In November of 2008, I went on my merry way to my local precinct to vote for "not John McCain".I heard "A chicken in every pot, a car in every garage, sun shine and roses for all times!". Little did I know that, in a few short weeks, I would be financially ruined. I wasn't alone - there were millions of us. I had no job, no expectation of a job, was in debt up the yin yang, my house was devalued by the bank, they froze the equity line as well, our excellent credit rating took a dramatic down turn and the 401K all but disappeared. We were not alone.
Now, they tell me the economy is picking up. Well, not in my corner f the world! Even if interest rates are low - no one is lending. Selling the house that still has zero equity isn't going to happen soon enough. Over fourteen million more of the People are on welfare, medicaid and food stamps. Countless millions have simply stopped looking for work and are not counted in the 8.3% unemployment numbers.
I couldn't find a job so I took early social security. Since we file jointly, the IRS taxed my less than $10,000 annual penance at 85% per Bill Clinton's wisdom in 1985. That is taxing the same money twice! Once when I paid it through a payroll tax and again when they paid it back to me as social security. I call that "money laundering"! That is hardly an entitlement!
Now, they give me health care; because they are concerned with my health? I think not. No matter what these career politicians say; we still pay, pay pay. I don't appreciate that.
So, will I vote for Obama again? Absolutely NO! Will I vote for any career politician looking to return to Washington? NO.
IF YOU DON'T THINK YOU ARE OVER TAXED AND UNDERREPRESENTED; ASK YOUR REPRESENTATIVE TO VOTE FOR THE REPEAL OF OBAMA CARE AND WATCH THE RESPONSE!
