Gingrich: 'Democrats would raise your Social Security tax by 19%'

February 23, 2020 / 1.1K views

Newt Gingrich is going on one of his classic rants about Democrats. He's calling them out and says it's not just "The Squad" who to watch out for, but 206 Democrats who "signed on" and would raise our Social Security tax by 19%

At the time, there is no 19% increase and this is Newt Gingrich's speculation and narrative. However, he may not be wrong. There are a lot of Democrats who like raising taxes to pay for things instead of reorganizing the current flow of tax money to be better spent.

It's easier for Democrats to raise taxes instead of holding people and programs accountable and making sure the tax money isn't wasted on things like...  I dunno... the Department of Education which does absolutely nothing for education on a local level and really, I have no idea why that department exists at all.

Education is a local level issue for districts and state, not the country.

But that ties right back into what Newt is saying - it's a lot easier to raise taxes than it is to pinpoint the spending issues and fix them.

Is Joe Biden fit to be president?
