Then, the new tax legislation does not affect seniors. It just doesn't give them any freebies. I would assume that should be addressed by other legislation. Remember when we were young and there was no such thing as a "tax credit" for our children? We simply got a deduction, that had not been increased since the fifties?
I am simply amazed at how someone that pays nothing gets a "refund" of several thousand dollars.
The problem, with Social Security, is that "The Greatest Generation" STOLE hundreds of billions, from the boomers. IN 1966, self-employment tax was 2%. It wasn't until 1968, that they threw on the Medicare kicker ... raising it up to 2.5%. Ever since Ronnie-The-Commie-Reagan .. self-employment tax was kicked up to 15.3% ... and where did that money go? It went to the "Greatest Generation", sucking at the government pig trough (our money's trough).
To finance Sander's plan(s), we'd be .. and our children as well ... at least 50%. Stealing from one ... and giving to another ... I just am morally and ethically opposed to such. Of course, now that I fall into that bracket ... If I didn't have children and grandchildren ... I'd be screaming, "Bring it on, Bernie".
