Social Security is a legal contract with the people It is the responsibility of government to uphold it's part of that contract. Mishandling of funds does not excuse them from their responsibilities. They have known for forty years the social security trust fund would not meet the future demands. We elect them to take care of business on our behalf. The younger generation must pay in more now to meet their future needs. Congress has failed in their fiscal duties. Now they want senior citizens to bear the burden. I don't think so. Reprehensible!!
