It is unclear tonight whether the defunding of Social Security and Medicare will continue for another two months or another year or, not at all. Congress, at least those not already on vacation, are still pondering this.
Of course, seniors are hoping the final answer is “not at all” as they know, or should know, that Medicare, per a report issued earlier this year by the Trustees of Social Security and Medicare Trust Funds, will go broke in 2024. And, once it does, by law, annual benefits must be cut to match annual revenues. Of course, the same can be said for Social Security, but, at the moment, Social Security has a slightly longer “shelf life”.
Yet, the President is continuing to champion this defunding of Social Security and Medicare, as are the Democrats in Congress.
I’ve always been told that it is only the Republicans who want seniors to eat dog food and die quickly.
Did I miss something?
