I was pointing out the obvious flaw in your reasoning---all of society cannot earn enough, or better
themselves to the point of fiscal security.
Society needs less skilled blue collar workers. And that group will get hit the hardest. It is the people
who make just barely enough not to qualify for benefits who suffer. And if they slip down a notch in pay
the next set of folks up to bear the burden of being classed as the 'gainfully employed working poverty'
are those with meager skills and meager schooling.
And I don't envy anyone, make all you want, I'm happy for you. But realize there are those who
don't possess your wits, and can't acquire your skills, no matter how hard they try.
There are an awful lot of Americans who literally live paycheck to paycheck. Most people I know,
and work with, are in this situation, and this legislation will hurt them the most....
I could care less on a personal level. I have Native American health care and won't be "taxed" or
penalized, but I can (if I want) use the same services that are available for everyone else for free.
The only reason I care is because....I care
