Walk a mile in se­niors’ shoes be­fore com­plain­ing

The Morning Call - - TOWN SQUARE A PLACE TO BE HEARD -

There was a let­ter re­cently pub­lished in The Morn­ing Call say­ing the se­niors should stop com­plain­ing about taxes. This per­son that wrote this let­ter does not know what it is like to live on So­cial Se­cu­rity and no other in­come.

When I was work­ing, it was tough but we got by. Now that we had to re­tire be­cause of med­i­cal prob­lems, it is a lot harder. My hus­band is on many pre­scrip­tions, and we only get a check once a month. We still have bills to pay and taxes.

Who­ever com­plains about se­niors should have to live on a re­duced in­come, and then we would see who is com­plain­ing. Se­niors do not have the lux­ury of get­ting paid weekly or ev­ery other week.

Peo­ple should not com­plain about se­niors. In the fu­ture they will also be­come se­niors.
