20. Give me a scenario....

 

of how in the future, if the Social Security tax rate is cut, either party will be arguing to raise the rate back to its original state and not be destroyed for wanting to raise taxes on working people?

Once you cut the tax it's virtually impossible to raise it back up.

Once you've done that, you've given credence to the rightwing and their goal of privatizing Social Security.
