Social Security

Absolutely no privatization for Social Security. Social Security is fully funded for 20 years, something hard to find in any company.

I am not the only person tired of some members of both parties falsely claiming Social Security is an entitlement.  For the millionth time, this is not welfare. We have all paid for Social Security as any other insurance, not to mention the Fund is fully funded for at least twenty years. I hear no talk, however, of ending "corporate welfare." Jeff Duncan has done well for himself as "our" Congressman. Since taking office and the 2008 Great Recession, his net worth has increased from 1.1 million dollars to 1.6. I don't know about you, but my wife and I lost quite a bit in home value and retirement accounts. The majority of Americans are highly dependent on our Social Security checks to keep us out of poverty. Let's not forget it was REAGAN who started taxing Social Security as well as raided the Trust Fund to pay for the deficits created by his "trickle-down Reaganomics" tax cuts for the wealthy. Prior to Reagan, Social Security income was not taxed. Taxation of our minimal checks needs to stop.

Absolutely no privatization for Social Security. Social Security is fully funded for 20 years, something hard to find in any company. And let's just compare how Wall Street has handled your 401Ks and IRAa. When I cashed mine in after 20 years I simply got less than I had initially invested. The government Thrift Savings Account, for government civilian and military employees, is run by about a dozen employees who are paid a set salary. One trader came to my agency to talk to us. He said he liked where he worked and being paid a salary rather than for trades, which is why your Wall Street accounts lose money. I will introduce legislation to end the cap on Social Security payments, meaning everybody making over $127,200 per year will pay the 6%. This means the United Health Care executive getting $100 million per year is going to hand over $6 million to fund Social Security. I pay my part, you pay yours from now on.
