Little Lord Farenthold

Newly elected Congressman Blake Farenthold has repeatedly expressed his scorn for those receiving any kind of government assistance, including social security. He calls it welfare. He may not know that working people pay into these programs throughout their working lives in the form of payroll deductions. Social Security, far from being "welfare," is a mandatory loan a worker makes to the government, which collects no interest and which will not likely ever be paid back in full when a worker retires. Nevertheless it is an extremely important of most retired senior's income.
