I thought it was the government that was draining household coffers, not the other way around. I know a woman that gets a little more than $600/month from social security, her property taxes are $6,100. Her SS check pays her property taxes which subsidize the lives of teachers, cops, firemen and more. Not enough left for her to pay for supplemental medicare insurance.<quoted text>
And why should the real taxpayers in this country care about those who drain the government coffers to subsidize thier lives, all the while crying for more but contributing "NOTHING"!
She was a real taxpayer for most of her adult life and still pays real taxes. Don't blame people for how the governnment wastes our money.
