HYPOCRIT ! You have posted previously, numerous times, that people on Scocial Security and Medicare, who PAID into the system, were government leeches. What's the matter, sparkless? Are you getting closer to the age where YOU can collect, and now you have changed your mind?
Let's start out with some basics,here. Social security is a retirement program which would be fully funded if Congress hadn't allowed people who hadn't paid into it to receive disability payments. The Social Security Disability program should be removed from the retirement plan and treated like the welfare program it is. Second, Medicare is a program for people 65 and over. I believe we should provide health care to our senior citizens. Medicaid is the program that needs to be addressed by Congress. It is another welfare program that takes money from people who work and gives it to people like you that are too lazy to work for a living.
The people receiving Social Security Disability have paid into the system. SSI is welfare, Social Security Disability is NOT. What part of that don't you understand?
You've probably already collected ten times over what you paid in taxes. In my book, that's a handout,not a benefit. How about explaining to us why you are healthy enough to attend countless school board and council meetings, not to mention hosting a radio show, yet you can't, or should I say won't work?
Hypocrit ! Make sure you added up what you have put into Social Security, and then refuse your checks that come in after that amount.
Speaking of handouts, since you are so rich that you moved from one part of town to a more affluent part of town, and by your bragging on this board, bought many investment properties, what the heck are you doing getting in excess of $30,000 in handouts for college for your kid? It's OK for YOU to get a handout? What did you contribute to the College Bound Fund, sparkless? What about the bankruptcy notation on the assessors website that quickly dissapeared when it was discovered by posters on this board?
BTW, you lying pos, I have not attended a council meeting in 3 years. As for the school board meetings, the only time you showed up was to push for knuckle-dragging union hack jobs for a school that was not needed or wanted.
