Your story sounds like a scene from “Men In Black”. Scary! I usually go by my gut feeling on things when I’m not to versed on what is actually going on. I see your point-of-view about the Gov. not being here to support us and I agree. I do believe that their are people who need help because they are poor and uneducated (this is a real big problem right now). I think everyone should pay into it, but the kicker is that only those in need should receive it. That’s SS and Medicare and Medicaid.
Right now there are so many unemployed, homeless, and as it looks right now, will not be working for quite some time. I mean even the minimum wage jobs are gone. Really, it’s very bad. Without medical care people will die. This is a sad state of affairs, for a country that not even 10-15 years ago was is good shape, economically. Things have gone down hill fast and sorry to say, will continue down that trail for quite some time.
Sure we won last week, but it’s only a start and a very, very late start at that. People still don’t get how very bad things are, and how bad they will get before they get better. We need these services at the present Brenda and getting rid of them now would be tragic. Maybe in the future we can work on SS and the rest, but now is really not the time.
I think everyone should stop talking about SS, Medicare, and Medicaid. I think it’s time to trim the fat at the other end of the totem pole (the Upper end). Start with Congressmen on SS and off those fat paychecks, even after they leave office. Who the hell okayed that one? They did. I think a law must be passed where they only get raises when the entire country votes on it. No more hand outs for the low-lifes in DC.
No more 10-day trips for the President and 3000 people. No more junkets for the Mrs. and her friends on OUR dollar. While Americans are starving and homeless, dying because of no medical care.
Do you want me to believe that it’s all right for the President and Michelle to take these trips? Do you think it’s all right for Nancy to use the air force jet at something like 178,000/trip?
Do you think it’s all right for Charlie Rangle to walk out of a Congressional proceeding, when he has misused our money, and for years yet, and none of those _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _, I can’t write it, complained about his HUD apartments, in Manhatta? If you think the Dems didn’t know what he was up to then you are mistaken, they neither did nor said nothing.
The elected officials in DC are pretty much a bunch of bloodsuckers. The problem is they are sucking the blood out of each and every true American, and I’m sick of it.
Brenda lets start taking things away from the undeserving DC crowd then the other 98% of the country can be helped out when they need it without feeling Guilty, because there is no money. ss
