Chris Rothfuss on Social Security
A: Yes. There is no reasonable justification for this disparity.
A: I support 'real' cost of living adjustments and do not have any confidence in our current COLA system. CPI-E would certainly be a fairer COLA than CPI-W for seniors receiving Social Security.
A: Reestablish the social security trust fund and loan out the surplus funds at fair market value; raise the $102,000 taxable ceiling and then index the new ceiling to inflation or a relevant COLA; and increase the Full Retirement Age for individuals born after 1960... set a sliding scale now to compensate for longer life expectancies.
A: Oppose. I support overhauling the current federal social security system to keep it solvent. This should include re-establishing the social security trust fund and loaning out the surplus funds at fair market value; raising the $102,000 taxable ceiling and then indexing the new ceiling to inflation or a relevant COLA; and increasing the Full Retirement Age for individuals born after 1960to compensate for longer life expectancies.
