For the Honorable Mitch McConnell Senate Majority Leader
Citizen's Discharge Petition
Year of 2015
To All to Whom These Presents Shall Come, Greetings.
Know Ye That: The undersigned does hereby call upon you as the Majority Leader of the United States Senate to consider the following facts.
WHEREAS, The Social Security Trust Fund was supposed to be reserved strictly to guarantee my Social Security benefits, and to protect Social Security for future generations; and
WHEREAS, The Social Security Trust Fund should be safe from "raids" by the politicians; and
WHEREAS, Each year since 1986, Congress took part or all of the Social Security surplus and spent it on wasteful projects to help themselves get re-elected; and
WHEREAS, The Social Security Trust Fund is now completely bankrupt and filled with useless government "IOU's"; and
WHEREAS, A bill was passed in the U.S. House of Representatives during the 107th Congress by a vote of 407-2 would protect the Social Security Trust Fund from further raids; and
WHEREAS, A tiny group of powerful Senators has abused the power of their positions to stop this bill from even coming to a vote in the United States Senate;
NOW, THEREFORE, BE IT RESOLVED, THAT I call upon you as the Senate Majority Leader to "discharge" and release this bill from the Senate's legislative gridlock and allow the "Lock Box" bill to come to an immediate vote before the full United States Senate.
