Trump and Ryan Agree: Letís Dismantle Social Security
Someone has to pay for the trillions of dollars in tax cuts to billionaires and Corporate America - it might as well be the disabled and elderly.
You can thank all of our Trump supporters for the impending hardships that the middle class and elderly will suffer in the coming years.
Trump and Ryan Agree: Let’s Dismantle Social Security
In his quest for the Republican nomination, Donald Trump has attacked Hispanics and Muslims. Now that he is pivoting to the general election, seeking campaign contributions from wealthy donors and endorsements from the Republican establishment, he is signaling his willingness to go after working families.
Now that Trump has clinched the nomination and is seeking money from the GOP’s big donors, and support from the party’s establishment, however, he has changed his mind — or at least his position. (Who knows what he really thinks?)
Social Security has been a target of the Republican Party from the moment the legislation was introduced in 1935
This year, Sam Clovis, Trump’s top policy advisor, attended the Peterson Summit. And what he had to say was music to the ears of the well-heeled conference-goers:
A Trump administration would be open to cuts in Social Security and Medicare.
Trump reportedly wants to cut Social Security ... but won't admit it
If Donald Trump is elected president, Social Security might be no more.
The presidential hopeful recently told House Speaker Paul Ryan he wants to cut Social Security "from a moral standpoint," according to Bloomberg.
The report, citing an unnamed source, says Trump won't admit it publicly.
Hey, Trump voters! Paul Ryan is already coming for your Medicare.
One of the things that separated Donald Trump from his primary competitors — and the rest of the Republican Party in general — was his left-leaning stance on social insurance. Tossing aside a whole generation of conservative agitprop about the "unsustainability" of these programs, he said he would preserve Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid during the campaign.
But Speaker of the House Paul Ryan is a hardcore true believer in movement conservatism, which has been champing at the bit to slash these programs basically since the moment they were implemented. This is an unprecedented opportunity to do so, and it looks like Ryan is going to seize it — and Trump might even go along with it. The people who voted for Trump because he seemed to be a route towards material security for the lower and middle classes got conned.
I'll never understand why you people vote against your own interest, amazing!
