Social security


Last quote about Social security

We should not be afraid of debt or borrowing. At the end of the Second World War, the Labour government of Clement Attlee didn't say, oh dear, debt is 250% of GDP, let's park those grand ideas about public ownership, a national health service, building council homes, or creating the protection of social security. No, they built a country to be proud of. They established the institutions that made out country fairer, more equal and stopped people being held back because of the poverty of where they were born.

That's because the tax credits and other benefits they rely on are frozen for the next three years as part of the government's attempt to cut the social security bill. Every time inflation rises it increases the size of this cut. If the OBR's forecast matched that above it would mean that this benefit freeze would amount to a 6.5% real-terms cut over the parliament.

Donald J. Trump

I think the money is going to come from a revved-up economy. I mean, you look at the kind of numbers we're doing - we were probably GDP of a little more than 1 per cent, and if I can get that up to 3 or maybe more, we have a whole different ballgame. If the economy sails, then I'm right, because I said I'm not touching Social Security.

Joe Tomlinson

I always recommend starting with Social Security. It's like buying annuity, but at a much better price.

Joe Tomlinson

Say I claim Social Security at 70 instead of 66. The cost is the amount I give up by claiming later, and the payoff is the difference in annual income when I do claim later on.

Matt Cullina

There is so much rich data in a tax filing. It's not just your date of birth and your Social Security number, but also where you live, your charities, and your dependents' sensitive information. There is a sense of immediacy because the email comes from a person of authority or someone who might ask for this data during tax season.

Sayuri Shirai

If you talk to the households, they all say they are worried about their futures because they don't know how many years they are going to live and then their pensions are not enough. So the most important thing is Abe really has to touch on Social Security expansion reform and try to make this pension, health insurance system more sustainable and that is the only way in order to reduce the anxiety and concerns that are prevailing among the households.

Brad McCarthy

You need to be conservative with withdrawals because you can't count on other sources of income, like Social Security, that most retirees have.

Sam Kerch - Symmetry Software

Every year tax laws change. Payroll departments rely on software programs to stay current and there could be errors along the way. You want to make sure the change that happens on your check is expected. Everybody is going to see some kind of federal taxation – at the least Social Security and Medicare.

Susan Allen

Nannies are accustomed to being paid under the table. Explain that 'This costs me more each year because I'm paying your extra share of Social Security taxes'. I want people to go into it with the full knowledge and transparency of how this relationship works. Don't go into this casually.

Tim Steffen - Robert W. Baird & Co.

If you're paying someone to provide you with services, they have to report it as taxable income. If you don't pay Social Security and Medicare taxes for your employees, you're subject to penalties and fines. It can be considered a felony if you don't pay and this can lead to prison time if it's egregious.

Bob Goodlatte

There is no evidence suggesting that those receiving disability benefits from the Social Security Administration are a threat to public safety. Once an unelected bureaucrat unfairly adds these folks to the federal background check system, they are no longer able to exercise their Second Amendment right.

Jennifer Birchett

I had a client who came into a sizable inheritance and was not looking at relying on Social Security anymore, but they had just applied two months ago.

Jennifer Birchett

They feel nervous Social Security will not be there, so they take it early. We try to encourage confidence that, yes, it will be there.

Jim Buterbaugh

We're not the world's Social Security office. We're not here to take care of people. I understand that people need help, but there are other ways besides bringing them here.

Donald J. Trump

I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.

Ernie Tedeschi - Evercore ISI

2018, according to what the CBO has been telling us over the past couple of years, is when you start to see on one hand the real burden of demographics on entitlement spending on things like Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid come into play, and when you see the recovery in tax revenues from the recession ... be for the most part complete.

Debbie Stabenow

I think folks on Social Security and Medicare ought to be really worried. The alarm bells should be going off right now.

Sam Johnson

I urge my colleagues to also put pen to paper and offer their ideas about how they would save Social Security for generations to come. Americans want, need and deserve for us to finally come up with a solution to saving this important program.

Charles Blahous

The politics of Social Security reform is not getting any easier. When the trust funds run out, it will be too late.

Ben Becker

Trump has triggered a wave of protest and outrage across the country. His election has itself become a point of protest for women, Muslim communities, for immigrants, for people who care about education, social security, Medicare – the list is almost limitless in terms of the people who feel threatened by what a Trump presidency would mean.

