Any help chopchop0?
?????

You think trump is actually going to admit any of that on record?

He'd rather lie and promise things like universal healthcare: https://youtu.be/XQFItVBKlAU

In other words, the funding ends on the person’s retirement. As the Greatest Generation, and a few straggler years younger, dies off so will much of the pension liability, no other generation will retire in as sweet of a position as they have. Additionally, starting with mid-to-late baby boomers people will have paid more into Social Security than they will withdraw.

Are you suggesting that we get rid of military pensions and disabled veteran’s pensions? My husband’s body was maimed serving this nation and now you want to renege on the contract the government signed with him after he has fulfilled his end of the bargain? How nice.
I’m a federal employee and cannot “double dip”. I don’t know about city and county employees. My organization is quasi-government and not supported through taxes, unless you consider postage a tax.

I started working at a young age and have had many second jobs. I have all of my SS quarters. I will get far, far less than what I would be eligible for if I didn’t have a Fed job.

People crack me up. They wouldn’t be caught dead doing my job (physically demanding, blue collar, no social status) yet they gripe about my pension. I worked for it. You’ve could’ve done it too, but you pulled your nose up at it. That was your call. Now you’re bitter and want it taken away?

These types of programs need to be completely overhauled. Find ways to phase in reduction of benefits so the programs only support those who truly need the help.

You want to see a voting "bloc"? Keep digging that hole, Trump.
Please come back in a conscious state.


No one is going to take away anyone's SS and medicare.


Stop believing democrat socialist propaganda!!!!!! Ryan nor any other republican is going to push granny off a cliff.


It makes perfect sense to change the rules and will only impact those whose career has barely started.


Stop the propaganda induced hysteria!


Don't vote for trump, enjoy being taxed to pay for illegal aliens medical coverage, housing, legal fees and education. You are the benefactor to all the free stuff Trump's opponents have promised to deliver.

WoW! you have a lot of hate in your heart for the elderly.



BTW, none of your sources are credible. Trump absolutely DID NOT say he's cutting any of it.

Just he like told us he'd pass universal healthcare?

Did he tell you that only the tax cut for corporations would be permanent?

Sounds like you missed your daily dose of MAGA koolaid today, Waldo

No problem. Republicans will see that these cuts only hurt younger workers. The boomers have never shown the slightest hesitation to put the costs and consequences of their greed on the backs of their children and grandchildren.

Just as most of us figured. Give it all to the rich and make the poor seniors even poorer. Good going Republicans. This is not a party for middle class or below.

Lol when you decide to leave your right wing safe space bubble, start reading up on the stuff that Paul Ryan,, Mitch McConnell etc have been saying for years.

Someone has to pay for all those tax cuts that mainly went to corporations and the wealthy.

McConnell was talking about this last year
