SOCIAL SECURITY is praised worldwide as the very best program.
I gladly paid a little for 35 years for a small pension. I appreciate it.
It pays it's way. Since 1981, the government has borrowed 2700 Billion from it.
It draws interest on those securities.
The top rate can be increased as needed to keep it solvent for decades.
A change to tax “all” income will do much to keep it solvent.
Gambling in derivatives should be taxed. It is usually simple one on one betting.
Such actions adds nothing to our Standard Of Living.
MEDICARE is pay your way. The problem for 50 years has been rising costs.
The World Health Forum ranks us 37% on Efficiency in Health Care yet we pay far more than most efficient. President's audit team has gotten billions in fines and paybacks from overcharges.
VETERAN ADMINISTRATION. Yes! They earned our upkeep for fighting our wars.
Try criticizing benefits to top 10% for such as tax breaks, refunds, etc.
