

It was put into effect as a Social Insurance Program to try to keep the destitute, old, disabled etc. off the streets.

Which is where our issue/problem with the homeless is now.

It was Gomer Bush who failed to read or ignored his President`s Daily Briefing of Aug. 6 2001 warning that Bin Laden was determined to strike in U.S. It was Bill Clinton`s fault?

Let's also cut it back to all it's original limits.

Lol.

911 was planned for, trained for and financed during Clinton.

What was Bush supposed to do. Remember how liberals went ape **** when Trump wanted to restrict travel of Muslims from countries with terrorism issues?

What a disgrace. Never any money for a decent public safety net for seniors, the disabled, the sick and the poor, but always money for tax breaks, military spending and more prisons.
Nobody told companies to dump pensions and switch to 401Ks which are totally useless. Thatís a major reason for issues with seniors. I literally havenít adjusted or looked at my 401K in 7 years and Iím 38. The reason is that my inheritance which will be a measly 2-3 mill in all likelihood by 55 when I retire is gonna be more than I can ever get in my 401K anyway

About as happy as the only permanent tax cuts going to corporations probably, and the trillion dollar annual deficits for the next decade to pay for them
