ya and then there's those who died a year or two before being eligible to get it!! I think I know more in that category than I know in the one you
I don't see where cutting it is really going to do that much good.
so you take away the social security checks of those approaching retirement age, okay, so well sooner or later many of their bodies are gonna break
down to the point where they aren't gonna be able to work. so who takes care of them? their kids, who who are making near minimum wage and have
tons of college debt? really?
the social service system?? ya right, sure, but well you will still be paying out about as much money only in a different avenue.
ya know go into any hospital and see how many older people there are in there volunteering their time doing various things that the hospital would
have to hire someone to do if they weren't there! so take away their social security income and they more than likely won't be volunteering anymore
because they will need the money!1
you cannot save the country by cutting the benefits that are being given to those who are barely making it on them. we, as a nation will not accept
the problems that would arise out of that kind of proverty. or, are you saying that you would be prepared to let your own mother or father die out in
the cold homeless and starving? of course you wouldn't not if you could avoid it. you'd have them living with you, you'd be pinching pennies
whatever it took!
Many of us have worked our entire lives and paid into that system and well they are counting on it being there when they need it. many have also had
their retirement funds practically wiped clean when the housing market crashed. they are your parent and family members. are you prepared to take
them in and care for them? or are you still living with them after college graduation because well you're college debt is more than you can earn?
