Thanks for stance on Social Security

January 20, 2014

Bravo and kudos to Congressman John Carney for his Delaware Voice article on Social Security - it was right on the money (no pun intended)!

It is disgraceful that some of our elected officials are even considering taking money from the Social Security Trust Fund since it was created and established with the earnings of millions of people over many decades to help support their golden years.

I totally agree that the system needs tweaking in order to strengthen it and keep it viable for those who continue to contribute to it.  What it does not need are wrong-thinking politicians attempting to steal from it to solve problems that many of them have helped to create.

Thank you, Congressman Carney, for your support of our seniors and your clear and forward thinking to find solutions to this situation.
