Sheryl Tenicat, of Des Moines, starts her story at the 2:00 mark...
“$624 a month. That’s what I live on. 99 of that goes to my Medicare Part ‘A’ and ‘B’. After I get my check in two weeks, it’s gone. I have nothing. I live on what I eat here (at the senior center). I don’t want my cost of living cut because I’ve paid in since I was 16.”
Sheryl's story is all too common. Many seniors' sole source of income is through Social Security, and threats to cut their benefits force them to risk poverty and make them food-insecure.
Add your name, and send a message to Washington that we need to expand Social Security benefits, not cut them!
