The final bill is out many of the things outlined in my thread has change, Medicare and SS will not be touched unless Republicans agree with the taxing of the rich, so things may change in the future if Republicans go along with the demands.

medicare and social security are in dire need of reformation there are people who are on social security who get paid and have never worked a day in their lives.

remember now everyone is suppose to pay not everyone does.

raising the eligibity age should just be checking to see if they have ever worked period.

a point of contention that was said in here im just going to let these links speak for themselves.

something else people seem to be missing that first goverment check called social security those people who receive those beniftis are automatically deducted for their medicare.

the government is paying you and paying themselves back and the same time now come thats crooked as hell
