Farewell social security in the US? November 17, 2016Posted by WorldbyStorm in Uncategorized.
With a Republican president in the White House and majorities in the Senate and the House, Speaker Paul Ryan has the fuel he needs to enact his “road map,” an expansive plan to roll back the American welfare state, such that it exists.
That such that it exists is crucial. Compared to EU states the social safety net in the UK is extremely partial. And there are road maps already extant for those who would drive through what is left.
Essentially, to replicate for the country what Sam Brownback and Bobby Jindal have done for their respective states. What should we expect? With President Trump’s signature, Ryan will repeal the Affordable Care Act, Dodd-Frank, and much of the legislative legacy of the Obama administration. He will craft and pass a massive package of tax cuts and “tax reform” that will deprive the federal government of revenue and fundamentally change the relationship between it and the American public.
