Social Security / Medicare
Americans know the system is rigged against them. That includes their Social Security benefits. Many rich do not contribute their fair share because their contribution monies are capped at $200,000.
The energy, commodities, and other markets are also rigged on Wall Street. So when it comes to increasing the COLA for retired or disabled individuals, the government makes sure there is no raise. 2017 will mark the second year in a row for zero inflation help.
The annual report from the Trustees gives Social Security a dismal future prospects for American's retirement. With a push to privatize and therefore steal Americans retirements and wealth through the corrupt gambling institution known as Wall Street, politicians are hopeful of the program's demise. Their banker and Wall Street backers cannot steal unless it's in the market, of course.
Another Globalist agenda to ruin the prosperity of the American worker. here is a dose of reality from Paul Craig Roberts for Infowars:
Republicans regard Social Security as an “unfunded liability,” that is, a giveaway that is interfering with our war-making ability.
Alas, Social Security is an unfunded liability, because all the money working people put into it was stolen by Republicans and Democrats in order to pay for wars and bailouts for mega-rich bankers like Goldman Sachs.
What I am about to tell you might come as a shock, but it is the absolute truth, which you can verify for yourself by going online to the government’s annual OASDI and HI reports. According to the official 2010 Social Security reports, between 1984 and 2009 the American people contributed $2 trillion, that is $2,000 billion, more to Social Security and Medicare in payroll taxes than was paid out in benefits.
What happened to the surplus $2,000 billion, or $2,000,000,000,000.
The government spent it.
So the next time you see summer prices go down, note what the politicians want you to believe: those retirees and disabled people deserve not to eat or afford their medications. The war machine and all those poor rich defense contractors must be funded or politicians will not get bribed into office.
Stand up, America! End the wars that are creating poverty and destitution in our country.
Also end the lies that old people and the disabled are contributing to your economic woes instead of morally and ethically bankrupt NeoCon, Globalist opportunists hiding as representative government.
