Letters to the Editor

Letter: Social Security

As a senior citizen, I’m amazed to always read in the newspapers that Social Security is about to run out of funds. Never does it give the real reason why. The Aug. 10 paper says “Congress hasn’t been able to get much done,” when Congress is our biggest problem. They have illegally stolen billions of dollars from the Social Security trust fund to pay other bills. They had no right to do that. Those funds are not government funds. They are funds paid by hardworking Americans for all their working years.

Raising the age several years for eligibility isn’t fair either. Making the thieves put back that money from their own pockets just may get their attention as to the wrong they are doing. Who authorized this thievery anyway?
