The Honorable Elizabeth Letchworth, retired US Senate Secretary, wrote this piece today at the GRADE GOV blog. Elizabeth will bring her insider’s insight on today’s continued budget saga taking place on Capitol Hill this evening on my radio show. Join us at 9 pm ET for The ANDREA SHEA KING Show.
President Obama’s budget chief, Jack Lew, took to his White House blog in early March of 2011 to repeat his claim that the Social Security trust fund is solvent through 2037. This means that the money we put into SS each week from our pay checks is being put in the Social Security lock-box for safe keeping.
POTUS is saying now that he may not be able to write the SS checks that are due to our seniors after Aug. 2 if the Debt limit isn’t increased. Obviously he must be robbing the Social Security trust fund since he is claiming their isn’t any money to write the checks. If he is taking the SS money out of the fund, then he is stealing from our elderly. That money is put in a lock box each time it is taken from our checks. It isn’t supposed to be used for anything but writting the SS checks to our seniors. After all, Jack Lew said they system was flush or “solvent” thru 2037.
HUM…………….either POTUS be trying to scare our seniors or he is stealing from our seniors………… Which one is it? Shame on you Mr. President!
GradeGov is where you go to write directly to any member of the US House or Senate to tell them what you think. And you can be assured that your email will go into their office, NOT an auto-reply computer.
You can also grade them on their performance; their adherence to the Constitution; their vote on the debt limit and budget, or anything else that’s on your mind.
