Social Security and Nonviolence

I sent this to Senators Jack Reed and Sheldon Whitehouse today:

As I hear news of certain politicians eager to reduce or eliminate Social Security, I begin to have thoughts of Gandhi. Fasting in his helplessness, his powerful example changed a nation.

What would these same politicians do if their parents began fasting?

I hope it won't come to that, but you never know.
