Unpacking the Campaign Platforms on Social Security - The Sentinel

As the run-up to November 3 Election Day enters its final stages, Social Security continues to take on renewed interest among those yet to vote. There are specific differences between the Democrat and Republican platforms, even though both express an interest in protecting the program for the long term. The differences in policy approaches advocated to-date are receiving more and more scrutiny in the final laps of the race, and some clear examples of these differences can be found in an exchange between candidates for Pennsylvania’s hotly contested 10th Congressional District contest.

As outlined in a post by The Sentinel Investigative Reporter Zack Hoopes on cumberlink.com, the policy differences are striking. From differences on changes to Social Security’s full retirement age to conjecture on the veracity of President Trump’s payroll tax changes, with challenges to the handling of tax exemption for individual retirement arrangements in between, the dialog between these two candidates serve to highlight the fundamental differences between the two major party platforms. Although the article is focused on a specific Congressional District race, it does represent a fairly generic picture of the thinking on Social Security’s near term horizon.
