Donald Trump debt proposal a Social Security bombshell

 rkg7005aMotely Fool says Trump's plan to tackle our growing national debt could be surprisingly bad news for seniors.

May 23, 2016 - America has a plethora of growing concerns, but none may loom larger over the long term than our burgeoning national debt, writes Sean Williams in the popular website for investment advice, The Motely Fool.

Williams points out that our national debt is quickly approaching $19.3 trillion dollars, according to USDebtClock.org.

"In 2016, based on the approved federal budget, some $283 billion dollars was set aside just to pay net interest on our outstanding debt. Presumably, if our outstanding debt continues to grow, other federal programs that are in need of funding could suffer," says Williams.

"Last week, Donald Trump, the Republican Party's presumptive nominee for president, offered up his solution on how to fix the United States' growing national debt."

"Unfortunately," says Williams, "it's a plan that could prove devastating for seniors."

He sees a "veritable laundry list of problems" associated with the Trump proposal.
