We have paid into these programs for our entire working lives and deserve to reap the benefits that we are due.
Don’t buy their nonsense! These programs are not ‘entitlements’, but are programs that we are entitled to! Most of the problems with Social Security are because Congress “borrowed” trillions of dollars in IOU’s from our Social Security and Medicare, with no apparent plan to pay it back.
The 2017 tax cut for the rich means that these IOU’s will be even more difficult to pay back to ‘our’ Social Security, unless we have a Senator that will actually fight to protect our money.
