Let’s look at the details of Warren’s plan and how they differ from two proposals introduced in Congress, the Social Security 2100 Act, introduced by Rep. John B. Larson (D-Conn.), and the Social Security Expansion Act, filed by Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.), who is one of Warren’s rivals for the presidential nomination, and Rep. Peter A. DeFazio (D-Ore).

On the benefit side, Warren’s plan is the most generous of the three. She’d increase benefits by $200 a month across the board.

Warren’s plan would also restore the student benefit for full-time students 19 or older, a provision that was repealed in 1981, leaving benefits only for students in K-12 school up to the age of 18.

We've got to keep up with this news. I know some of you are already receiving benefits, I'd like to get mine too when I become of age

If a well-regulated militia be the most natural defense of a free country, it ought certainly to be under the regulation and at the disposal of that body which is constituted the guardian of the national security.

If you want to keep up with news like this, Warren also has a bridge in Brooklyn that she would like to sell you that's sitting in a used car lot.

The reality is that you cannot continue to raise taxes on the working class in order to support those who don't work, illegals, those in prison, those on welfare, free healthcare for everyone and raise minimum wage like she is suggesting and expect those people to be able to sustain those programs.  What are they going to have to live on?   Job creation, cutting taxes and expanding the wealth of individuals is what will continue to sustain this country.

Hint #1:  she is lying to you      Hint #2:  Socialism doesn't work, hasn't worked in the past and won't work in the future.
"I believe in the United States of America as a Government of the people, by the people, for the people; whose just powers are derived from the consent of the governed; a democracy in a republic; a sovereign nation of many sovereign states; a perfect union one and inseparable; established upon those principles of freedom, equality, justice and humanity for which American patriots sacrificed their lives and fortunes. I therefore believe it is my duty to my country to love it; to support its Constitution; to obey it laws; to respect its flag; and to defend it against all enemies." -William Page

Who's gonna pay for the changes?

And as for the "trust fund"...it's non existent. Has been since the Clinton years when he raided it to "balance" the budget.
The libs/dems of today are the Quislings of former years. The cowards who would vote a fraud into office in exchange for handouts from the devil.

What she says to try and get elected and what she does are two different things.
Standard issue. She will likely be the Dem Candidate, despite the whole fake indian thing (which the press will minimize and give her a pass on, after all it was a mistake, right?) Butboy will likely be her running mate to pull in some Midwest on the ticket (even though I'd say he is no typical Midwesterner), and pull in the alphabet people, too. She's the new Hillary, and I don't think Cankles is really up for the rematch.

Do you really believe what she is saying or is this just another troll attempt?  @OfTheCross

No surprise Warren loves SS - where else do you have built-in triple taxation of your earnings? The payroll tax comes off the top, but then you still get to pay federal and maybe state income tax on that "income" you never actually got, then pay income tax on it again when they start giving some of it back to you. It's a socialist trifecta.

That seems to be the plan, doesn't it?

With this plan and her other proposals, Warren will successfully confiscate everything from those who make a good living or own a small business. She probably never learned that if you tax something, you get less of it. But then she has no real world experience.

Don't call it the "Federal Government," that's an insult to the Founders.  It's a "National Government."

Leftists seem to me to be an aberration in the development of the species Homo sapiens. What’s wrong with these people? They make no practical sense. They are filled with social theories and utopian ideas of the worst sort.

@aligncare

Leftists are adults who haven’t lost  their child like view of the world. Elizabeth Warren not only has a simplistic, childlike view of how things work, she has no real world experience to fall back on. That’s why all her proposals are crazy and unrealistic to the rest of us. But in her world, they work.

I have little interest in streamlining government or in making it more efficient, for I mean to reduce its size. I do not undertake to promote welfare, for I propose to extend freedom. My aim is not to pass laws, but to repeal them.

Or, she knows none of her proposals are really going to come to fruition but she’s entertaining a base

When I hear people  like Warren make these grand promises, it reminds me of that skit on Eddie Murphy’s  “Raw” were he imitates an Italian guy at the movie theater who orders all kinds of things from the concession stand and then says the black guy next to him is going to pay for it all

Is there an 'Opt Out' box?
If a political party does not have its foundation in the determination to advance a cause that is right and that is moral, then it is not a political party; it is merely a conspiracy to seize power.

Yes.  The 'opt out' box is President Donald J. Trump.
