To the Journal editor:
I have come across something that is very interesting in my studies and research on and about “politics.”
It is something that my “sixth-sense” told me was true, but that is never enough of a reason to believe something. So I did research on it. Here is what I found.
There is a big “dis-connect” (if I may use some cable-news lingo) between the Republican members of the U.S. House of Representatives and the U.S. Senate and the American citizens who are Republicans.
When I average the research studies together, I find that 63% of the American people who identify themselves as Republicans are against the Congress and president cutting Social Security benefits.
On the other hand (and this is just my opinion based upon my research and studies), I would say that 98%-99% of current Republican members of the House and the Senate are for cutting Social Security benefits and that well over 50% of them would love to abolish Social Security (as would Budget Director and Acting Chief of Staff Mick Mulvaney–look it up).
How this has happened will be the subject of a future letter to the editor.
