If you believe the government gives a rip, you're woefully deluded. The politicians are trying to figure out ways to cut Social Security benefits, though the almost all recipients paid the premiums all their working lives.

So are you saying that the democrats will fix the problem and give seniors more money?

---- the democrats will fix the problem and give seniors more money? ....

not sure of that either.... but It's a SURE bet that the R's would default on SOC SEC if they could

Why? If they did that they would get few senior votes. And since it's all about staying in power why would they throw away those votes?

[-] 1 points by BradB (2693) from Washington, DC 2 years ago

yes... you would think that should be the case.... but today it seems more voters (all.. not just seniors) ...don't care or want to know about the facts... they simply want the tv to tell them who to vote for....

Thanks for posting this. It just is not right. Imagine the history that these people have lived through. The things that they have done and experienced. Then look at how they are treated. It is very sad.

Thanks. It is very sad.
