... But we have plenty of funds to have Dreamers attend as in-state students, allow illegal aliens to work off-the-books without paying income taxes (or SSI/MC), hand out needles to addicts, and spend $100k busing Baltimore kids to protest the President when their school has no AC.

I believe that Mr. Trump will make another attempt to rein in the growth of spending if he is re-elected in 2020.

He already tried wage and hiring freezes in some govt. departments.

Everyone I know in Santa Cruz is gaming the system and getting free $$ in some form from Uncle Sam. Or, they are not paying taxes on income, or they are illegals getting free health care, schooling, and assistance. I saw Lupe the other day getting out of her late model Infiniti with her little kids (3).

I would freeze all government hiring at the Federal level. Then, I would be mean to those who get rich pensions; I would cut them 5%. I would cut 5% from every department budget, and phase out benefits like HUD housing. I would dissolve federal departments which don't produce what they are named after, e.g. Dept. of Education, Dept. of Energy, maybe some others.

What you gonna do retired Rep/Cons & Rep/Cons that will retire over the next decade or two?
They will have to face their failure to prepare for retirement. Trump will pull the wall money & send it to Rep/Cons when their SS runs out.

Social security can go broke and I'll still be OK.

The feds are sitting on $121 TRILLION in real assets. And that is a low ball figure since no full accounting has ever been conducted, too.

So, I am not worried. Just leasing out the choice pieces -- not selling but leasing -- would generate a shitload of money to shore up SS/Medicare alone.

Trump cut the SS withholding? News to me. The total SS withheld actually went up a decent chunk since Trump has been in office (although I believe the increases are automatic and not dictated by the President). Just shy of a $1k increase for those that cap out since 2016 ($118k to $132k of income roughly @ 6.2% on the employee side of the equation). Doesn't break the bank in my household, but that's $1k less that won't get spent or invested, just sits in government accounts. That's also $1k more the employer pays and doesn't reinvest or pay higher wages.

The tax cuts would influence things like military, education, gov. employees, etc, not SS. So i don't understand what correlation you're trying to make. We also still don't have a full year under the tax cuts to determine if they decreased revenue or increased debt yet. I am skeptical of the whole tax cut to be honest. But if revenue stays flat or increases, Democrats are toast in 2020, and by a big margin. It's really the only hope they have as they've shot themselves in the foot so much, they really don't have one to stand on.

Here is what no one ever asks.

Social security barely pays anything, yet out of money

Government pensions which are luxury in comparison to shitty social security are somehow not running out.

There’s a strange situation. Government fucks worry about own old age, but not taxpayers. Move all government pensions into SS and it’ll suddenly be perma funded the moment their old age is attached to ours.

Meanwhile, the SSDI fund continues to get more solvent as the economy rolls along. Insolvency was pushed out twenty more years. From THE 2019 ANNUAL REPORT OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES OF THE FEDERAL OLD-AGE AND SURVIVORS INSURANCE AND FEDERAL DISABILITY INSURANCE TRUST FUNDS:
Considered separately... the DI Trust Fund reserves become depleted in 2052. In last year’s report, the projected reserve depletion years were... 2032 for DI.

Look at the deficit. After Obama got it under control, Trump has it rising again.

We both know that is not true. Deficits were fixed under Reagan/BushSr, things were still good under Clinton. And after that it was never balanced again, not once.

And what do you think the outcome is? What do you think happens if we balance our revenues and expenses to stop the bleeding? Whether we have a surplus or deficit really doesn't matter. Every single country on this planet is dependent on Americans spending money.

Look at the Bahamas. They're absolutely FUCKED without American tourist money flowing in. And this has nothing to do with currency or debt on our end. It's going to take close to a decade for the northern islands of the Bahamas to even get back to normal. Whether it's resources or natural disasters, we're the only country in the world capable of handling this shit. The debt doesn't matter when your people are fucking dying and you need help. The world will always owe the US money in perpetuity regardless of what US debt they buy.

Have more confidence in your country dude. Deficits won't matter for generations.

Income Tax Revenues are at record levels. And they have been rising every year since 2008. It is ALL on the spending side where we see deficits...just as it is ALWAYS on the spending side that we see deficits, as anyone who had to cut back their spending while unemployed knows damned well.

Nothing exposes Libtards for what they are better than when they compare apples to orangutans in the most embarrassing ways.

Yes, @marcus -- As WookieMan asks, where did Trump cut ANY of the FICA taxes, let alone the one that collects social insecurity revenues? Well?
