Fallacies of the New Social Security Executive Order

The wild reduced payments claims are not there and probably go negative with the increased processing costs and lawsuits.

Goal: Cut welfare spending

Reality: Huge hidden costs & swollen Federal bureaucracy
Net: Cost $20,000 more than payments per recipient

The numbers don’t add up

The fallacy

They ignore the cost to the government of doing so

Increased costs for the government

Beware rose-colored glasses

The real numbers

Net = Total Savings - Recipient Cost * Frequency Factor

Total LOSS of $20,000 per recipient
