3. Bout time a POTUS has the courage to act!

All of them have $0 in their trust funds. Just a bunch of fed IOU's/

These 3 are broke and spending more than they take in regularly now. Better to take small cuts than have to whack all at once massive tax increases and major cuts to these unconstitutional programs.

10. So then you believe slavery is constituional?

USSC ruled it constitutional

You believe in separate but equal then? USSC ruled that Constitutional?

You believe that we are a Christian nation? USSC declared that as well!

You believe th egovt. has the power to stop you form growing tomatoes in your own yard?? USSC ruled that constitutional.

Amendment 10:


The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

So show in the constitution where the fed has the power to force people into retirement programs or health care programs!

12. That was decided a long time ago.

Constitutionality of Social Security Act
The constitutionality of the Social Security Act was settled in a set of Supreme Court decisions issued in May 1937. The text of those decisions, with dissents, is presented here. (We also include a brief historical essay to help general readers better understand the context of the decisions.)
1937 Supreme Court Opinions
The full text of Justice Cardozo's opinion in Helvering vs. Davis.
The full text of Justice Cardozo's opinion in Steward Machine Co. vs. Davis, plus dissents.
The full text of Justice Stone's opinion in Carmichael vs. Southern Coal & Coke and Gulf States Paper, plus dissent.

32. No this topic is the constitutionality of something.

You said SCOTUS ruled it was and I asked you about other things SCOTUS ruled as constitutional. so answer the question and quit dodging!

9th Amendment:The enumeration in the Constitution, of certain rights, shall not be construed to deny or disparage others retained by the people.

10th Amendment:The powers not delegated to the United States by the Constitution, nor prohibited by it to the States, are reserved to the States respectively, or to the people.

So show me that forcing people to participate in a government run retirement system is constitutional.

33. Saalam! where are you?????

SCOTUS upheld the constitutionality of slavery several times!

They upheld the constitutionality of separate but equal

They declared the mass murder of babies is constitutional!

They declared as constitutional the govt. stopping you form having a tomato plant in your yard if they choose too!

So you agree with all these- you have to is you think that every decision of SCOTUS is constitutional!

11. I gave you the budget. Either you didn't read it or you are deliberatly lying.

Once again the article you posted does not provide the current spending levels and the proposed spening levels. Ask yourself, why not? Because they know if they do they cannot claim there are cuts when the numbers show that there are annual increases every year.

This type of article is tailor made for people that believe anything they read if it reinforces what they already believe. Confirmation bias at its finest. You are sucker for continuing to fall for it after you have been provided a link which shows the actual increases.

14. SS goes up every single year over the next 10 years

In fact it doubles from the sum spent in 2018. In no way, shape or form is doubling the money budgeted for SS a decrease or less spending.

Again, you are clueless. If this is an act it is time to put it to rest. If it is not, then my apologies. It is rude to point out the shortcomings of others.

More recipients does not mean Trump's proposed budget cuts SS.
