    how Reagan & the gop fixed social security

    Reagan a conservative... please.... We’ve never had a real conservative in the White House. Just look at Social Security... beginning in 1984, under President Reagan, Soc Sec benefits became taxable... that was in addition to raising the contribution rates & extending retirement age... then the first Prez Bush further increased the amounts subject to taxation... and guess what... the Soc sec Trust Fund is still going insolvent... a real conservative would have insisted on private savings accounts or at least a law requiring the Trust Fund to operate on a fiscally sound basis... instead, our so-called conservative presidents go for higher taxes, less benefits & insolvency. Unbelievable.
