  •  Poorest and Neediest Only - another trick (6+ / 0-)

    So we can expect that to be poverty level or thereabouts. Or wow, maybe up to $30K or $40K at best. MEANWHILE, those making $400,000 pay not one more cent in taxes.  

    This is the MIDDLE CLASS SOCIAL SECURITY BENEFITS CUTS bill.  It strikes right at those who were the working or just above working poor. Those with inadequate pensions.  Those with a few thousand in savings.  Those who have enough to get by for a few years.  Those who will already be stretching every dollar precisely because they know they do not have hundreds of thousands in savings to last for 30 years.  They may have adequate assets on paper for today but those assets are insufficient for their future needs.
