Save Social Security And Medicare

To be delivered to President Donald Trump, The United States House of Representatives, and The United States Senate

Petition Statement

Americans have paid into Social Security and Medicare since the days of Franklin D. Roosevelt. It is not an entitlement! It is a system Americans have paid into and expect a good return on their investment. We have come to learn Social Security has in excess of 2.7 trillion dollars of reserve enough to last for 25 years. The people of the United States of America expect these hard earned benefits to continue without being cut in any way and to receive regular raises through cost of living allowances.
There are currently 11,313 signatures. NEW goal - We need 15,000 signatures!

Petition Background

1. We expect social security and medicare to continue without any cuts in benefits or services.
2. We expect our lawmakers to not put out negative press releases about the social security system we have invested in our entire adult lives.
3. If there are cuts to made let them come from those who are prospering not those living check to check.
4. We expect our President and Congress to treat our retirement system (social security and medicare) with the same respect they treat their OWN retirement funds.
5. We expect our elected officials not to use something we have PAID our way in as a bully pulpit for their own political motives or ambitions.
