Preserve Social Security

I am on Social Security, and I am speaking out for Social Security. The right thing to do is to protect the Social Security program. Those of us who have worked hard all of our lives should not have Social Security cut by right-wing Republicans! To cut Social Security is a radical, not a conservative, thing to do, in my opinion.

Social Security is a retirement income solution. Earned benefits need to be protected and expanded because of the increase in the cost of living!

Right now I have more words to offer than money. We have a retirement security crisis. Let’s work together to protect Social Security which is independently funded by our own payroll taxes.

The bottom line is that those who have paid into the Social Security program and paid payroll taxes are entitled to the benefits of Social Security.
