It is quite difficult to fathom why some constantly cackle about the need for the demise of Social Security and Medicare, especially when one pays at least $100 each month for health insurance.
Those who can be blamed for this have no heart and half a brain. More than 55 million who depend on this Social Security benefit each month would think twice before denying anyone a pension.
This large amount of those receiving this benefit is becoming a massive volcano waiting to erupt if loud-mouthing doesn't cease.
Past presidents Jimmy Carter and Lyndon Johnson stole the Social Security trust fund and had it placed in the U.S. Treasury. Thus it caused some like pigs at the trough to steal nearly $3 trillion of it.
It is strange that in the early 1930s, a liberal president, Franklin D. Roosevelt, created this insurance for the aged, yet it is now threatened by the same type of people.
To those who have no heart, kindly shut up.
