umm...it was unconstitutional for them to take all that money from me???
hey, I got an idea.....
how about they give all that money back to me then, with interest??
what?? they don't have it, umm...wonder where it all went to since it most certainly didn't ALL go to the seniors!!!
there's alot of things the gov't is doing that is unconstitutional, with most if it going to benefit people far less worthy than the seniors!! stop
some of that crap first......then come talk to us boomers!
and well, hate to tell ya this, but if you include all the interest on the debt that our gov't owes the social security fund...where all that money
went....into the general fund, to pay for all those student loans and grant, all those business startups, food stamps, healthcare......including the
research in medicine!!....well, it seems to really have been rather successful....we just didn't anticipate the fact that our dear ole gov't would
make a ton of debt and then decide it didn't want to pay back the money they borrowed from it...
which, well, all these lectures to the common folk about paying your mortgage don't mean squat if we as a nation refuse to pay our bills...what's good
for the goose, is good for the gander.
I've lived with this "needs based" welfare system all this time, listened to my elected representatives as they explained that my property tax, my tax
for this or that, well, they have to be increased, not to help pay for medicare, oh, no, but rather medicaid!! then, I sat with a broken ankle with
the doctors refusing to set it because I didn't have insurance.....so, here I am, no insurance, can't walk, no income to call my own, but oh, ya, I
should have title to my husband's income I guess...and well, to be blunt, there wasn't enough of his!!! and well, oh, ya, the kid down the street had
a runny nose, and well, of course, my family had to pitch in and help pay for the doctor bill for that, but na, I wasn't qualified according to their
I will not keep paying if they change the medicare to "needs based" since I know that will mean that I will be still in the spot I am now, paying for
all these other people, and not being able to do squat for myself!!!
I won't pay my bills, why should I....the gov't set the example, you don't have to pay if you don't want to!!
And, I won't pay their taxes anymore!!!
Let those who have benefitted, from the grants, from the gov't backed loans, from the free healthcare, free rent, from the decade long warfare, tax
credits for big corps, bailouts to bankers, let them pay!! I will be done!
