The nerve, counting on Social Security

Dear Editor:I agree with Bill Schaffer’s letter, published Feb. 9, that Amy Rutkowski and those of her ilk have to get a grip regarding the future of Social Security. The audacity of those leftist socialist communist pinko fags, to believe that they should be entitled to get money out of a system that they have paid into and counted on for their entire working lives. They need to be more like you and work their fingers to the bone, scrimp and save and not count on the safety net that our “communist” government so graciously set up for our retirement more than 70 years ago. By the way, Bill, since you seem not to believe in the Social Security notion, please endorse your Social Security checks and forward them to me.George JohnsonSnowmass
