President Obama as many readers already know has said that he was willing to consider Entitlements as part of the Debt Ceiling Solution. However, as I contended in a letter to the President, any cuts, in Social Security or Medicare are just unacceptable.
As I understand it, back in 1965 President Lyndon Johnson signed legislation that permitted Congress to borrow from Social Security funds with the promissory note that Congress would repay what they borrowed. Not to worry, we won’t keep it, we will repay it. Uh Huh. Well, friends, here we are in the 2011, and there are those in Congress as well as those who are not, advocating deep cuts in Social Security as well as Medicare. We all have to pitch in they say. There is only two problems with this philosophy; (1.) is that many Seniors on Social Security live on a fixed, no margin income. Many also have no pension to fall back on, there are no savings. Social Security is all they have. Any cuts would therefore be devastating. Limitations are unthinkable and fall right into the arguments one finds in the studies involving Bio-Ethics.
(2.) Entitlements, are just what they are, Entitlements! This is money I payed into the Social Security System, this money is my money, I worked for years to get this money. Now, because Congress has already defaulted on the debt that they owe the American people, they want to begin the gradual process of killing off the whole program. They remind me of a mess of cats running around the House and Senate floor trying to cover their stuff with Kitty Litter! I don’t give a Rats rear end where they get the money they owe the People, they need to get it, and get it now. First on their list should be their obligation to take care of the very people who built this country through out the Industrial Revolution!
Another problem that I have with these clowns, who are supposed to be running this country, is this cheap talk about “How something needs to be done about these Entitlements” Like its some kind of Welfare program, that most of us do not deserve. How dare you Hippo-Over eating Far Right Wing bureaucratic deadbeats who lied your way into office only to Screw the American People.
We know what your plan is, and we know how you plan to push it up our nose! First you talk it down, you in effect change the definition of Entitlement. You tie bar it into Welfare and then act as if I am gleaning the system. The next thing we know you are criminalizing the program, Oh this one was getting that, she was getting this, He was doing that. etc; etc; Now rules are made tightening qualifications, and the next thing you know half of the country who payed into Social Security no longer qualify to receive benefits. That’s what you did to General Assistance, Welfare, ADC, and currently Food stamps. You plan on doing the exact same thing to Social Security and Medicare. What? You think we are all stupid?
Meanwhile, here we have a bunch of Far Right Tea Party Zealots, who think that they have the answer to all the woes of the country. They want to shove their perception of politics down the throat of all of us. Listen, watch, pay attention!!!! They are saying that they have the answer. They are the responsible ones! Because they have so much wit! That obviously means we are a bunch of Nit-Wits! Under their perception of politics, The Minority Rules!!! Because they have all the answers….They are the responsible ones!!! Don’t believe me? Ask Rush Lembaugh…..Check with Shaun Hannady…..or Glenn Beck. they have all the answers too!
To the President, Congress, House and senate, Cuts in Social Security, or Medicare are in flat-out Unacceptable. That’s it….All there is to it…Case Closed!!!!
Have are great night………Pray for America!!!! She needs all the prayer she can get!
