People Talk: Are you concerned that the federal budget will get balanced on the backs of older Americans?

Yvonne Nogauer, Rescue "I'€™m frustrated with the Senate hearings. They'€™re playing politics with this. They'€™re thinking about what'€™s best for the parties not what'€™s best for us. This is not a time for partisanship, it'€™s a time to look at what's best for our country. We have to close the corporate loopholes."

Susan Moran, Cameron Park "€œI am outraged. I'd like to know if McClintock'€™s constituency in their big houses in Granite Bay that get all the tax breaks would please help pay for these wars the Republicans have been waging."

Ron Short, El Dorado Hills "No, not really. I think it'€™s a far more complex issue than that. Focusing on one group like that is the type of politics that got us into this mess. The problem is systemic. Everyone'€™s affected."

Paul Raveling, El Dorado Hills "€œYes, certainly, and not just seniors. Don'€™t forget about the poor and disenfranchised. The Republican proposal definitely favors wealthy people. They need to address the debt ceiling separately. It'€™s what we in the software industry call an '€˜unneeded interdependency.'"

Pat Hilliard, Cameron Park "€œYes. If we let the Republicans have their way. I'€™m certainly worried about Social Security and Medicare."
