61 years old and have worked 45 years

I'm a 61 year old Black woman and i have worked 45 years and still working, i worked for a large company in the western part of NY. This company sold and resold the company, I losted all of my retirement and went to medical instutite that pays me only 1/4 of the salary that i made. I am currently living paycheck to paycheck, with most of my money going to medical insurance and everyday living expenses. I will have to work until i'm 67 before getting medical and I afraid that when i reach that number there will be no ss or medical. I have earned my medical and ss. I don't won't congress to starting cutting ss and medicaid. It's all i can do to get too my job daily. I think anyone who's worked 25-30 years they have earned every penny of medical social security.
