GOP plan to cut SS

Just read an article on by John Wasik. Has anybody read it? Looks pretty extreme to me. Calling for cuts up to 35% for some. Wonder if this has a snowballs chance of being passed.

The bill in question is only a proposal, and like most others, may never see the light of day. If it should be considered as a legitimate legislative proposal, its effect on early retirement and forum members can be discussed. In the meantime, it is only political speculation, which is not a legitimate topic per our community rules.

For this reason the thread is being closed.
