LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Preserve Social Security and Medicare

Saturday, January 5, 2013 | 6:00 a.m. CST

I understand that there are many items on everyone's political agenda that need discussion. However one that should concern us all is what too many people call entitlements — Social Security and Medicare. These are not entitlements. They are paid for by the people. If we fail to provide for seniors and their health care, our society will not survive as the nation we want it to be. We are a nation that cares about families and their well-being.
