Entitlements my ass…
I paid cash for my Social Security Insurance! Just because they borrowed my money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout! Congressional benefits like free health care, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, three weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days: now that’s welfare; and they have the nerve to call my retirement entitlements!
Someone please tell me what the Hell is wrong with all the people that run this country! We’re broke and can’t help our Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.? In recent months we have provided aid to Haiti , Chile , Pakistan dozens of others… Literally BILLIONS of DOLLARS! Our retired seniors living on a fixed incomes receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government gives hundreds of billions to foreign countries! They call Social Security and Medicare entitlements even though most of us have been paying for Social Security all our working lives. And now, when its time for us to collect, the Government is running out of money.
Why did the Government borrow from our Social Security in the first place? AMERICA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, elderly going without needed medication, mentally ill going without treatment, etc. Imagine if our Government gave us the same support they give the people who hate us.
Sad, isn’t it?
