To President Obama and Members of Congress:
Please do NOT cut Social Security. Increase the Social Security Tax and stop diverting those taxes to other interests.
We are told constantly SS benefits are “entitlement” but the real entitlement is that people are entitled to collect Social Security Benefits because they put money into the program their whole working lives and are entitled to collect their benefits when they become elderly and/or disabled.
The President and Congress act as if we are taking THEIR money. We paid for it in taxes and earned the right to collect Social Security Benefits.
