So we should choke hold folks, and small businesses with spending and tax increases with non producing government jobs to get us out of a recession? I may not have the financial background you do, but this doesn't make much sense to me.
Just because the trust fund will receive the interest payments/repayments for the scheduled debt that is owed, there is no guarantee that S.S. recipients will receive 100% of their scheduled payments. If it goes this way, something like 70% of the nominal payments would most likely be the result.
So on august 2nd, folks will get about 70% if no deal is passed?
