This segment originally aired on the November 10th, 2013 episode of Ring of Fire on Free Speech TV. Millions of Americans depend on Social Security to be able to put food on their table, and to keep their heads above water after retirement.  But more importantly, they earned this money by paying into the system for their entire working lives.  Still, there is serious talk in Washington about cutting Social Security benefits. Ring of Fire guest host Farron Cousins joins with best-selling author Cliff Schecter to explain why this is even being considered.
