SS recipients, beware and don't forget!!
In August, Trump issued an executive order deferring payroll taxes, which he’s promised to make permanent if he is reelected. He has not laid out any clear alternative plan to fund Social Security.
Social Security’s chief actuary says that terminating Social Security’s dedicated funding, with no plans to pay it back, would destroy the program by 2023. Disability insurance, another core element of Social Security, would be gone by 2021.”
Yet Trump’s promise to de-fund and destroy Social Security could easily have gotten lost in the daily chaos. It isn’t getting a lot of attention on cable news, perhaps because reporters are convinced Trump couldn’t possibly intend to destroy America’s most successful and popular government program — even though he’s promised to do so over and over again.
