New Repug plan to ‘fix’ Social Security
Forget privatizing Social Security with individual retirement accounts – that idea is so 2003. John “Orange Man” Boehner rolls out the newest GOP plan to ‘fix’ Social Security – everybody will just have to work until they die. What’s next, Orange Man – making up for lost tax revenues by bringing in ‘younger’ workers – like maybe child labor? With loonies like “Ayn” Rand Paul waiting in the wings for the upcoming election I wouldn’t be too surprised to see that concept mooted. And with the current reactionary makeup of the SCOTUS, it’s not inconceivable that they might take a strict ‘Originalist’ interpretation of the Federal Government’s ability to restrict labor practices (they’ve ruled in favor of child labor before).
To personalize this just a bit, my mom is still working in her late 70s, and my dad was working up until his first cancer treatments – I imagine a lot of people could say that Boehner’s fix is already the Status Quo.
