To the editor:
Congress has the power to enact legislation under Article 1 Section 8 the power to make laws necessary and proper for carrying out the power vested in congress.
This is all well and good. However, the Congress is voted in office by the people; therefore they should work for the betterment of the people that they elected to represent them. So why should they be using our money to eliminate or use our money to correct their mistakes? This is not only irresponsible — it is close to stealing.
My reason for this letter, is to let people know that there is a bill which, if voted in, would protect our money for good.
The bill is H.R. 1113 so call and ask your representative, no matter the party, to vote for this bill.
The bill is for the protection and truth in budgeting for Social Security. That means our money could not be used, not taken from the trust fund and could not be in the unified federal budget.
It would be off limits.
So please call ASAP — the bill is coming up this month.
