Looks as if we seniors will just have to bend over more for the federal government!
Next will be the Jim Jones cool-aide drinks!
Our useless govenment needs to pay back the money they stole from S.S.

Well Lamar is really going down much faster than you all think. No SS offices now a drive to LaJunta or Las Animas. Also ust received a notice from High Plains Clinic that they will no longer treat Veterans. Their contract has not been renewed. Now they will all have to go to Denver, the Springs, where? Could this be they screwed up the new building or what. Great just burn the town down.
As far as our useless government (the party of no, GOP)yep, keep cutting what the people need and give it to the corporate fascists. What a joke.

Exactly how often do you need to visit the SS office? It's not like they're making you go pick up your check. Socialism hurts, stop your whining.

So you are saying that the people collecting SS should just stop collecting SS. You are just pissed that you can't get on the government dole. Maybe you haven't tryed to make the phone call to SS and wait forever on hold. So because you can't collect it is "socialism". You are the problem.

I'm the problem because I don't collect SS? You are apparently proud to be "on the government dole". People like you are probably going to suck the system dry long before I reach SS age. Enjoy spending my hard earned tax dollars, b**ch.

Apparently you don't realize how SS works, you pay for the next ones inline for it and so on. And I hate to disappoint you but I am NOT on SS, disability, Medicare or Medicaid. And for your information Veterans need all they can get. And if we are "sucking" it dry it's because of people like you not working. Yes you not working and sitting on the computer all day calling people bitches. You are just angry that you aren't "sucking" it up.
