By Repjames Grover
I mentioned in my newsletter
for last week die need for further
Congressional action to aid die
aged and to keep Social Security
payments in line widi die rising
cost of living. There is oneodier
a c t i o n that all Congressmen
should take in behalf of dieir
elderly constituents and diatisto
kill once and for all a vicious
rumor that is sweeping die nation.
The rumor concerns House Bill
5710, which was killed in committee
last year but which lives on
in an apparendy organized rum or
campaign which provides my office
with many letters and phone
calls each week and which is
apparently very much alive in
odier districts. It is said tiiat
HR 5710 would have pooled Social
Security and welfare funds and
made die payments dirough welfare
offices. This would not only
have made a demeaning change in
the mediod of distributing Social
Security funds, but would have
further direatened die integrity
of die Social Security system.
The bill was killed in committee.
Still, the rumor persists tiiat it
passed and that die whole Social
Security system will collapse in
chaos. This is just not true.
And while we're offering reassurance,
I'd also like to calm
die fears of those Long Islanders
who are wondering whetiier tiiey
shouldn't cancel plans to visit
Washington t h i s summer. They
fear die camp- in and possible
disorders during die summer.
I can only say tins. Don't let
anyone or anytiiing frighten you
out of visiting die Capitol. This
city belongs to every American.
The demonstrations have, so far,
been o r d e r l y . Themonument
areas are well policed and all
precautions considered necessary
to avoid major problems
have been taken. Should any difficulty
arise, I am sure tiiat
v i s i t o r s would have adequate
notice. The possibility of such
difficulties is considered very
It would be a shame to deprive
the family of a memorable trip
to Washington because of fears
of problems which most likely
