Letter to the Editor: Guess who else wants to gut Social Security?

To the Editor:

At the annual World Economic Forum in January it was stated that our country’s current administrative leadership may be looking at cutting entitlements (Medicare and Social Security) toward the end of the year. This is no surprise.

As you know, we’ve had a senator from our very own state who has proclaimed discussing this in secret. And even though the deficit has exploded since the tax cut for the rich, Senate leadership has claimed that the driver of debt is Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid and cuts will need to be made.

I live by the words of Maya Angelo: “When someone shows you who they are, believe them.”

I don’t believe we want leaders of our nation with this line of thinking on Medicare, Social Security and Medicaid.

Very sincerely,

Ann L. Hart
