An open letter to the U.S. Congress

Payroll tax "holiday" is a disaster

8 so far! Let’s get to 10 signers!

Economists have universally warned thar Trump's executive order permitting a payroll tax holiday, allegedly to help workers during COVID, is disastrous for several reasons. Not only will those workers have the burden of paying the taxes back next year, but the "plan" is a backdoor method of gutting the Social Security system. I am one of your constituents who has been forced to rely almost solely on my Social Security income -- which is MY money that I have paid into since 1974 -- due to an inability to find full-time employment because of my age. (Yes, age discrimination is a real problem in today's workplace.) And there are plenty of people like me in the same boat. I want to know exactly what you plan to do to stop this short sighted, downright stupid scheme hatched by a failed businessman in cognitive decline from going forward and completely wrecking our economy.
