Trump could request an increase once the entitlements are "on his plate".




If he did that, rabid Republicans would try to impeach him !!

Since Trump came to power, I've noticed a huge increase in Republican glorification of the jew/nwo's wealthy powerful oligarch elite and a huge increase in Republican attacks against safety-net welfare programs that benefit average Americans, like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid.

Trump gave away the Republican game on Social Security and Medicare

" During an interview with CNBC on Wednesday, Trump was asked, "[Would] entitlements ever be on your plate?" Entitlements are, of course, Washington-speak for Medicare and Social Security. Trump responded, "At some point they will be," adding, "It'll be toward the end of the year." Just in case Trump misunderstood, Joe Kernen followed up, reminding him this was something he had "said you wouldn't do in the past" and specifically mentioning Medicare. Trump cut him off. "Well, we're going to look."

This Washington Post article is very informative.

It's no surprise that Edomite-jew oligarch Bloomberg is against social welfare programs. He used to be Republican and still is on this issue !

Here is another quote from the article:

Let me explain. When a politician endorses benefit freezes, making cost-of-living raises less generous and raising the age of eligibility for benefits, they are cutting people's Social Security checks, no matter how they try to frame the issue. That's because recipients will receive less money over the long haul. The National Women's Law Center calculated in 2011 that a switch to a less generous inflation calculation would cost the average woman more than $1,500 a year if she lived to 95. Most people rightly recognize these sorts of things - which are usually advertised as an attempt to improve the program - as a reduction in the monthly stipend they will receive.

Instead, a number of politicians have adopted the strategy of framing these kinds of proposed changes as an attempt to save the program from a worse fate. You don't need to believe me. David Stockman said it in the early 1980s, claiming such a strategy would "permit the politicians to make it look like they're doing something for the beneficiary population when they're doing something to it which they normally wouldn't have the courage to undertake." This has been the Republican game for decades....

... (It's also worth noting that former New York City mayor Mike Bloomberg has also been known to worry about Social Security and Medicare, claiming on "Face the Nation" in 2013, "No program to reduce the deficit makes any sense whatsoever unless you address the issue of entitlements, Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security.")

Now Trump - out of ignorance, bluster or hubris - has all but taped an attack ad for his eventual Democratic opponent. Democrats can't afford to let this opportunity slip away. They need to hang it around Trump's neck....

Forget about the impeachment circus... THIS is the issue that could be Trump's undoing.
The irony is... he fell on his elitist forked tongue while 'hobnobbing with billionaires."




Trump admits he will seek to cut Social Security
while 'hobnobbing with billionaires' in Davos




January 22, 2020

" "It'll be toward the end of the year," Trump said from Davos, Switzerland. "And at the right time, we will take a look at that. You know, that's actually the easiest of all things, if you look, cause it's such a big percentage."

While attending the World Economic Forum's summit of global elites in the Swiss mountaintop retreat of Davos on Wednesday, President Donald Trump openly admitted he would - if reelected in 2020 - consider cutting back funding for key social programs including Social Security, Medicaid, and Medicare.


"After a day of hobnobbing with billionaires in Davos, President Trump publicly revealed that cuts to earned Medicare and Social Security benefits will be on the table as soon as the end of this year. The cruel irony of this scene cannot be overstated."

Richard Fiesta, Alliance for Retired Americans



The remarks came in an interview with CNBC's Joe Kernen in Davos, and although the news outlet did not report them in their initial write-up of the exchange, they were captured in the transcript:

KERNEN: Do I dare - one last question.

PRESIDENT TRUMP: Go ahead.

KERNEN: Entitlements ever be on your plate?

TRUMP: At some point they will be. We have tremendous growth. We're going to have tremendous growth. This next year I - it'll be toward the end of the year. The growth is going to be incredible. And at the right time, we will take a look at that. You know, that's actually the easiest of all things, if you look, cause it's such a -

KERNEN: If you're willing -

TRUMP: - big percentage.

KERNEN: to do some of the things that you said you wouldn't do in the past, though, in terms of Medicare -

TRUMP: Well, we're going - we're going to look -.

For those who needed a translation, MarketWatch columnist Pedro Nicolaci da Costa spelled it out plainly: "Trump told CNBC he wants to cut Social Security."

Reaction from defenders of the key safety net programs was swift.

"After a day of hobnobbing with billionaires in Davos, President Trump publicly revealed that cuts to earned Medicare and Social Security benefits will be on the table as soon as the end of this year," said Richard Fiesta, executive director of the Alliance for Retired Americans, in a statement. "The cruel irony of this scene cannot be overstated."

"While Davos billionaires may not understand the importance of Social Security and Medicare, millions of Americans who rely on the health and retirement benefits they have earned through a lifetime of hard work do," added Fiesta. "Social Security and Medicare are vital for a secure retirement. Americans pay the highest prescription drug prices in the world. This burden and affording other basic necessities make it harder for retirees to make ends meet. Cutting Social Security and Medicare would be a cruel disaster."

In the context of the 2020 election, Linda Benesch, communications director for the advocacy group Social Security Works, said Donald Trump ran on a promise to protect Social Security in 2016, "but that was a lie." Since taking office, especially with the help of top aide Mick Mulvaney, the Trump administration has repeatedly signaled its desire to cut funding for the key programs.

"His budget proposals include Social Security cuts," Benesch explained to Common Dreams in an email. "Now, he's flat out saying that he plans to target 'entitlements' (AKA earned benefits.) We need a Democratic nominee who can draw a clear contrast with Trump on Social Security. That will be far more difficult for Joe Biden, who has a history of being open to cuts, than it would be for Bernie Sanders or Elizabeth Warren."

Once again, Trump is threatening to cut and undermine our Social Security system. We can't let him get away with it. pic.twitter.com/NjjsV68XlC

Struggling seniors and retirees, said Fiesta, "need help, not a slap in the face."

Quote from recent Forbes article:

Social Security Serves Those Who Serve Our Nation

" Social Security isn't traditionally thought of as a veterans' program but, in fact, it is vital to those who have served us... Veterans and their families make up around one-third of all Social Security beneficiaries."

https://www.forbes.c...rve-our-nation/


"Paralyzed Veterans of America" officially endorses the current House SS bill... "Social Security 2100 Act"... which would strengthen SS through the 21st century and LOWER federal taxes on SS income. Yes, SS income can be taxed and those tax thresholds were never indexed for inflation. But when Trump touted tax cuts that mostly helped wealthy oligarchs... he said NOTHING and did NOTHING to cut unfair federal taxes on SS benefits to low and middle income Americans.

https://larson.house...l-security-2100

https://larson.house...-enhance-social


But of course, most Republicans oppose this bill because... like Scrooge... they despise social safety nets like Social Security and prefer poor, old and disabled people [even disabled veterans] to "die already" and "decrease the surplus population!"

Congress would never approve a cut in SS payments, but freezing them might happen in a financial emergency caused by more wars.

 

It's the wars that are the problem with the US government's bankrupt condition.
