"Obama said today he can't guarantee that Social Security checks will go out after Aug. 2, unless Congress agrees to increase the $14.3 trillion debt ceiling." David Jackson, USA TODAY

Sounds like this county's getting ready to see some hard times.

Is that a shock? America enables more people to not work, and to depend solely on the system. Solution is to let those that cannot survive, fall to the waste side. Those that have worked, and are dependent upon Social Security and Medicare receive far less than those that never worked. Its the disability check that should receive revamping as well as the Food stamp program. Its time to cut the hand-outs OUT. Is this a radical concept? Its either get the over fed rats off the ship or sink with them.

take out the welfare and free assistance to illegal immigrants! As far as disabilty checks goes. It should only be available to those who HAVE paid into the system.
