My mother-in-law had a respectable life in her older years because of Medicare and Social Security.

I cannot believe that Congress is planning to cut these programs for the next generation.

Why are my children any less deserving than I am?

We need to see the wealthy taxed at the same rate as the rest of us. I will not stand to see my children cheated of the retirement security they have earned, just to protect the country’s richest 2 percent.
