.
or maybe she can add and subtract
Claiming SS is not broke is like claiming someone who has gone off a 500 foot cliff but hasn't hit the rocks below yet is safe. No matter how much they take in simple addition and subtraction shows SS is like the person in mid fall from the cliff headed for a sudden stop.

SS administration is presenting the unsecured bonds from the trust fund for redemption every year. That means they are paying out more than they are taking in from payroll taxes. There is some debate as to how many years it will be before the trust fund is exhausted but there is no question it will be drained. Keep in mind that this is a systemic problem in the design of the SS system.

Tax reform or not the SS funding problem is one of demographics, too few people paying in to support current benefits levels. It is nothing but partisan political grandstanding to blame tax reform for the problem.

This tax reform is going to be great for this country across the board.

Especially for the people that work, produce and pay taxes. 2018 is going to be HUGE.

The ones that went against this legislation will be on the wrong side of history.

And the never Trumpers will be OUT-OF-OFFICE
