I'm a little sick and tired of all the tax dollars plus interest I've paid to Medicare, which I won't get at anywhere near the same level because it's going to have to be cut. Funny how GOP talks about not paying for other people's health care, yet not only do I pay for other people's Medicare, and get nothing back, same happens with social security. Then there's Medicaid. Don't mind helping the poor get health insurance, but not to the point where I have to pay interest on doing so the rest of my life. In Virginia, I have to save for teachers and state workers' pensions, who get to retire at 55 with 80% of their salaries, yet teachers and state workers don't save for my retirement, and no one I know in the private sector will be retired at 55. Funny how our GOP governor and elected officials dodge this issue whenever its brought up. Glad to have DoD, but need it a lot less now that cold war is over. Gov't bureaucrats were too stupid to respond to Phoenix memo, and only implement measures through TSA after Al Qaeda has already tried them. Don't feel any safer since Bush created these massive bureaucracies. I have friends from college in Northern Virginia who work at these agencies and they are the most cushy jobs ever, with fewer actual responsibilities than the lady who empties the wastebasket in my office everyday. She works hard, gets in early, and never complains. I'd rather pay taxes to help her than for more useless securitycrats in DC. I use highways, which account for less than 1% of Fed budget. I think I visited a national park, so there's that. I think I use something around 1.27% of the money I send to Washington, and I live modestly in a modest city.
