Social Security is in trouble. Social Security funds old-age retirements, disability insurance, and aid to families.
Social Security goes almost entirely to extremely low-income citizens. Ninety percent of Social Security funding comes from federal payroll taxes. The current president wants to cut and eventually terminate federal payroll taxes. This will kill Social Security and condemn a large number of senior citizens, disabled people and low-income families to live in extreme poverty. Our country is being hit by the coronavirus and massive unemployment. This is not the time to cut the financial lifeline for our most vulnerable citizens.
Phone or write the president and your congressman and demand the federal payroll tax not be cut.
