So being on a fixed income is no fault of yours. It is someone else's fault.<quoted text>
You know what........apparently, you don't live on a fixed income like some of us do. EVERYTHING is going up in price.....not just a little, but a lot, expecially in the last few years. This Obamacare thing is going to create a monster. I know people over 60 yrs. old that are losing their jobs because of new tecnology. Then, they try to trick consumers by using the same size packageing, but what is inside is less or smaller. Things are made of cheaper quality but cost more. Social Security is a joke when it comes to giving a COL of living. They said the COL was not going up and I say that is B...S...! Anybody with half a brain knows the cost of living is going out of sight. Obama is clueless and doesn't care. There is excessive waste in the government. Somebody needs to get a handle on this mess. I can't believe we ,the taxpayers, are funding some of the most stupid things. So, you think we are doing better, huh? Well if you are that is great, but that does not apply to the middle class. We are getting screwed, big time!
Having said all that, I still believe this is a great country. I just wish we could get rid of the liars in Washington.
What does new technology replacing positions have to do with Obama's healthcare plan. That happens all the time. Unless you still think we have livery stables, stage coaches, the pony express and all the industry associated with horse travel. I suppose Obama and Democrats are responsible for that change too.
I am in the middle class, along with all my fellow employees. If you are on a fixed income, are you in the middle class?
To your last statement I agree, we just probably differ on who those liars are. In my opinion they live in both parties and I am not too concerned what their party affiliation is. There are about 10 Democrats and Republicans currently serving in Congress that this country would be better off without. They would be a start, but it isn't just government that needs cleaning up. We as a country are dumbing down and replacing sense with a love of a past that never was. People in this country are embracing a false reality to establish what they see as a return to historical values but is really the destruction of the actual values this country was founded on. We are not and have never been a theocracy. We are not and have never been a country where being afraid and hiding in a bunker was the answer to our problems. That is what many want to do. They just fail to realize their efforts are not democratic. Don't follow the Constitution. Would strip away the individual rights they claim to defend faster than any government ever did. And would establish a theological dictatorship. On the upside, these people have literally destroyed the one party that might have gotten them where they wanted to go.
