The president has suggested that senior citizens may not receive Social Security checks and veterans may not receive benefit checks if we are not willing to raise the debt ceiling. They should be the first to receive their checks.

As the president has noted, “There may not be enough money in the coffers.” If this is so, a better option is to cut back on spending and politicians' salaries, benefits and vacations. Pay our veterans and seniors and deny the politicians who created the problem by overspending.
