Payroll tax cut would be the beginning of the end of Social Security.

Last edited Tue May 12, 2020, 03:54 PM - Edit history (2)

Trump would be delirious to end the payroll tax because that would be the beginning of the end of Social Security and Medicare et al. Trump would reserve his place as the lowest despot in history.

2. The benefits will go mostly to affluent employed people

Why spend so much money on those less in need than others?

3. The reTHUGS have had a wet dream about cutting Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid

for years. It's part of the abnormality that is a reTHUG brain. I don't expect tRUMP to ever consider his place in history, at least not until we bring the final and fatal blow to all his corrupt efforts. That's part
of his particularly abnormal brain. We've got to push back HARD if we expect to win out.

5. There's going to be very few payrolls to tax. This is only the beginning of the econodemic. (I think

I made a new word there).

7. I would cut the payroll tax temporarily...

in exchange for entirely and permanently removing the cap beyond which income is not subject to the tax.

9. His intentions are to hurt the SS system

Making it weaker , and watch how long before he claims he has to redo SS, which he'll use to destroy it , like he still is trying to do to the ACA. He'll do the same thing with redoing the FBI, the US Post office, and schools, all to destroy them. trump and the GOP will soon be suggesting huge cuts to Medicaid , Medicare, and to SS , again. Not increasing the tax rates to the wealthy he gave them, and we're paying for.

12. Don't kid yourself for a second, Trump, McConnel and their ilk

Dream of a two class world. Their class and a penniless class clamoring for any kind of work at any pay.
