Dean -- pass on to your Aunt(?) Dear Abby that she's still giving out good advice after so many year, just like her mother!

Could tell us the status of student loan forgiveness. We have 2 adult daughters who are still paying student loans. I is a burden for us because we need to help them financially.

Congressman: By your Soc Sec message - are you in favor and is there a piece of legislation that will remove the cap on Soc Sec ?

Hi, is it possible that the decision on redistricting will be pushed into 2024?

Could you give us your view of re-writing the egregiously skewed 2017 Republican written federal tax code? We keep talking about our debt, but increasing taxation in multiple levels above $1,000,000 and eliminating the unfair taxation differences between income/earned wages and wealth/investment/multi-national corporations. Even the group Millionaires for Democracy are strongly in favour of a major re-write. Thank you.

The SS Trust Fund has to invest it's money somewhere for years, until people retire. They invest most of it in US Bonds, which is government debt.
