New standards for Social Security

All the bull regarding raising taxes for Social Security and-or lowering benefits is just an attempt by politicians to create a big smokescreen. If only the people who have worked and paid into the system most of their lives were able to draw money, there would be no crisis. Aliens, legal or illegal, should not be able to draw unless they have paid into the system for most of their lives -- like hardworking Americans have. Our politicians, on both sides of the aisle, are robbing the American working people.
