The Social Security Trust Fund is empty, filled only with useless IOU’s, and senior citizens that have been forced to pay into Social Security for 50-60 years are the true victims. The Social Security Trust Fund that was supposed to have saved retirement for generations of seniors has been raided by the very people that were supposed to protect it. There is only one way to truly protect Social Security and hold firm on a promise that the U.S. Government made to its citizens, which is to create a lock box for the Social Security Trust Fund.
That is exactly why the National Seniors Council recently kicked off a letter campaign urging members of the Senate to cosponsor Senator David Vitter’s Lock Box Act of 2013, S. 110. “Everyone knows that approximately 2.6 trillion dollars has been raided by both sides of the aisle in Congress, but the finger pointing must stop today,” states National Director Rob Crone. “The only true way to build back a surplus in funding is to protect tax-payers money once and for all by creating a Social Security Lock Box.”
The time to start repairing a once thriving system is upon us, and the members and supporters of the National Seniors Council are clamoring for some sort of assurance that their Social Security benefits are safe. “It’s really our members that drive our program, and they are adamant that the time for change is now,” explains Crone, “the politicians on Capitol Hill have been pilfering seniors money for far to long, and it must stop in 2014.”
The National Seniors Council has launched a new petition drive demanding representatives in Congress stand up and protect senior citizens. Your petition tells your representative to pledge to protect you from the war on seniors being waged by the Obama Administration.
Petitions are racing in from across the country and it is clear, seniors will not allow the Obama Administration to so brazenly attack Social Security. In order to make sure Congress is on our side, your petition is imperative. All of our supporters are called upon to do their part, sign their petitions and hold their representatives accountable.
The National Seniors Council is dedicated to protecting all that you have earned. Unfortunately, the current administration is trying to take it away from you.
The National Seniors Council represented its supporters at a Congressional hearing dedicated to the issue of the changing retirement landscape for Baby Boomers. The hearing was held by the Senate Special Committee on Aging. Sadly, more Americans are retiring today with less money coming in and more going out to pay off medical bills, debt and so forth.
The National Seniors Council (NSC) today released the results of its 2013 Medicare survey. This non-scientific survey gauges how important Medicare is for each of NSC's 97,97I supporters and whether they would find it acceptable to cut Medicare for senior citizens.
The responses from National Seniors Council supporters indisputably show that seniors do not want Medicare cut in any, shape, or form" explains NSC Supporter Relations Coordinator Sean Ferritor. "seniors deserve fair treatment, the treatment promised by the U.S- government."
