My wife and I live off our SS. It has always been tight financially. Since inflation has worsened we are having a very difficult time makinng ends meet. We are too old to work. I'm 73 and she's 74. Both of us are not in good health. Life has become very frightening.

Just think if the government would pay back the money taken from SS how much bigger our checks would be. 馃

If republicans didn鈥檛 fight against unions people would have pensions. If GQP gets it鈥檚 way there won鈥檛 even be SS. Then what elderly dying in the streets?

I understand. My husband was to retire this year. But, he's still working. We both fear the end of SS. Please - talk to your friends & neighbors. Help them understand the threat from the Right is REAL. We've all seen their plans written in plain English. VOTE!! #SeniorsVOTE

The idea that GOP wants to take the retirement savings we paid into 50 years each is very frightening...Glad @POTUS gave us 5 percent raise this year, compared to measely 1.3 percent during Former Guy

Welcome to the club Gary. We are the same way. Cut back on everything I could think of and still week to week. It鈥檚 the medicine that hurts us. With both of us with heart problems it adds up. And don鈥檛 forget the doctor appointments

We the ppl must demandto know why the Trump Admin gave the rich PPP loans without any oversight and then forgave the loans for most. That money could have been used to give our Seniors a raise to their SS. It was stolen from us.@POTUS

My wife and I are very worried as well. We thought were doing well towards retirement but if the republicans get their way and kill our SS and medicare we will not last long on our nest egg. We would be living on the streets begging for food in very short order.

People that have worked their entire life shouldn't have to worry like this. I hope the GOP will fail at ending SS and medicare.

Inflation will eventually slow as it always does. The larger issue is that multiple Rs have now said they want to substantially cut or get rid of social security. Which is insane.