Tom Price

Why some folks here in Washington would be willing to let these programs go bankrupt is beyond me. Medicare and Social Security are going broke.

Alastair Wilson - Moody's

The institutions aren't profoundly changed and the challenges are more to do with the government's own balance sheet and what steps this administration takes to contain the growth of social security and healthcare liabilities.

Bernie Sanders

Donald Trump has got to come forward, maybe through one of his tweets, and say clearly that Donald Trump, he will veto any legislation that cuts Medicare, that cuts Medicaid, that cuts Social Security.

Nancy Pelosi

While Speaker Ryan sharpens his knives for Medicare, Chairman Johnson's bill is an alarming sign that Republicans are greedily eyeing devastating cuts to Americans' Social Security benefits as well.

Florian Philippot

It's either deliberately fuzzy and he is hiding his real plan, which is to privatize the social security system ... or he is genuinely back-pedalling and that means we could, if Fillon is elected, be condemned to five years of immobility.

Donald J. Trump

I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid. Every other Republican is going to cut, and even if they wouldn't, they don't know what to do because they don't know where the money is. I do.

Scott Bishop

If you have someone who retired at age 60 and they haven't started their Social Security yet, their average tax bracket might be 10 to 15 percent.

Donald J. Trump

I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican, and I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid.

Johan Luijendijk

We are in favor of a basic income because everybody has enough security to feel free and to make own choices. To care or to have an own business. To work or to volunteer. When someone can live starting from own talents and callings, it's better for everyone. With basic income we can cut social security and huge bureaucracy.

Donald J. Trump

We're not going to hurt the people who have been paying into Social Security their whole life.

Judy Herman

I certainly want to hear that it [Social Security] will be here for the future and that it will maintain the standards that we have come to depend on. I'm 73, and I think that a lot of people my age who are still active adults, going out and doing things all day, still depend on some of those programs. Medicare is a big program.

Susannah Goodman

The D.N.C. hack and the release of the emails are a wake-up call. Emailing is not something you would do with your Social Security number. So why would you do it with your ballot?

Jamie Hopkins

People are coming to retirement, and they don't have much. They have their home, Social Security and a little bit of savings. Why not use the home equity?

Delphine Capdevielle

Our patients don't have much money. So a big challenge for us is to develop a platform that can be used by everyone free of charge, or that can be reimbursed by social security systems. We need to ensure that we don't create further issues for patients who already suffer many challenges.

Hillary Clinton

I will not cut benefits. I want to enhance benefits for low-income workers and for women who have been disadvantaged by the current Social Security system.

Ted Sarenski

Social Security benefits are the backbone of most people's retirement plan. Stay away from serious trouble with the law if you want to retain your earned benefits.

Ted Sarenski

A homegrown terrorist who has earnings in which he or she paid into the Social Security system will lose any current or future Social Security benefits if convicted of subversive activities.

Ted Sarenski

I do not believe this is being taught in any schools across the country. Nor did I know that spouse or parent homicide was such a problem that the Social Security administration needed to add such a rule.

Hillary Clinton

Well, Chris, I am on record as saying that we need to put more money into the Social Security Trust Fund. That's part of my commitment to raise taxes on the wealthy. My Social Security payroll contribution will go up, as will Donald's, assuming he can't figure out how to get out of it. But what we want to do is to replenish the Social Security Trust Fund….

Peter Navarro

Penn Wharton's tax, immigration and Social Security simulators provide access to fact-based information that allows people to decide for themselves what initiatives are best for the country's future.

Benjamin J. Brandt - Wealth Management

If inflation happens, whether Social Security recognizes it or not, you'll have to increase retirement income. It's not coming from your pension or from Social Security. It's coming from your investment portfolio.

Nancy Altman

Women disproportionately rely on Social Security in retirement.

Roberta Eckert

Women frequently claim Social Security early when their older spouses retire instead of waiting to maximize their benefits.

Nancy Altman

Hillary Clinton and Donald Trump have now debated for three hours, and no moderator has yet asked them about Social Security. This is an extreme disservice because the Democratic and Republican parties have very different positions.

Linn Freedman - Robinson & Cole

If no financial information or Social Security numbers are involved, then most state laws would not require notification and credit monitoring would not be applicable.

