Reasons To Vote This November: The Fate Of Social Security

Posted by John Kuhnlein | Oct 01, 2020 | 0 Comments

If you or a family member are getting any sort of Social Security benefit, you must vote on November 3, 2020. To be clear, the fate of Social Security is on the ballot this year. How you vote will help determine if the program survives.

All Americans Affected

At the outset, I should note that at some point in their lives, all Americans will get some sort of Social Security disability benefit. Literally, from cradle to grave Social Security is there. But, like any other governmental organization, Social Security is subject to the whims of politicians.

Trump Has Declared War On Social Security

Donald Trump's policies, if allowed to continue, will be ruinous for Social Security. Take just one example. Trump unilaterally ordered the Federal government to

Don't Even Let Them Eat Cake!

stop collecting payroll taxes from its employees. Trump has suggested that, given the chance, he would terminate these payroll taxes completely. Apparently, the president does not know how Social Security benefits are funded. You can read more about this issue here.

It Gets Worse

But, there is more bad news. Every budget that Trump has submitted to Congress has included massive cuts to Social Security. For a pretend billionaire like Trump, money is where the heart resides. Cutting Social Security benefits for widows, children, the disabled, the poor, and the elderly is just a matter of dollars and sense for him. 

No Retirement Benefits? No Disability Benefits? 

If you have been paying into Social Security for decades now, expecting to get a retirement benefit, Trump's plans could bankrupt the entire system before you collect a single dime. If your parents are surviving on Social Security benefits, Trump could take that away and shift the burden of supporting those parents back to you. If you become disabled and have no means to support yourself, you could discover that Trump crashed the entire program and now you are out of options.

You Must Vote

It All Comes Down To You

It really is this simple. You must vote on November 3, 2020. If you don't and you wake up one day to discover Social Security is gone, the fault will not be with some bureaucrat, nor even with Trump. The fault will be your own.

Vote while your vote still matters.

John Kuhnlein

Since 1992, I have been helping the people of Southern Arizona get the benefits they are due. Before devoting all my efforts to assisting people with Social Security disability claims, I also handled such complex lawsuits as medical malpractice and products liability. I brought to my Social Security cases all the skills and attention to detail that I developed in the courtroom. I approach each Social Security disability case as if it were a million-dollar lawsuit. For the people trying to get Social Security benefits, their claim is every bit as important. Because I have personally handled so many Social Security cases, I have refined the skills I need to win your case for you. I have helped people win cases for every kind of ailment from arthritis to valley fever. At present, I am focused on helping those persons with neurological and orthopedic disorders. Because claims for people over age fifty bring additional complications, I particularly seek out those cases to work on. I regularly write about back and spine conditions on my blog. I actively seek out the latest information about orthopedic and neurological disorders to ensure I can represent my clients as effectively as possible. Because of my current focus, I regret that I am not able to take any cases for mental disorders. If you are over age fifty and suffer from any orthopedic or neurological disorder, please contact me at once.
