FDR saw people's homes STOLEN by Bankers after 1929 CRASH

Message 11 of 15

FDR saw homeless 70, 80 and 90-year-olds and said this is wrong. Social Security was designed to make sure no one ever had to face that situation again. FDR NEVER SAID Social Security was not designed as a supplement to other old age pensions/investments. He viewed it as a pension and a floor under which no elderly person should fall. Republicans invented this gimmick line about Social Security not being a Old Age Pension. 

A recent study found that 50% of the American People could NOT COME UP WITH $400 CASH IN AN EMERGENCY. How the hell are they supposed to afford an IRA?

@KidBoy2said SS was never intended to be your pension..it was to supplement it.

True, but does that then mean it's OK for Ryan to be taking it away from us, because it's suppose to be a supplement?.

We worked for it, we deserve it. If you want Ryan to keep yours go for it, a lot of us want our Soc Sec. so we do feel Ryan should leave it alone. He's just never satisfied being rich, it's always more, more ,more, take, take, take.

 

Trouble is The Rep. take, but it's the ones low on the Totem Pole they take from.
