    Senate must raise debt ceiling above $12T

    The Senate must move legislation to raise the federal debt limit beyond $12.1 trillion by mid-October, a move viewed as necessary despite protests about the record levels of red ink.

    There should be NO CUTS to either program. The government has been dipping into these funds for years without paying it back. They weren't supposed to be doing that in the first place...IT'S ILLEGAL!! Bailing out the airline industry in the 80's is one example of them illegally dipping into Social Security Funds.

    Screw bailing out the bankers who have orchestrated this financial meltdown...BAIL OUT AMERCAN CITIZENS and put the money back that they have stolen from the SOcial Security coffers! A couple of trillion should suffice!

    Only Americans should get SS and Medicare, period.

    All that they have to do is take all the illegals off of our medicare and social security and we would have the money to help OUR people.
