I'm Doug, and I'm very sorry to hear of your concerns. My goal is to provide you with excellent service today.
You asked: Can democrats block any changes Republicans try to make to social security? Yes, that would be possible through a filibuster of any attempt by the Republicans to pass a bill changing social security.
However, in an effort to allay your fears, the likely changes in Social Security will almost certainly not effect the retirement, disability or survivor benefit that you may be receiving. Changes are most likely to be made, if any, to the welfare benefits overseen by social security and to Medicaid, and the social security taxes paid by workers. What is not expected to be seen is the lessening of any benefits presently being paid to retirees, disabled people and widows and widowers.
