This is an open letter to Congress, both the House and Senate, and members of both parties and independents.
First, consider the national budget. There is no money for grants, subsidies, loans or bailouts. Stop looking for budget cuts. Look instead at the projected revenue, prioritize and decide what can be kept.
Let the truth be known about Social Security. It was never supposed to be part of the national budget. Social Security did not go broke. Congress made it part of the budget to get access to (steal) the funds that were supposed to be held in trust.
