U.S. Senator Jerry Moran (R-Kan.) today joined 12 of his freshman Senate colleagues in asking President Obama to stop using scare tactics to frighten seniors and to start responsibly addressing the financial problems facing the country. The request came on the heels of President Obama’s recent threat to stop issuing Social Security checks if Congress fails to fulfill his request and raise the debt ceiling. The President has made similar threats about paychecks for the military and their families.
