Congress: Cutting Social Security isn’t an acceptable Budget Fix!

(Letters to Editor)

For many older Americans, every dollar of their social Security retirement is absolutely critical.

But right now, Congress is threatening to use huge cuts to Social Security and Medicare as a means to address the sequester issues they caused!

That’s not a real solution. It’s not fair to the Americans who have paid into the system their entire lives, only to see their benefits cut to fix Congress’s budget woes.

It’s absolutely vital that we let Congress know: and changes to Social Security -an off-budget, self-financed program- must be done separately and carefully, not for purposes of reducing the federal budget deficit or as a bargaining chip for other government spending.

Send a message to your representative today: Don’t cut Social Security to makeup for their budget shortfalls!
