I fail to see the Newtown connection in this nonconstructive partisan letter which apparently seeks to scare local seniors. Mr. Epstein's letter does nothing to further the conversation around a legitimate policy issue in the future of Social Security which according to SSA.gov "if trust fund assets are exhausted without reform, benefits will necessarily be lowered," citing lower birth rates. This is an area where we need an open and objective, multi generational, national dialogue, not fear based political propaganda.
I agree, thank you Richard. The example given by Ms. Murray illustrates that this is a state issue, not a town issue. If the same case occurred in Connecticut the plaintiff would have sued the state of Connecticut, not the town of Newtown.
What fun to have stumbled across this write up. As a friend of one of the daughters I was fortunate to have visited with them many times in the early 80s in various locations. A wonderful, adventuresome family!
