The new fight over the debt ceiling is heating up--and the #2 Republican in the Senate just announced that they're coming for our Social Security benefits.

Since Social Security benefits paid out are based upon the funds the receive paid in, this is just like some yo-yo going into your bank (or credit union) and taking funds out of your checking account. I believe it is called theft.

It's strange, seniors have to beg for the money THEY paid in. Getting tired of begging here.

I'm glad to see a lot of groups placing petitions out for this and I'm signing all that come across my line of sight. I thank you for giving me another one to add my name to.

I agree with GGma Sheila, we worked all our lives and played by the rules that were set up, now that we are up in age and retiring suddenly we shouldn't want what we paid into? That we should somehow feel bad that we are now withdrawing our Social Security. That we are told we are lazy and living off of others for doing so? That we should sacrifice some more, give back some more, and on and on it goes.

I'm tired of this message, for it is not only wrong, it's heartless and dangerous. Too many Elders are living in a lot of anxiety over this coming across the airways. The are dealing with age, health conditions, their income is already low so they are trying to figure out how to keep it all going, and now this is being tossed out there to them?

Let me remind you all, that you too will age and be older one day. That the rules that you are living under can't be changed at the twilight of your life. There is no time to change, to revamp, to do otherwise, so those who are younger in Office and are failing to see this you need to stop and think this out, for those who are our age, remember not everyone that is older is in the 1% income category like you. Consider yourselves lucky but do not punish those who had no hand in crashing this economy or removing regulations that were there for our protection. Fix it, but not on the backs of the Elders and Disabled......nor children.

Be men and women of some moral courage and sanity and stop picking the low lying fruit. You know who caused the mess so grow some and stand up to the 1%.....and yes, that might include you and your buddies.

Thanks for the forward Dandelion..signed with pleasure..heard on ABC Radio Australia this morning that the Government is shutting down on Oct 1.......how does this effect you all? The Opposition "blocked supply" back in 1975 here (our equivalent) and we were forced back to the polls.
