i agree that folks presently on ss and medicare need to be protected, but the present course is not substainable !!<quoted text> I am an Independent and vote for who I think will do a good job working for the people he or she represents. I know Scott Brown has done a lot fo people of his State and I believe he is a good man. However, after I saw what the Republicans wanted to do to Socical Security and Medicare I am totally turned off by any Republican and I think the country is with me, for them to try and kill future raises to SS and medical help to the needy shows me they are only out for more money in their pockets at the expense of the needy, we don't want that!
lots of folks that retired at 65 will live into there 90's
these days, something that was almost unheard of 20 years ago.
i hold both parties responsible for constantly kicking the
can down the road. we need a leader who has the stones to
say either raise the retirement age or pay a LOT more into
the ss fund !!!