Allan Roth

The best annuity on the market to protect against outliving your money is to delay taking Social Security payments.

Donald J. Trump

The key to preserving Social Security ... is to have an economy that is robust and growing.

Tim Steffen - Robert W. Baird & Co.

What it tells me is that maybe they have a nice pension and Social Security benefits, so they may never need to use this money. Required withdrawals get bigger as [time] goes on, so it's probably income that they are less likely to need.

Donald J. Trump

Paul wants to knock out Social Security, knock it way down, wants to knock Medicare way down. These people have been making their payments their whole lives, I want to keep Social Security intact.

Maya Rockeymoore

We often talk about Social Security reform in the context of retirement. The fact of the matter is that skews our understanding of who the program serves. Social Security serves people of all ages, from birth to death – and the number of dependent children is too often ignored.

Maya Rockeymoore

Policymakers should understand that this is an important program for vulnerable people across the age spectrum. So when people argue that Social Security should be cut, our counter is that the data shows that would be devastating for our country - it needs to be expanded.

Ben Tobias

At that point, nobody thought Social Security would be around. Today, when we're talking to [wealthy] clients, for people who are 55 and older, we factor in Social Security as the laws are right now. With [wealthy] clients under 55, we talk about it, but more in the way of 'It'll be gravy if it's there, but let's not count on it.

Ben Tobias

It's important to look at your different options with Social Security, because there are choices to be made that have long-term effects.

Kevin McGarry - Nationwide

A lot of this is due to the fact that [most] advisors wish they had more information about Social Security rules and regulations. Most advisors don't have [extensive] knowledge about it, so they don't it bring up to their clients.

Max Richtman

Seniors continue to see their modest Social Security benefits eaten away by growing health care costs.

Michael Khalsa

I found it very, very easy to get my N.I.E and my Social Security number, we had a translator, but it was still very simple. What's concerning for me is that it might be a more difficult process if the Brexit goes ahead, if we actually leave the EU.

Frank van Lenthe

Work and marriage offer, or at least increase, the possibility of financial and social security. Losing support from a partner, or the security of a job, may cause stress and result in unhealthy behaviors.

Janet A. Stanzak

Medicare premiums [for parts B and D] are the most consistently withheld payments on Social Security.

Clark Randall - Nationwide

If you're working, you absolutely should think long and hard before you take Social Security. It's very punitive if you're making any money at all.

Alma Telibecirevic

I have to do my paperwork: my social security number, finish things about my bank account, I will also have to do my driving license. I know it will take time for me to get to know people, show what I am doing, to make connections. But I am curious about this and I'm looking forward to that.

James Lange

Make sure that the amount is about half of the worker's benefit and the Social Security number shown is the worker's Social Security number. If something isn't right, it should be corrected without delay.

Stamatis Giannisis - Euronews

Public sector employees aren't the only ones reacting to social security reforms. Similar objections are voiced by those working in the private sector. And they both threaten to crank up their protests to the maximum once the pensions bill to be agreed with the country's creditors is presented to parliament.

Alicia Munnell

I'm absolutely convinced that Social Security is not an excessively generous program. It would be impossible to summon a panel of working people who felt like they were getting just what they needed from it.

Bernie Sanders

Let me give you an idea of how corrupt this system is. The leader of Goldman Sachs is a billionaire who comes to Congress and tells us we should cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid. Secretary Clinton, and you're not the only one, I don't mean to just point the finger at you, you've received over $600, 000 in speaking fees from Goldman Sachs in one year.

Roger Hickey

If you had a universal health care plan people wouldn't have to pay premiums. They would gain far more than they would shell out in taxes. Social Security wouldn't have existed if FDR had said, I'm not going to raise anyone's taxes.

Liza Gold

The stigma associated with mental illness and the erroneous belief that those with mental illness are inherently violent can only be reinforced by equating psychiatric disability and competence to manage one's finances as determined by the Social Security Administration with a mandate to release this status to the NICS background check system.

Stamatis Giannisis - Euronews

In spite of the slim majority the SYRIZA led coalition government had a relatively quite night in parliament as it successfully managed to pass the 2016 budget through. There's no guarantee however, that this will be repeated in a few weeks time when further austerity legislation including a bill on the reform on social security with substantial pension slashes will be presented to the Greek national assembly.

