Letter: Limit entitlements to those who earn them

(Continued)

What has this to do with entitlements? Everything. If we were not short on Social Security monies, no one would even speak to the issue.

I do not believe that any person should receive Social Security benefits who has not worked and contributed for at least 40 quarters.

I do not believe we should be paying Social Security to individuals incarcerated in prisons. They are already receiving $40,000 worth of benefits that states are paying for.

I do not believe that individuals that come into the U.S. illegally, under the guise of getting a better life, should be paid any Social Security benefits.

I do believe that Congress should look at entitlements and just who is entitled to them. An illegal alien is entitled to nothing,

We who have worked for, sacrificed for, contributed to, the building of, the preservation of , these United States are the only ones who are truly entitled to any and all the benefits that this great country stands for.
