I just received letter from the American Federation of Senior Citizens. It seems the U.S. Supreme Court's ruled Social Security is like welfare and the government is not required to pay benefits.

They should get their heads out of the sand. People worked for Social Security. You don't see President Barack Obama talking about welfare adjustments. Why is that if they are both the same? We all know why.
