Thank you. We're 20 years deep into a hell of war on the poor that has torn apart countless families, destroyed lives. The number of Americans in poverty (note: not the same as low-income people) has soared, and the overall life expectancy of the US poor has already fallen to age 60-63.
Not everyone can work (health, etc.) and there aren't jobs for all. The US shut down/shipped out an extraordinary number of jobs since the 1980s, ended actual welfare in the 1990s, and we pretend there are no consequences.
Note, too, that Bill Clinton took the first steps to similarly "reform" Social Security, targeting the disabled. As a result, the disabled had become the fastest-growing group of homeless people by 2000. Finally, Obama was elected, and was able to get benefits restored. As Hillary Clinton prepared for her latest campaign, Dems in Congress kicked off 2015 with voting to virtually end food stamps to the elderly poor and the disabled (cut from $115 per month, down to $10), a clear statement of their priorities and goals.
