Republican Tax Cut For Rich To Kill Social Security and Medicare

A quick look at the Republican "Pledge To America" shows that Republicans have nowhere near the same focus on cutting spending as they do on cutting taxes.

(Giving them power would unleash a round of tax cuts targeted to the super rich that will push Social Security and Medicare over the edge to cause them to be cut back or eventually eliminated)

I don't consider those making $250K/year the super rich.

Do you have any credible links proving your accusation that these tax cuts will cause Social Security and Medicare to be eliminated?

Sounds like fear mongering to me.

Obama's policies are crushing to small business.

Tom, once again your reasonable response deserves applause. I agree on Social Security. In fact, I'm of the opinion that Social Security should be paid out only when one is no longer ABLE to work, not when one just doesn't feel like working anymore. I surely expect to be working well into my 70s and won't draw on SS until I am forced to. But then, I'm counting on supporting family members in their old age, so...

I guess in my part I'm looking at parents who both are complaining about how little money they get in retirement (only one of whom really does get very little) when both of them are still quite capable of working. It's hard on me thinking that I will very possibly end up spending my retirement savings taking care of them.
