So­cial Se­cu­rity

Austin American-Statesman - - OPINION -

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
