    Taking away social security, medicare, unemployment or increasing the age at which it applies, or decreasing the benefit IS A NEW TAX. That money IS YOURS. YOU paid for that program already. If the government takes money that belongs to you, it is taxing you.

    If you paid for home owners insurance and your home burned down, you would expect to get paid. You would not expect your benefit to be reduced AFTER you paid and your home burned down.
