POC Will Be Crushed By This Tax Scam

Republicans are going to blow up the budget, and then start cutting.

The poor, the elderly, and minorities will be hit the hardest.

Just saying.

2. I am on social security

 

and counting on younger folks to keep working and paying into social security system. Boomers are retiring much faster than new workers coming into the system. We need more immigrants and more children born here, otherwise social security and Medicare goes bankrupt.

3. If We Raise The Cap It Won't Go Bankrupt

 

When the young take over, and the old right wing nut jobs die off, things will get fixed, if we still have a democracy.

6. America is getting old!

 

America is ageing! During the next decade, 4 times as many boomers will retire and draw social security benefits, as new workers entering the work force.

Raising the cap will only delay the bankruptcy, not eliminate it. Europe and Japan are already in trouble due to low birth rates. Japan has much bigger national debt already compared to USA. We need more YOUNG immigrant workers and higher birth rates to sustain the entitlements.

5. You Are Right

 

But a larger percentage of minorities rely on help, and they will be the first ones screwed.

7. You are so correct!

 

For example Americans tracing ancestry to India have highest AVERAGE income compared to any other group, including US born people of European ancestry.

9. Good point. And it's more pain to the 55-65 group

that is being wapped by health insurance costs and pushed into early retirement. That's the group that's dying earlier than their parents.
