Today I joined with Rep. Ron Paul to co-sponsor the the Senior Citizens' Tax Elimination Act (which repeals all taxes on Social Security benefits) and the Social Security Beneficiaries' Tax Reduction Act (which repeals the 1993 tax increase on Social Security benefits).
To me, It does not make sense to tax income, that has already been earned and taxed. It is the essence of double taxation and makes no sense. Not to mention, in years when Seniors do not get COLAs, eliminating their taxes would be more than the COLA. I am proud to join Rep. Paul in this endeavor. Our seniors have paid taxes on income, paid Social Security taxes for the benefit, and currently shoulder the burden of this Administration's illogical energy policy and government takeover of health care and the higher prices that go with it.
I hope many more join us in this and benefit our greatest generation.
