Letters to the Editor

Letter: Republicans

Why do the Republicans dislike the senior citizens and middle class so much? The seniors are dying off, but the middle class are keeping our country going. With all the jobs going overseas there aren’t enough people paying into Social Security. And yet, all of the foreigners that come to our country get on Social Security, retire and return home, and take their Social Security with them. We have all worked hard and paid into Social Security and Medicare all our lives.

I know our politicians don’t have to worry about their health care or pensions. I certainly don’t understand why Gov. Butch Otter was voted in for another term.

If you are a retired federal employee, you had better join NARFE to help protect your benefits.
