All citizens should support our safety net programs, but not everybody should be on them.
Hogwash, we're not headed for default. SS is solvent & is not in any real trouble,if at all,til 2035. At which point,a simple adjustment in taxes and benefits would fix.
Maybe,the rich 250,000 and above shouldn't be on it,but should pay,or continue to pay into it as long as they work.
