David Riordan is being led down a false trail. You should always check the facts before believing things from calls or mail you receive.

You are entitled to Social Security, and it is not welfare. If you remember, it was the Democrats who initiated it. It is here to stay unless the Republicans take it away.

The American Federation for Seniors wants you to back Ted Cruz, a Tea Party Republican who shut down the government, tried to have us default on our bills and would take your Social Security away in a minute if he could.

Don’t believe anything unless you thoroughly check it out with facts. I do, and I am amazed at the scare tactics and lies that are put out.

Facts are the only thing that counts. Not the media or even politicians. Be aware, focused and find the truth.
