and, I don't think that many of those seniors are gonna live long enough to collect the social secuirty....
but hey, look at the bright side, the way they've been building new homes, all you younger people should have your choice some really nice real
estate at cheap prices!! and the same goes for jobs!! plenty of jobs to go around...
my point was that the 14 trillion we are in debt for did not originate with the seniors, most the the money that the seniors are drawing out is coming
from a separate tax, which is supposedly for just this purpose.....and what isn't coming via revenue, well, is owed it!!
our fine government has whizzed through their revenues, whizzed through the social security funds, and well, if they are whining that they would
default if the limit isn't raised by tues, well, I guess they've done whizzed through the employees pensions because that's where they've been
getting the funding to keep running this long!
the problem isn't social security or the seniors and soon to be seniors that want the checks....
the problem is these guys are acting like there's a money tree (and for decades there was, it was called the social security funds) in their
backyard!! and when that tree died, well, they didn't stop the spending!! they ain't gonna stop the spending as long as they can find another
what they probably should do is close up the social security, the hud vouchers, the food stamps, the whole bit and start a new social program that
serves the need of the poor. ya know, I found out today that one of my coworkers voluteers for some program that provides help for the needy, he said
that something like 30% of the gov't grant that they recieve can be used for the salaries of those running the show...
so, well, let's just guess that out of every dollar that is used in these programs, 30 cents is going for just the salaries....
we have how many different agencies running separate programs for the poor? that's a heck of alot of employees, alot of overhead!! so, well, seems
to me at least that consolidating them all into one program would save some money!! probably alot of money!!
