vote coming to Congress concerning Social Security

I am a American Senior Citizen and just the other day I heard by way of T V Congress was voting on a bill that would allow the government to take 55% of our Social Security check. Am I understanding this right or is this a joke? When it comes to our livelihood I dont consider it a joke. I ask if this is the situation, that as President, dont allow this to happen. It is rough enough the way it is now for seniors to live. I believe if Congress wants to cut spending they should start with their pays and see if they can live on what we try to live on. Medicare keeps cutting what they will pay but our medical expenses keep going up. I truly am concerned about this as I am sure all seniors are.
