I'm Old, on Social Security, and Just Finished Doing My Taxes

As a Social Security recipient for more than 10 years, I have consistently had the same withholding amount, and I have always received a Federal Tax refund of approximately $1,000. This year, however, under the "wonderful" new Trump/Republcan tax "reform" act, my taxes increased by $780, and my refund dropped to $220. My brother says I "got Trumped." A euphemism for "got screwed."

I don't know if my tax filing experience, and the intense decrease in my refund, is typical, but even if only half of us older people are going through this taxation BS, I can confidently predict that a hell of a lot of old people will definitely NOT vote Republican in 2020.
