To the editor:
Millions of taxpayers paid billions of dollars for decades into unemployment insurance and Social Security benefits. Many worked for years without collecting a penny from either program because they died at a young age, were never laid off or downsized or had a job shipped overseas. Let no one “refudiate” the facts that both of these safety nets have “hemorrhoidged.” Those monies have disappeared and not a member of Congress will explain why or how.
Have these dollars been morphed into lifelong retirement and health care benefits for former public servants? One does not have to be a rocket surgeon to understand that politicians should not be allowed to pass legislation that does not apply to everyone.
