Through the newly appointed deficit reduction commission, the Obama Administration and the Democratic Party is preparing for the biggest sell out of the party base since the Clinton Administration’s so-called welfare reform (war on the poor) legislation. The Tallgrass Activist will be working hard to provide readers with the truth about Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. If the U.S. Government honors it debt obligations to the Social Security Trust Fund, and if Congress attacks the greed and corruption besetting the health care system, then we can be confident that Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid will do just fine financially.
My previous blog discusses this issue. I will continue blogging the truth about these programs and the massive deficit. I know most people don’t want too much to read at any one time. Hence, I will keep my posts as short as possible with frequent short updates and evidence concerning the real problem.
Please pass this blog around to friends – especially to friends who think they will need all of their promised Social Security and Medicare benefits when they reach retirement age. I don’t know about you, but I am sick and tired of hearing about what a big problem the health of “baby boomers” will be for the fiscal health of the United States. Remember, you and your employer are paying 15% of each and every one of your paychecks into Social Security and Medicare until your salary reaches $102,000, at which time you will continue paying 2.9% of your check for Medicare along – no matter how much you make.
