So what is America going to do? They are going to cut Social Security and Medicare and leave Medicaid, food stamps and welfare. And after finding out that cutting Social Security and Medicare is not enough, they will continue to cut Retired Military and Veteran’s. However, Medicaid, Food Stamps and Welfare will continue to flourish. What a country. Sorry but I don’t consider Social Security to be an entitlement. I know some here do but I don’t because we pay into the system (which I know pays the current retirees). Plus you can’t really cut 1400 dollars too much. It already is hardly enough.
And they’re going to import millions more of immigrants who will suck up yet more resources either in taking American jobs, or immediately hitching a ride on the great American gravy train, or in some cases, both.
“Plus you cant really cut 1400 dollars too much. It already is hardly enough.”
They are “inflating away” social security. The Consumer Price Index now excludes food & energy because they are considered to be “too volatile”. What a joke. Those two categories alone are eating up most household budgets.
Now the elderly may not drive too much, but they do need to eat. And energy costs are ‘baked’ into the price of everything else we buy.
