It cuts taxes for the poor, … Continue reading Analysis of the Republican Tax Plan

Social Security is one of those systems heavily praised by both the left and the right as a system that tremendously helps the elderly and the needy. It was created by FDR, a god amongst modern … Continue reading The Flaws of the US Social Security System and Possible Alternatives
