On the Upbeat, Positively Carolan

Turn the Tables

Just received a dire note that begins like this:

Tomorrow, Donald Trump will unveil his tax plan, and it is widely rumored to include the elimination or reduction of FICA contributions―Social Security’s dedicated funding stream.

Trump and his team will try and spin this as “middle class tax relief.” But in reality, destroying Social Security’s funding would hurt the very people Trump purports to help.

We must stop Donald Trump from undercutting the future of Social Security.”

To which I responded:

I have been writing about Social Security and the fact that 61 million people now get monthly checks because we have contributed from our salaries all of our working lives!

And if we the people don’t trundle Trump off to a mental facility soon — we may well be after him with weapons in hand!!!!
