I am discouraged by some of our people in Washington who want to take Social Security to reduce the deficit.

We haven't received a cost-of-living increase since George Bush was president. They say the cost of living hasn't gone up. I haven't seen anyone who agrees with that.

Now they target the older people with the new health care law. I think everyone who thinks he or she may turn into an older person should watch their representatives and decide at the polls whether you want to keep them or change.
