Citizens say: Leave Social Security, other benefits alone. The takeaway from this story is that programs like Social Security are absolutely vital to millions of Americans. Any kind of profound change could destroy lives. It's easy to pontificate that we do not need such programs. It's a lot harder when we are absolutely dependent upon them.
