Why Trump and GOP want to cut PAYROLL TAXES! [View all]


Payroll Taxes fund Social Security and Medicare. Let me repeat....SOCIAL SECURITY and MEDICARE.

“The current tax rate for social security is 6.2% for the employer and 6.2% for the employee, or 12.4% total. The current rate for Medicare is 1.45% for the employer and 1.45% for the employee, or 2.9% total.”

The GOP have been trying to starve SS and Medicare for years. They see this as a great time, a time of crisis, to do just that. This IS NOT the best way to help workers or stimulate the economy. It is just a way to cut theses very successful and important programs.

Don’t be fooled.
