why worry about paying your debts??
the gov't owes a massive debt to the social security fund, and everyone thinks that it should be overlooked, why not just overlook yours too?
remember back when bush was president, all the conservatives, claiming just how great our economy was, and just how irrelevant the gov't debt was??
even days before the congress was informed that our economy would fall through the floor if we didn't bail them out, the conservatives were claiming
how great our economy was, and anyone who claimed otherwise, were just losers, or not working hard enough, ect....
well, I was writing letters to my elected representatives, along with yours probably, both dems and republicans during the clinton years, I spent the
bush years trying to tell the people on forums such as ATS. and well, as far as I can see, not too many people listened! I am not paying for the
mess. My family went through heck, just trying to live for the past 20 years. Our money was taken, even as I watched my feet deteriorate to the point
where I had to quite my job, and on ward till the ankle finally broke, and was in a splint, and I could find no doctor willing to take me without an
insane down payment, and oh no, my family made plenty of money, we didn't need any help from the gov't, no, matter of fact, give us some more!!
your neighbor needs to take her child to the doctor for the runny nose!! and well, the conservatives call me a liar when I tell the story, because
they don't want to admit that no, not everyone who needs medical treatment will get it..... I will never forget that, and I will never forgive
society or our gov't for it! This past year, I crapped blood, a hernia that I still say I got as a result of my work.....
I finally said heck with how much it's gonna cost me, and went and had it done....I saw jobs in the paper that I really wanted to go for, but well, I
was afraid to let the insurance go while crapping blood. so, well, the bill for the ankle was over two years of my wage. the bill for the hernia as
near as I can tell, cost me just as much....
in short, my job is costing me twice as much as I make in healthcare costs. which to me, sounds like a losing position to me....
My father and my mother worked and paid into the social security for their entire lives, my dad died before he collected anything, my mom died a year
after qualifying, where's there money?? my husband and me worked and paid most of our lives, where's ours? if they drop social security, or change
it to the point where I am still working my arse off, but well, even after hurt and not able to walk they are gonna tell me tough luck, you make too
much money, you're on your own......are they at least gonna refund the money I have put into it??
heck no!! they gave every cent they could get their hands on to their rich buddies and their pets (low income earners and the non earners of
society!!) let the god blessed economy collaspe!! it's an abomination to god and mankind! a mutant, part socialist, part capaitalist, and well,
both parts are geared to only really helping the rich get richer...and making everyone else poorer than poor!
I am done with it, they are spending more every month (and if the republicans were in charge, they would be too!!) than they would save if they cut
every handout to the average person down to 0!! they only want the money, so they can give that away too!
the cuts should be fair and balanced!! the answer cannot be to just rip off the old and disabled, since well, they are the least likely to hit the
streets in protest!
