  •  "Keeping our promises" (1+ / 0-)

    That theme seems to be common among candidates in several states.  It may be designed to reach those who are familiar with the "promise keepers" organization.  What I am worried about is the issue of whether they will stop making promises to the younger generation.  They may protect benefits for everyone over 50, but people age 49 have paid in for more than 25 years.  The younger generation needs to have Social Security even more than current generations because pension plans have become almost nonexistent in the private sector.
