This letter is in regard to the news that Steve Mnuchin is cutting the investments for civil service and postal retirees because the federal budget is too big. These employees paid into this system just like you are paying into Social Security. Will Social Security be the next place Mnuchin looks for money?
I am sure that there are many people of you will think this article doesn't affect them because they are not a federal or postal retiree.
Here are the reasons it will affect every community in this state. If the retirement money is cut, we will no longer eat out, we will limit our grocery purchases, we will not be buying a vehicle, we will not be going on vacation, we will not be buying new clothes or crafting supplies. Basically, any purchase that we don't have to make, we will put off. If you are a business owner, can you afford this loss of income? If not, then please write to Senators Enzi and Barasso and Representative Cheney.
