Get real. The biggest expense the US government has, which is the worst sink hole in history, are under ENTITLEMENTS. Read this as social security,
Medicaid, and Medicare, and various welfare programs. This is what is bankrupting the US and this is what is sucking the life out of our
No... It's military spending. Stop spending on the military and help the People out.
Abolish every single entitlement program and put the responsibility for your life and welfare back on you and your family.
Ahhhh.... I see You want to see hundreds of thousands with no where to live, no food to eat, no clothes to wear - starving in the street. Yeah,
that's all good and well when there are jobs to be had for any willing to work. These days the number of unemployed is huge. But One must count not
ONLY the People on unemployment insurance (that's what the gov uses) but also those who have slipped off the rolls and are still looking for work. I
know MANY professionals who are in the same boat I am in. They were laid off - and now no One is hiring.
And some, like Me, who will take anything - I would take anything that doesn't require Me to stand (health issues) - STILL can't get a job. Many are
in Their 50's and older. With 50+ other applicants, most in Their 20's and 30's, it's nigh impossible to be hired if One is older.
But I guess We should starve or freeze to death in the winter. That is a FAR better solution than any other here.
The US federal government should pay salaries and other benefits to its employees only - period.
While They watch hundreds of thousands die of starvation. Like in Biafra or Ethiopia. Awesome.
