In regard of your editorial about fixing Social Security ("Social Security can be fixed," April 26), why do you always blame the Republicans? For two years, President Barack Obama had control of the two chambers, so why did he not fix the problem?

He passed the health care program. Since he had the majority, why not?

Here is a solution: Raise the retirement age to 70, stop paying out to the children who have lost a parent, and stop paying benefits to people who don't pay into the Social Security program.
