    I was traveling all day yesterday and did not get a chance to read or comment on yesterday's SS diaries.  Over and over I am reading bioler plate responses and comments from our elected officials regarding proposed changes to SS.  Nearly every one of them wrongly assumes the purpose of SS.

    Words make a difference and the continued use of the word "entitlements" in a perjorative manner plus the now new meme of using SS changes to protect the neediest among us are already having a negative effect on the program. It makes SS appear to be a welfare program.  I will never forgive the President for offering up SS in his "grand giveaway" deals. This could end up being the most tragic thing that has ever happened to the American people.

    This particular diary contains so much valuable information that I will need to read it more than once.  Thank you for your amazing research for this diary.   Tipped and very much recommended.
