I wish I had the money that is being wasted by the candidates that are running for president. With all the travel expenses, set up expense, advertising, and the people who travel with each one of them, it just seems such a waste of resources. And don’t get me started with the amount of money that was wasted on the impeachment trials. Momma Said, “OMG!!!”
If the candidates want to help the American people why don’t they take all that money and put it in a fund to help people who can’t afford insurance or their prescriptions? Government has wasted the Social Security Fund and people have worked their whole lives so they can retire and government just keeps raising the retirement age. How do they expect people to keep working into their 70’s before they can draw out money that should be there for them?
The government keeps extending our retirement age expecting us to drop dead before we can draw out money from Social Security. That is just more for them to find a way to waste. The rules keep changing every year and it does not benefit the working person. We elect these people to look out for us and all they do is find new ways to beat us. Momma Said, “They are all crooks.”
Mom worked for years and was also a mother and head of household for years. She looked forward to the time she could draw her Social Security benefits. When she turned 62 she filed to get her benefits and after she had to pay Medicare, all she could draw was $87 a month. I felt so sorry for her, it just seemed she had worked her whole life and it boiled down to a check for $87. And then five years later she passed away.
