Be heard

To the Editor:

Instead of Congress and the Senate cutting Social Security and Medicare, why not cut their benefits first before they go after the elderly and disabled in this good country.

Why not cut their pork as well as their free retirement and health benefits? That would make it seem as if they really care about Americans, not just themselves.

Also, if they act as if they care about constituents, maybe it will help them in future races, but if they keep cutting important things such as Social Security and Medicare, it won’t be long before all third parties start getting more and more votes.

They are the ones we chose to take care of us, American citizens, but so far they are getting a big “F” in that position.

If you feel the same as I do, then write your Congress and Senate person and tell them. They won’t know unless we all call or write to tell them what we, their constituents, want.

They will destroy our Social Security and Medicare before you can blink an eye. It is time we all stand up and are heard, otherwise all will be lost.
