Donald Trump is going right along with the Republican/conservative notion that Social Security is too costly, despite the millions of people who depend on it for, you know, staying alive.
Trump once told Paul Ryan the following, referring to Social Security:
“From a moral standpoint, I believe in it. But you also have to get elected. And there’s no way a Republican is going to beat a Democrat when the Republican is saying, ‘We’re going to cut your Social Security’ and the Democrat is saying, ‘We’re going to keep it and give you more.’”
Let that sink in for a minute. Trump is essentially saying that he believes Social Security is a good idea, but that he’s for cutting it because he thinks it will help him get elected.
From a Bipartisan Report piece:
“Trump is really trying to say that the lazy people in this country will always vote Democrat because it is Democrats who ensure that the less fortunate are, at least, able to keep their heads above water. To politicians like Donald Trump, these “extras” are killing the country.
That’s right folks, it’s Ma and Pa Kettle who are ruining the country with their $1200 monthly allotment from the Treasury Department. It certainly wouldn’t be wasteful, greedy real estate moguls who use other people’s money to pay for their extravagant business deals.”
Donald Trump will destroy our economy. He will destroy our reputation around the world. He will enable terrorism. And now, Donald Trump will destroy your future well being. And why? Because he wants to get elected as part of a party that thinks anyone who isn’t a millionaire (or more) isn’t worth it.
