David Riordan is being led down a false trail. You should always check the facts before believing things from calls or mail you receive.
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.
The last months of institutional turmoil in Congress have included sequestration, a government shutdown and a near default on our debt. My vote, in favor of the bipartisan compromise to re-open the government and to prevent default on our monetary obligations, was necessary to make certain t…
INDIANAPOLIS | Count U.S. Rep. Todd Rokita among Republicans who -- contrary to nearly every economist -- believes it would be a good thing in the long run if the United States defaults on its national debt Thursday.
I have voted more than two dozen times to repeal, defund and strip provisions from Obamacare. It is a principle I share with all Republicans, and I will continue to support these efforts. I want the result to be victory, which is why I have concerns with a push by some to shut down the government.
Talk about kicking someone when she’s down: A woman who lost her job when the AJ Wright distribution center in South Bend shut down was told her unemployment benefits will be trimmed by more than 10 percent, thanks to the mindless federal budget cut known as the “sequester.” Meanwhile, major…
Labor Day is a celebration of the incredible contributions of America’s working people. Through sweat, sacrifice and innovation, workers built this great state and nation. And we continue to make it work every day.
MERRILLVILLE | A free seminar about the role of Social Security in retirement is scheduled for 5 p.m. Tuesday at Avalon Manor, 3550 E. Lincoln Highway.
The almost three decades in Congress obviously are beginning to take a heavy mental toll on Pete Visclosky based on his comments this week.
If you want my input, take Social Security off the government's hands. Put Social Security back the way President Franklin Roosevelt meant it to be -- a retirement plan for working people who paid into it.
Every day of the year, Americans across the nation remember friends and family members who have served and sacrificed for their country. Memorial Day is a day when we all come together to honor those who have given their lives in the defense of freedom and the principles we hold dear in this…
I am a college math teacher. I stress the importance of math in everyday life, “Math in the News.”
Thomas Markovich and Charles Hosszu are so right. Not enough money for the USS Lincoln, but always enough money for Air Force One to fly the queen and king around.
I can't understand why the Republican Party wants to cut Social Security and Medicare. If the cuts on Medicare are deep enough, with all the deaths, Social Security should start showing a surplus. Maybe then we can cut more taxes on the rich.
I wonder how many in Congress would have their job if common sense were a prerequisite.
The episode of sequestration – the $85 billion in automatic, across-the-board spending cuts that take effect today – reminds us of what happens when legislators cease to legislate.
HAMMOND | A Gary woman is charged with stealing more than $1,000 from the U.S. Social Security Administration.
An entitlement, according to Congress, is anything that’s not paid for.
GARY | A Gary woman accused of taking more than $50,000 in Social Security benefits from children whose mother died was sentenced Tuesday to a year of house arrest.
After reading Bill Krueger’s letter (“Big Business should help fund Social Security,” Feb. 1), I can only wonder where he gets his “facts."
