Just stop spend­ing

The Washington Times Weekly - - Letters To The Editor -

At­ten­tion all Amer­i­can re­tirees and fu­ture re­tirees who hope their So­cial Se­cu­rity checks will keep on keep­ing on: Con­gress­man Ron Paul, the all-Amer­i­can pres­i­den­tial can­di­date, has in­tro­duced the So­cial Se­cu­rity Preser­va­tion Act (H.R. 219), which would im­me­di­ately pro­hibit Congress from raid­ing the So­cial Se­cu­rity Trust Fund. Sim­ply pass­ing this act would re­sult in enough sur­plus funds to pay all So­cial Se­cu­rity ben­e­fits for many decades to come, with­out cut­ting ben­e­fits or rais­ing taxes.

This is typ­i­cal of Ron Paul. He has al­ways guarded your dol­lars. He has never voted for an un­bal­anced bud­get. He has never voted to raise taxes. He has never voted to raise con­gres­sional pay. He has never taken a gov­ern­ment-paid jun­ket. He has never voted to in­crease the power of the Ex­ec­u­tive branch. He does not par­tic­i­pate in the lu­cra­tive con­gres­sional pen­sion pro­gram. He re­turns a por­tion of his an­nual con­gres­sional of­fice bud­get to the U.S. Trea­sury ev­ery year. He is fis­cal san­ity in a sea of dol­lar de­stroy­ers.

Con­tact your con­gress­man to­day (I did) and ask him to sup­port Ron Paul’s H.R. 219. Dono­van Dunn Brock­port, New York
