I worked for 50 years and paid into SS all those years. The money I paid in should be waiting for me to reclaim it now that I am 65. I do not like the fact that President Obama has borrowed from it. That is ours to retire on.

I paid for it all my working life. Inflation never stops because of all the money we spend feeding & supporting people who want to kill us. Why Hell, I am better then them. Put the money in the pockets of people who Love & serve this country............

Seniors struggle to pay for basic needs everyday,
like buying meds or having food.

Every year our money goes less further as prices rise. Social Security increases for seniors have now been denied for THREE years, while major corporations get price increases! Stand up for Seniors!

Now more than ever we need honest compassionate representatives in our government. “quantitative easing” helps money to start flowing into the markets, and Wall Street can profit from all the trading activity. The thing is, however, that the result will be a bubble – stocks are over-valued, and therefore a painful correction becomes inevitable.
When the “Fed” sets interest rates so low, people’s can’t earn a return on their investments, and in the end their savings are eroded by inflation...

When the “Fed” sets interest rates so low, people’s can’t earn a return on their investments, and in the end their savings are eroded by inflation and retirement security is threatened. The reason IRAs aren’t earning any money is because the interest rates have been kept artificially low, so the country can afford to pay all that interest on the debt. We need campaign finance reform now. And Yes don't vote for the candidate who thinks 47% of Americans are lazy.

It's impossible to live on a fixed income that doesn't keep up with the rising cost of living. Just think about one necessity - I'm sure you all know how much the cost of food has gone up recently!

So many seniors have to decide should I eat or take my meds. This is not right in a country such as ours! We have money to send all over the world but so many are of our seniors are hurting so bad!
