I don’t understand why the folks who are set to retire in the next 10 years are not up in arms over the good possibility that we will not receive any — or a very limited amount — of our retirement benefits from the Social Security Administration that we have paid into for 40 to 50 years.
I don’t like what is happening with our government — the debt, the raiding of Social Security monies, the bailouts of companies that needed to fold because they defrauded investors, etc.
This issue should be at the forefront for all of us who hope to retire. It should be at the forefront of all of the newspapers, magazines and, most of all, Congress. If it is not addressed, a lot of the middle class might be on the public dole when it retires.
Maybe Barack Obama’s health care will take care of us, but I doubt it. nancy goodMan
