Whomever came up with the defer FICA taxes idea should be fired. Not just because it’s a dumb idea, but also because it was one of the worst strategic political blunders in a long time. Of course, Trump promoting it hasn’t helped.
The anti-Trump press and pundits have coalesced around the issue playing the destroy Social Security song endlessly.
Sadly, it serves no purpose other than scaring seniors in a quest for their vote. No Congress is going to pass and no president is going to sign legislation ending Social Security.
