Social Security can still make full payments until 2034, and Medicare's reserve are will out by 2026. This I find quite troubling.
I'm 69 years old and my wife is 65, we both collect Social Security. I'm working part-time to supplement what we get. It would be a hardship and a struggle to have benefits reduced.
In the last three years, I have had four operations due to an aggressive cancer and have depended on Medicare benefits.
As a senior citizen, I call on Congress to find solutions to keep these programs going. Senior citizens across this great nation have worked all their lives to make this nation what it is today and demand to be given our rightful due.
To not do so would be insult to all senior citizens and a national disgrace.
