Poverty Increasing Among Retirees - Yahoo! Finance
Very sad indeed.
Probably another thread that will go unnoticed.
Because we know that gay sex is FAR more important a topic.
God help us all!
How many of these people were forced to contribute 12.4% of their income to SS instead of being allowed to save and invest it for themselves?
It's really not a surprise to me that people that have been taxed so heavily via income tax (fed and state), SS, Medicare, etc, don't have the means to support themselves in retirement.
Medical expenses bankrupt the elderly, so what do the CON$ blame?....Social Security, of course.
Get rid of the Affordable Care Act and screw the elderly, it's their fault their health fails with age!
Let's not forget that Seniors are forced into Medicare when they retire, even though they have private health insurance.
Let's not forget that government continues to cut reimbursements for the elderly.
Let's not forget that more PCP Doctors are refusing to take on more Medicare or Medicaid patients. They can't break even with this payer source.
Big fucking deal. This "boomer" has already spent many years in poverty. In a lot of ways, the best times of my life. What's to fear? Bring it on. And I survived without suckling the teat. I'd rather eat beans, pasta, and rice bought with my own meager earnings than gnaw on a government filet du mignon.
Um, filet mignon???? I mean, sure I can go with the beans, pasta and rice bought with my own money vs government steak, but filet mignon?....please don't make me choose....I'm sooo weak....
LOL. It's a metaphor.
Posting while drunking last night. Now I'm posting while hanging.
That's one of my favorite avatars btw.
Well you gotta give credit where credit is due...
The focus of the WH has been gay issues and reproduction issues...
You know the real important stuff.
The deficit,the debt,unemployment,housing,the economy...
Well why bother.
MSNBC they don't even talk about this anymore.
Their focus is on getting Obama elected again...
Every show,it's attack,attack,attack, Romney and the GOP....
