One of the programs that have been most fought over in the U.S. is social security. This program was established by President Roosevelt some 80 years ago and its initial aim was to help Americans when they reach retirement but it has been ceaselessly misused and taken advantage of.
Many presidents have worked hard to change the system, to ease the burden for posterity, but have often come across the impediment that is progressive legislators. Nowadays, the social security program is in dire need of a change. Donald Trump promised to retain the benefits of social security and Medicaid, but there are still some things that must be changed.
The news is flooring U.S. citizens and disclosing a controversy you wish could only be made up. Instead, it has only proven the major issues social security faces and the obstacle President Trump has to overcome.
Somehow it is sad to think of all the ordinary, hard-working U.S. citizens, who put their nose to the grindstone for years to financially support their families and nation, paying into the Social Security program, and are now deprived of their basic benefits due to these unfair abuses. In the meantime, illegal immigrants and undocumented citizens are enjoying the benefits of this program.
