Why Social Security & Medicare Are NOT in Crisis
Dr. Jack Rasmus Presentation to the Progressive Democrats of
America, San Francisco, February 28, 2013 (36 min 13 sec)
Jack Rasmus exposes the lies perpetrated by Politicians and Media
about the financial state of Social Security and Medicare today. He offers
alternative small tax changes that would instead lower the retirement age,
increase retirement benefits, fully fund Medicare Part B and D, and create a
surplus to pay for Medicare for All (Universal, Single Payer Health Care).
He explains how neither of these programs, nor the country itself, are
'broke' but that trillions of dollars are instead being hoarded by the rich
and corporations, who are trying to make retirees pay for the economic
crisis and deficits they created.
