Social Security

I was glad (and proud, too) to read this essay on Social Security from one of my State Senators, Bernie Sanders.  It starts with:

Social Security is the most successful social program in American history. It shouldn't be privatized; its benefits shouldn't be cut; and the retirement age shouldn't be raised.

And it just gets better from there.  Recommended reading.

Oh how I wish I could vote for him. What a breath of fresh air. If he is single or up for adoption, I've got first dibs.
Excellent article and makes me realize I need to start emailing my congressmen and women.
Thanks Olga.

This guy is a treasure. I wish we had him for Colorado. Thanks for sharing.

Bernie is yours? I wish he was ours. Of course, in Georgia, all we have is John Lewis and Jimmy Carter. Come to think of it, that's not too bad especially since I live in the South.

One of Vermont's biggest assets. We need more Bernies around the nation.

I love Bernie Sanders. We need to clone him!
