I received the email from AARP wherein they now want us to tell our leaders not to mess with our Social Security benefits as a part of the defecit reduction program studies.
Where was AARP on assisting in increasing in the defecit by throwing its support to the passage of the massive Health Care bill? The AARP was backing this plan, and pushing down our throats - that's where the AARP was, and now they want our help in making sure this power corrupted government doesn't take money out of our pockets by cutting benefits.
We are going to have our access to quality care slashed when the Health Care bill is fully implemented. We will be paying more taxes for 4 years before the first dime in benefits are paid. The Government will be telling our hospitals, doctors and care givers what they can do, and what they cannot do before any benefits are paid, but the tax dollars will be collected.
We told the AARP that this was going to happen, they didn't listen. Now, they come to us again, telling us how the Government is going to make cuts in our benefits so they can pay for their foolishness in programs to support people who have not earned the right.
So yes, we must tell our Senators to leave our benefits alone, again. We must tell our Congressmen and women to leave our benefits alone, again. We must tell them that this is not a gift from the government to the people. We, and millions who will never live to collect these benefits, paid it in. Government misappropriated the money, mis-managed the money, And now, they want us to give them more.
Tell your representatives no, and then tell the AARP to listen to us the next time we speak on a subject that deals with the government and its programs spending our money.
