Medicare and Social Security are not entitlements!

I agree. I'm not opposed to helping those who need it short term but it seems most make it a way of life, not realizing or caring about the effect it has on the economy.


Quoting owl0210:

The elderly and disabled should be the only ones truly entitled to benefits.

If you look at how health is distributed in this country, it makes sense. The wealthiest people (the 1%) are wealthy of the sweat of others, not due to their own hard work. If these people paid living wages and medical, this wouldn't be an issue.

You sound very bitter...

Quoting NNB:

Yes Seriously, these people seriously think it is ok to sit on huge amounts of money when there are others starving and dieing, not because they wont work, but majority of people can't find a job, work minimum wage, 40 + hours a week or more and still can't make ends meet. I have no room for the rich. They are disgusting greedy people, if the government didn't tax so high and CORPORATIONS paid more of their tax then things would be better for the poor!

Quoting TeamTARDIS:

Why is that a bad thing? Seriously? Leaning on one group to fund another is never a good idea. Many if the wealthiest families are leaving the USA because of this practice, so when they are gone who are they going to take from next?

Quoting TeamTARDIS:

So taking more money from the rich to give to the poor? Typical.

So wait, people who work hard and get ahead thru sacrafice and risking their lives in some cases aren't entitled to keep their money? They should share it with people who didn't work hard and get ahead?

Hey honey, join the service, work your ass off, use your GI bill to go to college while working 45 hours a week. WAIT to have kids, get a job work 50 and 60 and 70 hour work weeks and then YOU CAN get ahead too!  My Father worked 50 or more hours a week for 50 YEARS you can keep your goddamned hands off of his money. He earned it. It isn't yours to take and use. He is in his 80's and STILL feeding people like you who think a 40 hour work week is a lot......

The rich aren't going to go bankrupt by paying higher taxes once a year. I think Robin Hood did a great thing. He took from the greedy rich sheriff of Nottingham to give to the poor and peasants.

So if I make $150,000 a year and pay $30,000 in taxes why is it on for my neighbor to make $500,000 and pay only $35,000 in taxes? Shouldn't he pay way more?

my father worked his ass off, he OWNED his OWN business, made HIMSELF rich, NO ONE else.  

every year we would vacation at least 4 weeks out of the year, disney always, an overseas vacation for another week, and the other two weeks we would travel within the US on 2-3 night vacations, wherever we wanted to.

he busted his ass, to make himself rich.  then he got into politics. 

if you bust your ass to make someone else rich, that is your issue, but i certainly dont want to pay for you to sit on your ass, because you chose to mooch off the govt

Quoting NNB:

So Working your ass off is the kind of life you want? Do you really think that we NEED to have every dam person working every hour god sends to make things function... no, it's all profit, while you're slaving away you're making some one else rich! Cool!

And, most of the people on these assistants are working hard but can't make ends meet, due to tax and unnecessary high prices.

Quoting AJsMom81507:

because some of work our asses off to have the money we have, it's not our fault that others are so effin lazy or didnt manage their money properly when they were able.

sorry,  my father died he reached eligible age for SSI & Medicare, but i can damn well tell you he didnt need it.  he worked his ass off to provide the life we had, and when he died, he didnt leave multi millions, but he had plenty to live at least another 40+ years with no help.

my father came from a very poor family, but he built himself up from the ground up.  NO help from anyone

If there are more people in the wagon then there are people working to pull it, it's not going anywhere.
