1960s protest

“Marco Rubio, Shame On You” Senior Citizens Respond to Rubio Plan to Pay for Family Leave With Social Security

America’s retired people are visiting Congressional offices, protesting at town meetings, calling talk radio, and using social media to make their voices known. Thousands of Senior Citizens have contacted The Seniors Center in recent weeks.

They’re upset — America’s retired people are outraged — by Senator Marco Rubio’s plan to pay for parental leave for young families with proceeds from the Social Security Trust Fund

Today’s Senior Citizens have been activists their whole lives.  In their work places, their homes, and their schools, they created positive social change.  Fifty years ago, the Baby Boom generation took to the streets to fight for peace and justice. Today, they’re reaching retirement and they’re fighting again — this time their cause is a little but more personal but no less important.

Some of their comments follow:

“They just want to give more money to the rich.” – Victoria H.

Already our Social Security has been stolen from and then they tell us it’s going broke!” – Patti R., Annapolis, Maryland

“Mr. President, please stop people from taking money from Social Security we worked and put into Social Security until retirement now we need our Social Security.” – Kathy M.

“There is no trust fund. Just treasury bonds that the government lacks the funds to pay. That’s the problem. It’s costing more money than is coming into the program. That’s why everyone is in panic mode. We need to generate funds so go back to a tried & proven way. Expand the Social Security wage cap from $128,400 to $200,000. Then there’d be funds to give every recipient receiving less than $1200 a month a raise. Keep recipients above the poverty level.” – Linda M., Arab, Alabama

For any government official who thinks it’s theirs to redistribute elsewhere is a greedy communist pig. Take your own pig money, out of your own pig pocket and donate it to your pig projects. Too many politicians have already dipped in the Social Security fund for their personal needs with an IOU. Honoring their debts with repayment hasn’t worked.

Seniors, start using your f*** brains and stop sending thieves, liars, demigods, narcissist, sociopaths into office. When will seniors learn to stop believing what they’re told? When will seniors start actually researching these bums? I’m a senior and I’m f** tired of being embarrassed by the moronic, party line voting, brain dead zombies. I know you’re afraid to lose anything, but grow a pair, stop being lead around by your f*** noses! You’re selling the entire world to the very same people who took the money for their own, rather than allow us to have a cost of living increase. These dirty fuckers get free medical, free dental, free pension, free life insurance, free secret service body guards, they can’t be arrested for insider trading. Just tell me why you keep putting the very tickets that want us all dead.

I eat out on gift cards given me otherwise I cook at home and I’m a good cook and can make something out of practically nothing. Please know I’m happy most all day everyday for my life with good health and a cat and a roof over my head and nice clothes to wear and even a car that runs quite well. I’m grateful that God supplies all my needs one way or another.” – Ann M.
