  • The President needs to address the issue of Social Security. The MSM is stating that he will be taking away SS and that he also has no platform for a new medical insurance plan. He does, in fact, and it has been posted but it’s not being seen by most. Social Security is a huge deal for retired people and taking that away will lose millions of votes. He must do something about that immediately!
