This Social Security time bomb will hurt

Morro Bay



As a conservative Republican and Christian, and also a disabled middle-aged man, I am concerned about Social Security being cut under Mitt Romney’s plan to reduce the budget deficit. The percentage of disabled people in percentage is I believe a large number like 30 percent to 40 percent approximately or “guesstimation.”

If we have earned Social Security, paid into with it with the taxes on our paychecks, why should it be taken away from the very needy or poor people who are less than middle class in the first place? Once set, this time bomb will go off without warning, without paying attention to the disaster that waits with the disabled.
