Merry Xmas from the Republican Party Scrooges

Trump, who ran on the promise that he wouldn’t cut benefits and specifically opposed raising the retirement age, has so far not commented on the Republican plan. Not even a tweet.

Republitards Deja vu

The first salvo in the War on the Working Class has been fired by House Social Security Subcommittee Chairman Sam Johnson (R-TX).

Johnson’s bill:

-Cuts Social Security benefits by one third.
-Raises the retirement age from 67 to 69.
-Changes the benefit-computation formula in a way that cuts benefit amounts.
-Cuts Cost of Living Adjustments (COLAs)

:frusty:

I think we could save a lot more money by cutting Congressional lifetime benefits, goodies handed out for what is essentially a part-time job.

^^ I agree, it is a part time job, cut session time to about 3 months, the rest of the time spent consorting with constituents.
