Here’s the correct headline:
Trump suggests he may be open to entitlement cuts in future
President Donald Trump APPEARED to suggest...
This is the AP FAKE NEWS!!! Trump has stated over and over he would NEVER touch this stuff, do you believe Trump OR the LYING MEDIA!!!
Don’t you get it? Orange Man Bad.
The Democrat Media is trying to run a number on Trump - shove him onto the Third Rail.
I trust Trump.
“Trump has stated over and over he would NEVER touch this stuff, do you believe Trump OR the LYING MEDIA!!!”
He also said he would put jobs for Americans first, but he has become an advocate for importing H1b workers. He said so explicitly to Laura Ingraham in a nationally televised interview two weeks ago. Credit to her, she fought back, reminding him, “You ran on America First.”
I think the impeachment thing - his need to be acquitted in the Senate — has made him beholden to some of the GOP senators who oppose the things he ran on. They’re essentially blackmailing him into giving ground on his MAGA agenda.
“I trust Trump.”
Hope you’re right. I don’t trust any politician. The Bible tells me not to. (Psalm 146)
Spending is outpacing revenue. Until that changes, nothing else matters.
I recall one of the electrician’s that worked for the Military District of Washington was a dedicated Democrat, but he railed against the concept of social security. He was clear in his desire to have his automatic deductions stopped and to be able to invest it in his 401K or a similar plan, because he didn’t trust the government social security program to have any money to pay him or anyone else when he retires in another 10 years.
“I recall one of the electricians that worked for the Military District of Washington was a dedicated Democrat, but he railed against the concept of social security”
So? Your point?
Well, hes not a politician by trade. Additionally he seems to be doing a bang up job of being a benevolent leader. 4 more years.
“Spending is outpacing revenue. “
Up until this year, Social Security current yearly contributions exceeded yearly payouts. Even for the next 15 years, the total of yearly contributions plus interest on bonds purchased with past surpluses will, in total exceed payouts.
The claim that Social Security has contributed to recent deficits is a lie.
“4 more years.”
His reelection won’t be made easier if he lets people think he’s going to cut Social Security - something he EXPLICITLY promised not to do when he ran last time.
If he truly hasn’t reversed his 2016 promise, he had better make that clear.
nice pile of weasel words you dredged up here
I think if he proposed booting able bodied 30 year olds from receiving SS dollars a groundswell of non leftists would support him. Got to start somewhere.
A DC Democrat who would not object to cutting down or out social security. And he mentioned that he would be able to leave to his family any of the invested money that remained after his death, especially if he died after collecting SS for a year or two...
