humongous sinkhole) and our government hasn't saved a dime to fill it in. Therefore, I think I may be willing to take whatever control I can over my
future savings. As a taxpayer, I am a bit upset about how well our government has managed our money we pay. They call a plan Social Security and
then dig a 28 trillion dollar hole.
On the bright side at least there is discussion on the topic now. I am not in favor of raising my taxes 2% to fix the Social Security system like the
democrats are proposing. My 2% savings of my own wages will be a lot more I believe than the government plans on paying me back.
What you said: As a taxpayer, I am a bit upset about how well our government has managed our money we pay.
What this means to me:As a taxpayer, I am a very upset about how our government has mis
managed our money.
And if the new senior drug program is ANY indication about how our ogvernment will conduct a social security revamp, we should be verrrrry afraid.
They are claiming if you are 55 and over, nothing willl chnge. We need to see the tiered changes for those 54 and younger. We need to know how soon
these changes will go into effect.
But most of all, We need to tell our congress people
how we feel!
