Social Security Debates in Florida

A copy of John's opening and closing comments on March 3, 2005: Good Morning, I would like to thank the Tower Forum for this opportunity to take part in discussing this important issue. I am the Florida State Director for FreedomWorks. FreedomWorks is a national grassroots organization of over 700,000 Americans fighting for policies that respect the dignity of the individual and empowers them to be more in control of their lives and the money they work hard to earn. Social Security is an important institution in this country and for two thirds of the elderly, Social Security is their major source of income. For one third of the elderly, Social Security is virtually their only income.

Platz, 78, of Mableton, Ga., was one of many people who complained to their representative in Congress at meetings around the country in recent weeks, that the government was squandering its surplus Social Security funds on other federal programs.
