Don’t let Bush gut Social Security

Dear Editor:President Bush is endangering my retirement and the retirements of millions of Americans by taking the first step in his plan to dismantle Social Security.Recently, White House sources revealed their plan to cut promised benefits to retirees by nearly a third. And these cuts are guaranteed – whether you opt into the Bush plan or not. For those entering the work force today, that means more than a 25 percent cut in the retirement benefits they’re counting on; for their children, it guarantees a 46 percent cut. We can’t stand by and let George W. Bush and the Republicans cut our promised guaranteed retirement benefits – especially when so many of us are counting on Social Security to help us lead a happy, healthy life when we retire.Amy RutkowskiCarbondale
