8. I need someone to explain

what you mean by "cutting" Social Security. Does that mean if I am making $1000 a month that when the cut happens I'll only be getting $900? Or are you talking about a different way of COLA?, and so instead of $1050 next year it will be more like $1025? Also, is there not some additional part of the budget he proposes that compensates the people who don't make x amount of $/month?

Just so you don't think I am trying to undermine things, you should know that my wife and I are both on Social Security. We have never seen what the proposals in his budget actually mean. We are also very left wing Ds and have never, ever voted for a R. I am saying this because I don't want some antagonistic sarcastic replies, not that I think it would be you, I just know how things go on this kind of subject. Thanks in advance for the information.
