Well it has been a while since I posted on my blog, not I guess I didn’t have much to say, but lately I have had to deal with government agencies to help my 87 year old father get all his affairs in order after moving back to Utah. He lived in Southern CA for 41 years.
I have discoverd that when you get old dealing with government agencies from the federal level on down is a disaster, and for the most part the employees working there don’t really care about your problems. You see I blame a lot of this on the GOP since I live in a GOP controlled state,dealing with the government here is just a bad if not worse. I do not see these changing until we as voters rise up and vote the correct individuals into office.
The last election the voters voted the GOP back in control, and I am really scared for our country, from what I have read and observed they are not for the middle class, the poor, or the people on Social Security. The first agenda announced by the GOP controlled congress was to cut SSDI payments by a whopping 20%! How does this even make sense to anyone with a reasonble level of intelligence?
I am trying not to ramble here but this reaally pisses me off, why do they insist on cutting funds to those who need it the most!
There are so many different soultions to fix Social Security, yet our congress continues to ignore them. Just a few examples;
Pay back the monies that the govenmnt took from Social Security in the 60’s, it was never the governments money to spend. Social Security is paid for by the employees and the employers not our government!
Take the with holding caps off of Social Security, everyone should pay into this program year round,not just the middle class and the poor. Statistics show if both of these were done, Social Security would remain solvent for an additional 75 years!
SOCIAL SECURITY IS NOT AN ENTITLEMENT, WE PAID INTO IT AND WE EARNED IT!
The more I read and hear, the more this just pisses my off, I could go on and on!
I would love to see more people will to stand up for our rights, what is so wrong with rasing the taxes on the rich? What is so wrong with making the NFL a multi billion dollar business pay taxes? What is so wrong with stopping the subsidies given to the oil companies? We can’t we reduce defense spending, by the way it is the most costly oart of our US government budget.
I will tell you the 1% in our country control the government and they won’t allow it!
Like I said I could go on and on, I will stopr for today with more to come.
Please remember to vote smart, with intelligence, some quality research, and make your voice heard.
As always Rusty loves you!
