Social Security

Dear Editor,

It’s been remarked that before President Franklin Roosevelt signed Social Security into law in 1935, about half the elderly U.S. citizens lived in poverty. Less than four-score years later, it’s less than 10 percent.

Attempts to tamper with Social Security should be met with skepticism. The program has assured millions of U.S. Citizens a degree of dignity, including staunchly independent wooden-spoon conservatives.

Conceivably, “Obamacare” may soon be as broadly accepted as Medicare is now.
