  • Social Security is Called Entitlements?????

    Just got this in an email and felt it needed to be shared:::

    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...home to bin Laden...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 them 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?

    We have many adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.

    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?

    Hey Lisa! Yeah isn't it great?? How wonderful that our government is once again sticking the needle in the people's arm.

    There is so much corruption in government I stopped voting 10 years ago. Sounds stupid I know but after you vote for any of these clows it seems they always do the wrong things, get caught in som scandal or whatever. Government sure has gotten ugly and dirty and lost a lot of respect with me.

      The debate over where to set the bar for Social Security age rages on, reports Bankrate. A new Bank of America survey found that most rich individuals want it increased, but the fallen middle class, lost in the chasm of economic downturn, has cried foul.

        I think as the topic suggests, it's never late to participate in the debate. As too many people thinks that our govt is not providing the much of facilities we might need and deserve, as most of us are not getting it right even after working so long. While govt always looks to aid others, which actually we deserve the most as paying taxes and duties to country.
