Sanders isn't giving us hand outs, he wants citizens to start getting back what every American pays into the government every year! How convenient
republicans ignore the trillion and billions of handouts given to the military complex year after year without any kind of complaints from congress.
The trillions spent on black projects. How much of our tax dollars have gone to corporate bail outs? Not only that, how many times has our
government double and triple taxed the American public? It's a fact the wealthy actually pay less as a proportion of their income than the rest of
us! What about corporate welfare? What about the billions of dollars in foreign aid? What about our millionaire representatives who receive the
best healthcare on the backs of the very same taxpayers who may not have it, nor can they even come close to comparing the coverage? How about our
representatives outrageous average salaries of 174,000 dollars a year? No term limits and they use their political position as a lifetime career!!!
No wonder a majority of them stay in office well into their 70"s!
These are the same representatives who want to cut social security after millions of Americans have paid into it their entire life! The reason why
Social Security isn't solvent is because your representatives embezzled money out of the Social Security fund! Any private citizen would be receiving
jail time if they did the same thing.
Representatives also want to deny citizens healthcare coverage when they"re receiving the best policies money can buy!!
Are we blind to the fact that every industrial nation has government subsidized health care? A lot of them run more efficient, and costs much less
than America's health care system. Too many people believe the propaganda surrounding government subsidized health care. I don't hear nor see a
major uprising in countries that have this system. Most can't believe we put our lives in the hands of private insurance companies who are in it for
Colleges are putting a generation of kids into a lifetime of debt. Pretty soon colleges are going to price themselves right out of the market. Not
only that, it's going to be one of the main factors in a U.S. economic collapse. Really, what is wrong with having the government fund college
education? Education is what makes an economy strong and people who get an education give back 10 fold to a country's economy. Without education, a
country has absolutely nothing and will cause it to diminish to a 3rd world country status!! It's about time conservatives realize the importance of
What I here on ATS absolutely astounds me! Some members here complained about government programs that are helping citizens, like social security,
Medicare, food stamps and welfare. These are vital benefits. Yeah, I said food stamps and welfare. Every country needs a safety net for their
citizens. Do these welfare programs need an overhaul to help cut out waste, misuse, and forcing welfare recipients to earn the checks they receive,
absolutely!! But lets not shoot ourselves in the foot people! We're our own worst enemy! We act like cheerleaders when the U.S. government spends
more on defense than the next seven countries combined!!! That's ok, but let's ignore the very same people who sacrifice their own children to defend
this country! Government was not only created to protect it's people, but it was also created for public service.
Oh, and for those who say government can't run anything right... Social Security has been the most successful program in American history. Without
it, was a miserable descent into poverty. Medicare is also a government program that is extremely popular.
