Heritage - What No One Wants to Admit About Social Security Taxes 

April 14, 2014

 

What No One Wants to Admit About Social Security Taxes

It’s a bummer when you see how much income tax comes out of your paycheck. But when you see that Social Security line item, do you think, “At least that’s going to pay for my retirement”?

It’s not.

The tax money you’re paying into Social Security today is going to fund today’s retirees. Who will pay for your benefits? The next generation of workers.

And the payout gets worse with each generation.

Disability disaster looms

America's disability epidemic cannot be chalked up exclusively to an aging population.

"Only 7.2 percent of the uninsured will fail to get insurance because half the states don't expand Medicaid? We could fail to insure that many just by bureaucratic snafus alone."

ALG - Obama won't deal with Social Security

Sept. 24, 2012, Fairfax, VA—Americans for Limited Government President Bill Wilson today issued the following statement responding to Obama strategist David Axelrod's refusal to "have [a] discussion right now" about Social Security because "Social Security is a more distant problem":

"It truly is pathetic that David Axelrod, the chief strategist for Team Obama, admits they have no plan to proactively work toward fixing any entitlement program like Social Security until the program reaches a crisis level. This is not the kind of leadership that America expects from their president, but is revealing about the central tenet of the Obama Administration. Bounce between crisis to crisis reacting with big government 'solutions' rather than anticipating problems and working to deal with them before we hit the brink of a government shutdown, default on our debts or even failing to meet obligations to seniors and pensioners.

"Adults don't act this way, Obama's term in office has proven that he neither has the vision or courage of an adult leading our nation, but rather Obama's term is more like a petulant child who is always pointing his finger at others. Our nation faces a world of nearly unprecedented financial and international peril; it is time for the adults to take over."

Video: Obama's Social Security Defunding Flaws

Our major national program Social Security is supposed to protect people from retiring without money. Yet it has a slight problem. The Obama Administration has been handling it blunderously!

Job training without jobs is like dog walking with no dogs: useless

$15.4 billion of taxpayer money that Obama has given to nearly 50 federal job training programs as highlighted by the Wall Street Journal are mostly getting wasted on things like exaggerated employee salaries for those responsible for running the programs, and casino trips.
