Congress and the “financial experts” are now calling my Social Security and Medicare “entitlements” and want to either cut them back or take them away permanently.
WELL, THEY ARE RIGHT. THEY ARE ENTITLEMENTS AND I AM ENTITLED TO THEM BECAUSE I FUCKING PAID FOR THEM.
I am 75 years old, I will be 76 in Sept of this year, and have been working since I was 14 years old and I am still working to this day. When I first started working, I asked about the deduction for SSI and Medicare and was told that it was a SAVINGS plan implemented by the government and that I was FORCED to participate whether I wanted to or not. THERE AGAIN, I EARNED EVERY PENNY THAT I PAID INTO SSI AND MEDICARE.
Most of the years that I have worked, I have been self employed. That means that I not only paid the employee part, but I paid the employers part as well. THIS MEANS THAT IT IS MY MONEY AND NOT THE GOVERNMENTS.
The fact the you in congress, AND I mean both the Republicans and the Democrats, have mismanaged these funds, and used them for spending that they where never meant to be used for does not make them any less than mine.
If I had been allowed to keep this money and save or invest it myself, I would be in much better shape financially than you ever would have allowed.
My Social Security and my Medicare are called entitlements and treated as if you where doing me a favor by allowing me to have them.
MEDICARE AND SSI MAY BE ENTITLEMENTS AND I AM SURE AS SHIT ENTITLED TO THEM. JUST AS I AM ENTITLED TO THE MONEY IN MY SAVINGS ACCOUNT OR MY PIGGY BANK
KEEP YOUR FUCKING GREEDY HANDS OFF MY MONEY.
