LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Ryan's budget won't help seniors

Rep. Paul Ryan's budget plan has passed the House and was debated in the Senate last week. His stated objective is to balance the budget in 10 years. As an advocate for seniors, I am concerned about his involving Social Security and Medicare in budget negotiations.

Sounds like Rep. Ryan just does not like these vital benefits to seniors which we have paid for over many years.
