When you go to the polls this fall and vote, please note the budget that Paul Ryan has drawn up will privatize Social Security and affect Medicare and Medicaid as it is today.

This will not do anything but hurt senior citizens and the people who need these programs the most.

Whether you are Republican or Democrat, do not let this happen by staying at home and not voting against this.

As a senior, it’s only common sense that we cannot afford to put these people in office who support this budget!

If you are not a senior yet just remember you will be someday and this will effect you very much!
