Last quote about Social security

Donald J. Trump
The financial cost of everything is so massive, every agency. This is thousands of times bigger, the United States, than the biggest company in the world. The second-largest company in the world is the Defense Department. The third-largest company in the world is Social Security. The fourth-largest – you know, you go down the list. So you know, I really just see the bigness of it all, but also the responsibility. And the human responsibility. You know, the human life that's involved in some of the decisions.feedback

Jeremy Corbyn

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.feedback

Jennifer Rubin

During the presidential campaign, then-candidate Donald Trump said he would replace Obamacare with “something terrific.” In February, he assured us he was putting together something “wonderful.” He would cover “everybody,” he said in an interview with The Post. He once bragged that he was the only GOP candidate to promise not to touch Social Security, Medicare or Medicaid. He never would give particulars, other than to say he would allow insurers to sell plans across state lines (which has never been feasible since it involves the upfront challenge of setting up a network of doctors).feedback

Abe Rogland

It's fascinating to be on set. I made $7,000 for the day. A lot of them cashed out their IRAs already. A lot of them are working now because they have to pay the rent – Social Security is just not making it. It's kind of a frightening time.feedback

Lisa Greenwald

I continue to be struck by the relatively small share of workers who do formal retirement planning. Some of these critical retirement planning steps don't cost workers anything, like estimating Social Security or thinking through what your expenses may be in retirement.feedback

David Freitag - MassMutual Financial Group

Just like you review your 401(k) statements, you need to check your Social Security statements because it is a big part of your retirement income.feedback

Chad Hamilton

A client in her early 60s may have not yet begun to receive Social Security and is living off a portfolio which is providing her income which generates very little in taxes. Take advantage of these years when taxable income is particularly low to reduce the amount held in traditional IRAs.feedback

Jeff Trump

They give me Medicare and Social Security because I'm technically disabled. I would be financially ruined on paper, but not her, and they wouldn't take her stuff. It would make me angry, but I don't feel like our marriage is based on a piece of paper. Divorcing doesn't change your obligation to third parties.feedback

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. Everybody's got to be covered. We're gonna come up with a new plan that's going to be better healthcare for more people at a lesser cost.feedback

Philip Rucker
Drew Harwell

The return shows that Trump paid $36.5 million in income tax, of which about $31 million was in the form of an 'alternative minimum tax,' a supplemental tax designed to cut down on filers with excessive deductions. He also paid about $1.5 million in Medicare and Social Security taxes.feedback

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.feedback

Donald J. Trump

Save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts. Have to do it. I'm not going to cut Social Security like every other Republican. I'm not going to cut Medicare or Medicaid. Every other Republican is going to cut. Even if they wouldn't they don't know what to do because they don't know where they money is. I do. We have a very false economy. … The only thing that is strong is the artificial stock market.feedback

Mary-Ann Stephenson

This reveals that the government's aim to help the 'just about managing' is incompatible with the chancellor's decision to 'continue with our plan'. The 1.8m working families receiving tax credits are the 'just about managing', but rising inflation and a freeze in tax credit rates means a sharper fall in their real-terms income. The chancellor's decision to continue with the decisions of his predecessor to cut social security for these low income families, at the same time as cutting taxes, is effectively a transfer from the purses of poorer women into the wallets of richer men.feedback

Mark Meadows

He did talk about saving Medicare and Social Security, and as someone who was on the campaign trail with him in November, it was really about making sure that people who were getting benefits, or about to get benefits, are protected.feedback

Mick Mulvaney

Clearly, you can help fix and solve Medicaid as part of this larger Obamacare replacement, right, that the two things are tied together. So if we get Obamacare replacement right, it might also allow us to fix Medicaid. I don't think you're going to see this President have any interest in raising the retirement age anytime soon. But we need to address things like Social Security Disability, which you and I both know is one of the fastest growing and probably one of the most abused mandatory programs in the country.feedback

Torsten Bell

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.feedback

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.feedback

Joe Tomlinson

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Debbie Stabenow

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

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.feedback

Charles Blahous

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Donald J. Trump

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

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.feedback

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?feedback

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?feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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….feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Nancy Altman

Women disproportionately rely on Social Security in retirement.feedback

Roberta Eckert

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

Allan Roth

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

Donald J. Trump

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Max Richtman

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

Janet A. Stanzak

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Viviane Reding

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

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

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.feedback

Frank-Jürgen Weise

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

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.feedback

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.feedback
