WOW two posts I’m on a roll today huh?
Anyway, I wanted to take a few minutes and talk about the BIG US issue right now. The possibility of the budget not being passed and the US defaults on their loans. Now I did just watch the press conference the president gave about the issue. Now I think he was trying to get the American people to hound their Congressmen about passing it. It might work, it might not.
Now I’m going to be affected directly by any issue with this passing as Silver gets disability from both the VA and the feds. Now one of the things a few of the congressmen have suggested to make “cuts” is to get rid of a few of the programs that give people money. Well… to get rid of medicare and Social Security would hurt many people as the people who rely on it are going to get screwed. The government created a situation where people could lean on them and live the rest of their lives knowing they’d have food and medical care no matter what. You cannot take that from the people and expect everyone to be OK with it.
What if it was your parent’s, cousin, sister, etc who was going to lose their benefits because they “people who know best” want to get rid of it just to make sure they can pay their bills they “racked up”? Personally I’d be more worried about my own country’s people that fighting multiple wars all over the world and feeding hungry in other countries. Do I think that we should ignore the hunger in the world…no. However programs in our country should come before aid to anywhere else.
The “cuts” should come from external sources not the internal ones.
Come -ON- US government… get your act together!
