We talk about their current status. We talk about Social Security. Have they gone to SSA.gov to obtain their estimated view of their Social Security payments at 62, 66 and 70? Have they started tracking their budget – their expenses vs. their income? Do they have any retirement savings? Do they have ANY PLANS if Social Security should go away tomorrow?
It is always interesting to have this discussion. Most Americans DO NOT have a plan if Social Security should go away. In fact, over 50% of Americans do NOT have a retirement plan nor retirement savings and RELY completely on Social Security AND Medicare for their retirement needs.Today, most people on Social Security are paid between $1000 - $2000 a month. Most have paid into Social Security ALL of their lives. MOST view Social Security as their Retirement Plan, since they have paid into it through their payroll ALL of their working lives. I don’t know of ANY Americans (who have paid into Social Security via their payroll for more than 10 years) who view Social Security as an “Entitlement.”
Over the next 20 years, as the Baby Boomers achieve retirement age, we will have the Highest Rate of American Seniors relying on Social Security as their primary source of income.
What is going to happen if a Republican is elected into office and successfully ENDS Social Security and Medicare? What will happen to the 50% of American Seniors that RELY on Social Security and Medicare as their Sole Source of Sustenance?The ONLY PEOPLE that want to END Social Security are Republicans who CARE NOTHING about our Seniors!
I ask ALL Caring Americans to be ever vigilante and VOW to allow Social Security and Medicare to CARE for our Senior Citizens!! Please Care for your Grandparents through Social Security AND Medicare! They have Paid Into this program ALL of Their Lives!
