I know this forum is not for political discussions, and I consider this post to be one of WARNING rather than political.
Community Service Employment Program by more than 50%. This will mean that THOUSANDS of poor seniors will lose the jobs that these organizations provide to help them eat, pay rent and get their medications. By the way, these wages are at the minimum wage level.
We just recieved a heads up warning at my wife's place of employment about this. Their organization supports over 16,000 destitute seniors by training them for skills, helping them into jobs with various organizations, usually community type organizations and paying them a wage while they are in the programs. It is not very much money, ALL of these seniors actuall qualify for the Earned Income Tax Credits that are reserved for the very very poor. Think about that now, IF her organization get a hit in funding of 50%, that means that over 8,000 seniors will be tossd back out into the streets, under bridges and going hungry and without medications.
This, my friends, is what happens when people allow politicians like the 112th Congress into power. They don't give a tinker's damn about these folks, (some who do not have homes, but get their mail at General Delivery) and only care about the wealthy and the corporate welfare slugs.
Damn, this nation is going to hell in a hand basket and the Republicans, Democrats, DINOS and Obama are driving the train.