Louka T. Katseli

The external debt problem of Greece was transformed into a Greek private debt problem, with most families not being able to pay their taxes, pay social security contributions, pay mortgage loans,etc. That's why I thought as an economist that this was not really the appropriate programme for Greece.

Eduardo Requejo

They are dead, because you cannot go to a bank and ask for credit. They tell you 'no, you have a social security debt.' Of course we have debts, but it is not our fault.

Evangelos Fragoulis

As state-provided healthcare in Greece is associated with one's work status, a massive wave of around two million people losing their jobs meant they lost their social security.

Viviane Reding

What the people who come to work bring to the taxation and social security is much more than they take out.

Viviane Reding

The free movement and supposed invasion by the people who want to take advantage of the social security and health is an invention of politicians who like to have populist movements in order to win in elections. I'm mostly frustrated about the political leaders (of the UK). What is leadership if you just try with political movements and political speeches to gain votes? You are destroying the future of your people, actually.

Viviane Reding

And those who take out of social security are much more the [UK] nationals than the European Union citizens, who take advantage of the free movement of people.

Marco Florijn

They shouldn't be given social security, they should be sent back, because they have to look for a job themselves, we are not their parents.

Dalia Dragan

Neither my husband nor I ever registered with social security or the job office. This affects us both. We've both lost our jobs. We'd like to go back to Romania but we've been paying for a house here for nine years and our son is in school here, completely settled in, since he was born here. So, for the moment, we're fighting to stay.

Frank-Jürgen Weise

Unemployment declined again in March. Employment and social security contributions are increasing. The demand for workers continues to rise and is at a high level.

Frank-Jürgen Weise

Employment and social security contributions are increasing and the demand for workers has increased slightly. The prospects for unemployed people improve.

Bernie Meyerson - International Business Machines

Imagine what Social Security would be like if you had to collect 30, 40 million pieces of paper and track them. It's physically impossible. So IBM was challenged. We actually have systems that sort punch cards, that store all the data about a person on a card which can then be sorted automatically by a machine at very high speed. That's a game changer.

Licino Guedes

If the employee had to pay more toward social security and I paid less, the savings for me would still not amount to enough to hire another employee, so it wouldn't work.

Nancy Pelosi

Another reason to support this bill – even though there are plenty of reasons not to – is that it stops cuts in social security, Medicare and Medicaid. This is the most important assignment given to the Democratic leadership going to the table, to make sure there are no cuts in benefits, in Medicare and Medicaid and Social Security – that was achieved.

Luc Cortebeeck

There have to be more job opportunities. It is possible with a greener economy. Don't touch social security. Go for more job opportunities.

Françoise Grossetête

Until now, it's only emergency care. For example if a tourist is in a European Union member state or students move because of Erasmus can they benefit from social security rules, which allow for reimbursement in emergency cases. But this doesn't involve other care you may need sometime in your life.

Hanaa Edwar

Our national budget is always spent on security and defence, not on social security. But we have 1.5 million widows, we have 3 million orphans, 10% of our population are disabled; we have displaced people who have nothing. And at the same time you find a lot of corruption in our apparatus. Not only should we speak about terrorism in Iraq. Terror in Iraq it is one thing; but when we speak about corruption, corruption also is the other side of the terror.

Miriam Vollenbroek

There is no problem with acceptability by patients and therapists. There is also no problem with existing technology. But it is really an organisational change. So the only short-term problem is the financial aspect, at least here in the Netherlands; how our Social Security system is going to reimburse this kind of treatment: that could maybe take a long time.

Barack Obama

This won't apply to the benefits folks get through Social Security, Medicaid or Medicare. And it won't apply to our national security including benefits for veterans. But it will apply to all other discretionary government programmes.

Frank-Jürgen Weise

Jobs paying into the social security system and overall employment increased considerably and the demand for workers continued to increase.

Lilian Thuram

It isn't football that is the problem. It is political choices. And yes, I think citizens should question their governments. And saying, Look yes, football is fine but perhaps other things are more important. Like constructing schools, hospitals, trying to establish the best social security cover possible for everyone. And yes, they are right actually.

Harry M. Reid

We're willing to make difficult concessions as part of a balanced comprehensive agreement but will not agree to cut social security benefits as part of a small or short-term agreement, especially if that agreement gives more handouts to the rich.
