It is unfortunate that people fall for the scare tactics used by career politicians. One big untruth making the rounds is that the Tea Party wants to take away Social Security.
The fact is, the Tea Party desperately wants to preserve Social Security. We believe this can be done by making sure everyone 55 or above gets the benefits for which they have paid. Then we have to find a solution to keep it solvent for our younger workers.
When your personal budget is broken, you pay your regularly occurring bills, then look for ways to reduce your expenses and maximize your income.
That is what the Tea Party is working toward.
