Let's be clear about American politics and how convoluted it really is. You think attacks on social security is just a republican thing or something tied to this recent presidential campaign?

Obama Wanted to Cut Social Security. Then Bernie Sanders Happened.

Okay, lets get clear-eyed about the perils of Social Security. By comparison, captured from the above source information and cited below, on the Obama administration's position; is a far cry from what Paul Ryan and the republicans are seeking with "vouchers" and "privatization" of Social Security ...


"... The administration’s budget proposed using the so-called chained Consumer Price Index formula to calculate benefits instead, which would slow the rate of benefit increases in the future so as to reduce overall spending. Social Security Works estimated that under the chained CPI the average beneficiary who just started receiving benefits would receive a yearly benefit $653 lower after 10 years ..."


At the end of the day, I'd trust a democrat or an independent over any republican when it comes to managing Social Society.

Despite rising premiums, dwindling insurers and the Republican vow to repeal President Barack Obama's health care law, about 400,000 more people signed up through Monday than for a comparable period in 2015, the Health and Human Services Department said ...

Trump’s death panel: The president-elect already violated health care promises by appointing Tom Price
Trump's pledge to protect Americans who depend on Obamacare, Medicare and Medicaid is a matter of life or death


... But not long after their euphoria over his inauguration fades, they are going to learn why his administration is so likely to drive those statistics in the wrong direction. Despite his promises to protect Social Security and Medicare — and his vow to replace the Affordable Care Act with “something much better” — Trump’s cabinet appointees and his allies in Congress plan ruinous changes to those programs; and that will mean ruin, and in thousands of cases death, for the mostly white and working-class people who depend so heavily on them ...
