An Attack On Social Security

Filed under: Social Security — Tags: , , , , — Walter Ebmeyer @ 11:11 am

The scheme concocted by President Obama and the Republicans to cut payments to Social Security is a trap.  As this article makes clear, Republicans are well aware that once Social Security taxes are cut, it will be extremely difficult to restore them to where they belong – especially in an election year!  If the point of this exercise is to stimulate the economy, that can be done much more easily by increasing the Make Work Pay program that is already in place.  But this move ends Social Security’s spendid isolation and mixes it into the regular budget where it can compete with education, health, defense, and so forth.  This is a terrible idea.
