Currently, the budget cannot afford this action. Wasteful spending must be cut. No walls. No new monuments. Increase minimum wage. Increase COLAs so retirees and Social Security recipients income is above the overtly level of $12,140 annually. Stop the annual increase in healthcare insurance premiums. Retirees’ pensions are reduced to pay this. After 10 years, many will have no benefit; it will only pay insurance costs. It should not work that way.
