  •  Don't believe in saving social security (4+ / 0-)
    Recommended by:

    Unless social security is in a lockbox,  don't believe politicians when they say they want to save social security by decreasing entitlement reform.  Currently social security is in a surplus and is being used to fund budgetary deficits.  Government is incapable or has no desire to pay Social security what it owes to it.  

    So when politicians want to decrease the pension to seniors they really want to make social security in perpetual surplus to increase the revenues at the back of seniors and working people so that the wealthy don't have to pay more in taxes.  This thus have the effect of broadening the tax base or making the tax rate less progressive.

    wall Street Casino is the root of the problem. Don't call them banks.
