I have the greatest dog in America, for sure, however she has one annoying habit:
She is given many things, but always seems to get more than was given. No she is
not a typical Schnauser.
Being today is election day I realize it is a great day to write this blog, which I have wanted to write for almost a year. After having breakfast a thought came to me and
I am moving on it. Who besides my beloved dog takes more than she is given or makes me bend the rules for what she wants: food, a walk, a car ride, my dinner, etc. The other culprits who live this way are our Congressmen or women and the Senators. Also a select few who work for the government and know how to take some
trinkets from the monies that flow through our Capital.
The elected officials have a different modus operandi to accomplish their desires. It is called “official business of those who run the United States of America”. The three
main things are their pensions, their healthcare and the right to ignore any of the bills we have to live with. Example of their position: We, the people, have Medicare
and they have private care; we have Social Security and they have real; security with
their pensions. When it comes to the law(s) they make we must follow to a tee. The only thing they do with a tee is put a golf ball on it to hit it further. These three bonuses are for the people of this country and the people who run this country. The later group
would be fine if they were fair and equal with ours; but they are not.
It is my contention that the three benefits are one of the several reasons they seek
the jobs of congressman or senator. Medicare is always being adjusted down and becomes more expensive over the years. Private care stays the same or better.
When the government is short of money they always think of cutting social security
which belongs to the people who paid in with after tax dollars. Their real security is
a benefit which is not touched, as social security is, when anything, including a crisis arises.
The last benefit is the “Do As I Say Rule”,(butnotasIdo!) It is easier to make laws that
would not affect those making them happen, and now you know why. Make the elected people lose their benefits and live with ours and half or more of these public servants would quickly quit their posts.
A little side note that I found interesting! The people and companies that work for the
Government owe the IRS over $3.5 billion for their 2015 taxes. Our elected officials also owe the Government a pile of money from not paying their taxes on time.
Better than all of the above the Government owes the seniors in this country a plethora of interest on their accumulated social security savings that probably hasn’t
been paid for decades. Oh well, easy come and easy go!
ARE YOU READY TO PUT YOUR FOOT DOWN!!! IS IT TIME TO STOP THE SHORTAGE OF MONEY WE PAID INTO OUR SOCIAL SECURITY SAVINGS WITH
AFTER TAX MONEY. SHOULD WE BE WATCHING THE PEOPLE WHO ARE
Well, if your ready send me some ideas of what you think has happened and how
we should go about fixing it. Together we can “right the ship”
