judging by these guidelines here, I would venture to guess that the majority of the under 50s are receiving some type assistance!!!
what?? I am wrong, not everyone one under 50 has children???
well, guess what your stat is way off also....
I mean, reckon, what is the percentage of those between the age of 50 and retirement age???
opps, it drops down significantly, I bet!! probably below the percentage of families with children getting state subsidized insurance for them!!!
my supervisor at work stayed a night at the hospital, she's over 62 and has medicare...they charged over $10,000 for her to stay that night!! a
broken ankle costs over $20,000 to fix...when people talk about the fraud in the medicare program, well, just who is it that is defrauding the
system?? the patient?? or the doctor, the hospital, ect? hate to say this, but well, alot of those doctors are under 50!! just like most of the
robosigners were under 50, just like most of those fathers faking bad backs to justify not working to get out of child support, or working under the
table, well, they are under 50, just like most of those single moms are under 50,
need I go on??
the fact of the matter is, most of those who are getting social security at the moment either worked most of their adult lives, or were those
traditional housewives, which is work!!! they paid their dues!! so didn't most of those over 50!! they worked, they paid their taxes, they paid
their social security tax, they didn't take handouts, heck, in the 70's early 80's there wasn't that much in handouts!
social security isn't a social welfare program, taxes were taken out, a promise was given!! want to break the promise, sure, go ahead, just don't
be too upset when those who are affected by your decision decides that they can act just as dishonorably!! a gov't that doesn't keep it's
promises, especially this one that so often spends insane amounts of money on crap, can't say crap to us if we decide not to be as obedient and
willing to give up our hard earned money!!
but don't expect us over 50s to work till we drop, and keep giving money for you younger ones and your kids.....
if we can starve, so can't yous!
