Social Security/Medicare

  • Social Security and Medicare are the two best programs ever signed into law by our government. At 68 years of age Smith is a recipient of both programs and he would go to the end of the earth, if necessary, to protect and prudently expand both Social Security and Medicare.
  • Make crystal clear to the American public that the Federal Government has irresponsibly borrowed in excess of $2.5 trillion from the Social Security Trust Fund in exchange for government bonds to use for other purposes. Before we tweak Social Security, America needs to tweak its leadership.
