I saw an ad on TV by the AARP that shows a senior citizen, with a gang of seniors behind him, saying: “... Washington, before you even think about cutting my Medicare, and Social Security benefits, here’s a number you should remember: 50 million. WHAT an ABSOLUTE LIE!!! The TRUSTEES STATE BENEFITS will be CUT.. not politicians! NOT ONE person that WANTS to CONTINUE Medicare/SS are suggesting CUTTING BENEFITS for CURRENT MEDICARE/SS beneficiaries! IT IS A BALD FACE LIE :"cutting my Medicare, and Social Security benefits, " BUT AARP is using SCARE TACTICS based ON LIES to insure the Failure of Medicare and Social Security! AARP is going against the Trustees of Social Security's Assessment.. PLEASE Download this presentation from THE TRUSTEES!!! FACTS FIRST.. from the Trustees of report that can be downloaded.. Social Security Benefits, Finances, and Policy Options: A Primer | National Academy of Social Insurance Page 25 ------In 2010 Trust fund received $781.1 billion paid out $712.5 billion leaving $68.6 billion used by U.S. government. BUT!!!! page 31...In 2023, revenues plus interest income to the trust funds will be less than total expenditures for that year. Reserves will start to be drawn down to pay benefits. MY COMMENT: MORE MONEY WILL BE PAID OUT THEN MONEY COMING IN!! In 2036, trust fund reserves are projected to be depleted. Income is projected to cover 77% of benefits due then. MY COMMENT: MORE MONEY PAID OUT THEN MONEY COMING IN!! By 2085, assuming no change in taxes, benefits or assumptions, revenue would cover about 74% of benefits due then. MY COMMENT: MORE MONEY PAID OUT THEN MONEY COMING IN!! Advocates that WANT to SAVE Medicare/SS suggest ANYONE under 55 be allowed to 1) Accumulate guaranteed over $500,000 in their working life time! WHICH THEY CAN NOT do with AARP's SUGGESTED STATUS QUO! 2) That anyone under 55 can still use current BUT will have a CHOICE.. NOT FORCED!
