    The article starts insulting not only Trump but his family as well. At that point I quit reading, I am done with the stupidity. If you want to be a dumb fuck, be my guest, I choose not to participate in all the BS, which is all it is.

    What's your solution to this very real problem? Frankly, I don't care, I'm old already I won't lose anything.

    If they cut them back much, they might as well not even have them. Trump got A LOT of the older people because he PROMISED not to touch Social Security or Medicare. He's a liar, and this is the kind of thing that can swing an election.

    Who said he was going to touch it? Raising the retirement age is a good idea. What would your solution be?

    Social Security and Medicare would have been FINE had Presidents not kept dipping into it for other things.

    You want to talk about money? How about not sending billions to other countries like Israel that has enough money to take care of itself? How about cutting back some military spending? The U.S. spends more PER YEAR than the next SEVEN countries COMBINED.
