Social Security & Medicare

Recent news articles indicate both of these programs are in very serious trouble. Social Security will pay out more than it takes in by 2016 and Medicare will be insolvent by 2017. Government has known this, but apparently nothing is being done to fix the situation. The President and Congress are doing nothing to protect the welfare of average citizens while dumping trillions of taxpayer’s dollars down the drain on bailouts without adequate knowledge that it will help the economy or adequate controls. Wake up America and demand action by your representatives! The time for action is now, not years from now. If your representative is not willing to take action, maybe they should be booted out of office. The same goes for the President. The members of Congress need to change their self-serving attitudes and represent the American public. This is just another example of government being overpaid with no worries about their own retirement while ignoring their constituents. What does it take for the public to demand action?
