<quoted text>TOI, I don't believe that's the reason. I expected something to be done when Gabby Giffords, the Congresswoman, was shot, but nothing was proposed. I was surprised.
If that is the Gov't.'s intent, that was a perfect opportunity and a good reason, yet nothing was even proposed.
I think it's a complex problem that has to have some effort made to try and lessen the incidents, but NOBODY really knows what to do.
These proposals were made after consultations with Police Chiefs, Parents of the Victims, and Experts in the Field, as well as Gun Rights Advocates and Representatives and Mental Health Experts. They probably won't help the situation, but what else can be done? Nobody knows! But, the majority of People in this Nation are demanding "something" be done.
Frankly, I think the expanded Background checks are the most important part of the Proposals and might help the situation, if anything in the Bill helps.
In all the talk about this issue on here, I did not read the first suggestion of anything that might help stop some of this senseless killing, so what makes anybody think our Leaders know what to do to stop it?
Whatever might really help, we don't have the money to do, right now. And you don't want the taxes raised on the Wealthy , so that we might have the money to do it. So, what do you expect our Leaders to do?
And if you give everybody a gun, all you'll have is killing in the streets, whenever somebody has a dispute with somebody else....and innocent People getting shot in the crossfire! So, what do you want done that makes any sense?
That is exactly the situation we have now.Dont misunderstand me I think the wealthy should have to pay taxes like everyone else,if not the burden falls on the "middle class ".I think everything is so screwed up it can never be changed.Its not Obamas fault,he just walked into a bad situation.In the meantime,there are people struggling everyday just to barely get by.If the wealthy had their way , they would just starve us out of existence

<quoted text>TOI, that's what has been reported on the News and told by Congressmen in interviews for several years, everytime they start trying to change Social Security.
The Republicans have always wanted to do away with Social Security and Medicare since the day they were implemented.

I've posted several Links telling what they really want to do with the 3 Trillon Plus Dollar Reserve Fund. Invest it in the wealthiest Wall Street Stocks and drive the Stock price up and the Wealthy will sell them and make an enormous profit, the stock will fall and the money will be gone.
I agree with what you are saying totally,and that is probably what will happen.So they have the seniors trapped into a situation with no way out .When I turned 65 I did not want Medicare, because I had good Insurance,but was forced to take it because of my age.This is not freedom. They force you on it and then want to take it away.Does this make sense? I also planned for my future with pension plan & 401K but the cost of living increased so much that is is out of control.My Medicare premiums for A,B,C&D are &400 and my medicine costs are $350 a mo.that alone is a large chunk of my SS check They make you take it then make you pay for it.does this resemble freedom?

I can't disagree with your Post, except for one thing...I think that we're in some kind of transitional phase and that it will eventually get straightened. I think it will have to, if the Country is to survive and I literally mean the Country, itself.
I don't know how long it will take or even if it will happen in my and your Lifetime, but I do think it will happen.

I've read stories about when we went from an Agricultural Economy to a Manufacturing Economy...the Industrial Revolution...and something like that is what I think is happening now.
America is resilent and if this doesn't work, at some point we will have to change course and go to something that does work. This all started in the 1980's and it seems to me that it's only gotten worse since then.
But, sooner or later, somebody who can change it , will...I believe. They're going to have to! I just don't know when it will dawn on Washington, what we out here in Main St. America already know. If we could elect the right People to Congress, it would speed things up, for sure.

Do you still have your Private Insurance? I thought that Medicare was your Primary Ins.& when you had Private Insurance, it could be used as your Medicare Supplement Ins., since Medicare only pays 80% and your Private Insurance would pick up the remaining 20%. Am I wrong?

To my fellow Dunlapian, I give you a "Thumbs Up", on your post. We both need more of this attitude in our County.
BTW, did you check out that local Dunlap topix article on "Civil War History", there was a site that had a audio book that H. Camp wrote about our Sequatchie Valley. I believe even old Willard would like to read it.

My private Ins would not convert to a Medicare supplemental ,so I had to purchase a supplemental which is $170 a mo

I don't think anything is going to save us.Our country has to stay out of war for awhile first,and that's not happening as long as Halliburton is making a fortune off of it.Next we have to do away withe EPA, and drill our own oil.Then we have to create jobs here instead of with other countries.Social Security has been robbed for too many other things than what it was designed for.That needs to stop.Unemployment should not come out of SS, but should be paid by the employersAll of this would be a start

With cost of living continually rising and then the gov garnishing daughters check I don't see any relief. I will soon have to take on a part time job in addition to my full time job to make ends meet

Unlike most Libs, we working people pay taxes for these things. What makes us mad is that they take those taxes and give them to lazy bums that have never worked a day in their life instead of fixing those roads and bridges that are in such a state of disrepair now.
Let me clue ya, "we working people" include members of both parties, and "we working people" pay taxes for those things as well. What makes us mad is that they take those taxes and give them to oil companies, mega-ag multi-nationals, and Wall Street bankers in the form of gifts and subsidies, and they start wars of choice which cost trillions of dollars and untold lives.
