I believe this bill should repeal the taxation of social security. I feel that I'm being penalized because of a pension. I worked for 44 years and contributed to the pension. And I'm trying to save my money so that I won't have to depend on the government to take care of me in my old age.

You are taxing me in everything which I think is totally unfair. Stop having other programs giving free monies to people who don't make any effort in working or who are not American citizens.

Put my name down also as one who agrees with this bill. I have worked hard and now that I am ready to retire the goverment wants to tax me again on what I already paid tax on once. If this tax can't be repealed - at least the numbers used to calculate the rate should be raised. The currect way the tax is calculated is just a tax on on the middle class - the same way the FED taxed the senior citizens by lowering the interest rates. The Big banks are swimming in cheap money and the poor retires can't even keep up with inflation. Thanks for your time and I support HR 3894, the “Senior Citizens Tax Elimination Act
