I received a solicitation for money from your organization. In the past I have supported you but this time I must decline. I am on Social Security and soon will qualify for Medicare. I have paid into the plans for both all my working life with the anticipation of a return at the time of my retirement. Now you are negotiating with our homegrown Taliban, the GOP to reduce the benefits of these programs for no good reason. Sure you say you are working to strengthen the programs but you know that's a lie and so does the rest of America. So be it. However as long as you are planning to take earned benefits away from me, I must withhold such funds as I can give to you. I will need it to pay for your "improvements". And I do wish I was in a position to slash your retirement benefits and reduce your healthcare but that is not the way the world turns. I do hope you sleep poorly at night, it is no more than you deserve.

As you seek an end to Republican budget terrorism, I ask you not to be so eager to screw the current and future seniors citizens. The Chained CPI you seek is nothing less than stealing the earned benefits they worked for all their lives. As the Christian you have worked so hard to prove you are, what better proof could you offer than to follow the words of Jesus found in Matthew 25:40 "whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me". When the Republicans tell you NO, you should take Social Security and Medicare off the table and tell them they lost any chance of diminishing that which protects the least of our citizens. You are secure for the rest of your days, help the rest of America keep what little security they have. It is what a real man would do.
