Alex Lawson, Executive Director of Social Security Works explains that Donald Trump has started the destruction of Social Security (SS).
Alex Lawson slams president’s Social Security destroying Executive order
Recently Trump signed 4 documents he called executive orders. Reports indicate that most should be called “executive suggestions” specifically because they have little teeth.
The “executive order” of major concern is the payroll tax delay, not for this year but in the event, Trump was miraculously re-elected. The Washington Post reported the following.
Trump on Saturday forged ahead, deferring but not forgiving Americans’ payroll taxes from Sept. 1 until the end of the year. Trump stressed he would seek to make the changes permanent, telling reporters he would try to “terminate” the payroll taxes Americans rack up between September and the end of the year if he is reelected.
“This will mean bigger paychecks for working families,” he promised at a news conference in Bedminster, N.J.
But experts said that businesses are unlikely to begin deferring tax payments or boosting workers’ checks by next month — or, perhaps, at all. As they await additional guidance from the Trump administration, many are bracing for the gargantuan task of rethinking their payment systems, said Mike Trabold, the director of compliance at Paychex, a payment-processing company. He added that federal law also holds companies responsible if the taxes aren’t properly paid to the U.S. Treasury on time.
Alex Lawson expands on a further reality. His organization is a Social Security advocate. They keep abreast of everything that could negatively affect Social Security.
In the interview Lawson points out that Trump is doing what Republicans have been trying to do for decades. They want Social Security at best gone and at worse privitized.
