When you asked the Senator if they would do everything in their power to stop this deal if it includes the reported cuts to Social Security benefits, what did they say?

Both are not in favor of a deal that cuts Social security. Left name, address and email

— Wilmington, 2012-12-18 07:35:35

Asked them to have people making over $150,000 continue to contribute to SS.

— Frankford, 2012-12-18 08:02:38

I was told the message would be passed on.

— Middletown, 2012-12-18 08:34:14

I strongly urged them to let the President know to take SS, Medicare & Medicaid OFF THE TABLE!!!

— New Castle, 2012-12-18 11:52:22

They are with us! The answer I got was not wavering!

— Millsboro, 2012-12-18 12:42:53

Coons' ofc indicated he's against any cuts to SS; Carper's ofc just indicated that they would forward my views.

— Newark, 2012-12-18 12:49:46

The staffers I spoke with both agreed that the Senators support maintaining current SS levels and eligibility ages as well as the $250k threshold.

— Bear, 2012-12-18 13:14:38

Both offices took my name and address

— Rehoboth, 2012-12-18 13:40:17

I voiced my opposition to cutting SS taxes in any way.

— Milton, 2012-12-18 13:47:50

i called them on this issue a few days ago

— newark, 2012-12-18 14:07:04

Told rumors of having Social Security CPI moved to chained CPI or any other aspect of these benefits being on the table are NOT confirmed. The issue was understood, and I was told the Senators are in agreement that these benefits should NOT be on the table and that they will continue to oppose any cuts to SS, Medicare or Medicaid benefits. The conversation was polite, respectful and as a constituent I felt I was heard.

— Hockessin, 2012-12-18 14:09:53

Spoke to aides who assured me that the Senators are of the same mind and will continue to protect SS and push for increases for the top 2%.

— Wilmington, 2012-12-18 14:43:56

I received voice mails in both cases. However, I did leave my message to both. Also: has anyone considered that those who make more than $100,000 ought to be paying into the system, since they will be collecting!??

— Wilmington, 2012-12-18 16:24:28

Reps in both offices assured me that the Senators "supported protecting Social Security".

— Lewes, 2012-12-19 06:32:06

Spoke with staffers. Both are opposed to cuts in Social Security. For Medicaid I strongly urged a raise in the salary cap, not cuts.

— Millvile, 2012-12-19 07:02:14

I spoke directly with members of both offices. Both offices said the senators agree with my views, which were. Do not touch SS except to eliminate the SS tax cap on all income. SS is not responsible for any of the debt. I also told them that they should stay with the plan to raise taxes on those making over 250,000.00.....not one million! This is what I voted for!

Please, do not deal with politics as you would sprots! This is not a loyalty you render to a sprots team, where your hearth lives and breath for that team regardless of its performance in the game. This is NOT a game. The performance of a particular party and its members will cost your fanancial, educational, profesional future. Your health and any other security depends on their performance unlike sprots. You are asking a total stranger to represent you in matters of your future. Imagine you asking your neighbor to do this for you. Would you do it? So, why do it with a stranger you've only seeing on tv or heard on the radio. You do not see or deal with this person everyday! So, why not become more dilligent with this stranger? Listen to gossip or rumors but, make sure you find the ways to verify them. I watch CSPAN, and listen to Congress members from both chambers. This is my opportunity to listen to them debating for the different bills, and their particular speeches. I tell you what they say on the floor of Congress, is not necessarily what the say on the radio or tv infront of the camera! Again, is to your advantage to scope these individuals. It is to your own advantage and protection. Spend some time doing your homework. Listen to both sides with an open mind. Do not take sides! See the overall picture of things. No side is perfect, but there is one that will be closer in delivering what is the best, not just for you but, for the whole Nation. Our forfathers formed this Nation,with local and international opposition,with a progresive outlook. If not, they would of continued been part of the crown. As progressives, we should continue, as part of our duty, their mission of looking for the ways to formate and deliver to the citizens of this country of ours systems and/or programs that will service everyone of us. This system of government was made to serve We the People.. , and not the other way around. The day when this government, and those elected officials, start operating in a way that offsets the mission of our Constitution and the laws of the land then, that will be the time to start a new government. Our system of government works. It is just that there is too much corruption! We have allowed private entities to take over the government by using lobbiest, or supporting political candidates run for important key positions in government. This has to STOP by pointing those cancerous cells in our community and get rid of them. Their sick and greed mentality go against the commong good of the people. We must retrain the people's sub-concious. From childhood our society trains us in always been the 1rst. This idea has its draw backs! It tells us to be too individualistic,puting away the opposition in the land that time forgot . They are not important! This attitude we take it to adulthood at all level, specially in business. When corporation have the means and power to make more money regardless of who they hurt, or destroy, they will take that opportunity. The product will be paid by the underdog, us! Our society grooms us from childhood to be this way, and we pass it along to the future generation. It is a none ending cycle. We have to really learn to be second, third ! This is without loosing our leadership position in the World. We have to learn how to keep a balance. We, as a society, are still a project in progress! With not well define borders. We are unique in this way. No other country or civilization in history has gone this far. The word CITIZEN has now a new meaning. It most be define properly. It is constantly defining itself. It is evolving. It carries a lot of power in our society, as envisioned by our forfathers. We must teach the importance and values of this responsability of citizenship to our new generation. That regardless of race, language, sex, religious affiliation, once you become a citizen of this Nation, you are primarily an American carrying all its responsiblities, and that includes VOTING! Staying home and not vote, it only tell us that you just DO NOT CARE about this country. What are you to expect? Do NOT blame the government or the elected officials for what you get! Participation is eccential!!!
