Proposed Change to Social Security

A cut of future benefits.

medium-wage worker with a 44-year record (one with about $49,000 wages in 2016) will start retirement with an 11.4 percent benefit cut. The cut will increase to 18.8 percent by age 95.

A high-wage worker with a 44-year record (about $78,600 for 2016) will start retirement with a 19.9 percent benefit cut. It will increase to a 26.6 percent cut by age 95.

A top-wage worker with a 44-year record (one earning $118,500 in 2016) will start retirement with a 25.2 percent cut. It will increase to a 65.4 percent cut by age 95.

Benefit cuts increase each year after 2030. A 33-year-old medium-wage worker today would experience a benefit cut of 33.2 percent when retiring in 2050. That cut would increase to 34.1 percent by the time he or she reached age 95.

Control the money illegals cost the U.S. taxpayers each year ($100 billion +) and we wouldn't have to cut those Social Security benefits.

In CA illegals cost the state $25+ billion each year (education, health care, first responders, law enforcement, social services, govt services, etc.)

Put in perspective, Utah total expenditures in 2015 were $12.9 billion.

Control the crazy costs associated with illegals - take care of tax paying American citizens.
