I would like the Republicans who shout about the sanctity of life for the unborn, can then say we should allow the wave of this virus to roll across the country and the elderly because they were “on their last legs” anyway.
Republicans are now openly suggesting that we should get rid of the elderly because they are not productive and “on their last legs”.
Can I say this about all Republicans?Yes, because I have yet to hear any Republicans speak in opposition to this proposal.
The name of their policy is “The Final Solution”. Final in that it gets rid of anyone who is not employed or in good health therebye freeing more money for the one percent even if they have worked their whole lives to make this country great.
If you are an average American worker, a vet, a homeless person, on Social Security, on Medicare, on Medicaid, a school child, a doctor, or a nurse; you don’t count
Look at the question a different way.Who can donate large sums of money to most Republican and some Democratic politicians?Those are the people that count.
If all those people who don’t count (you and I) vote, will Republicans ever win an election?
Putting a finer point on it, allowing this virus to kill those in nursing homes, on Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid (essentially the elderly, the poor and in need) will be great for one political party. The Republicans have announced that this is their policy publicly and often. The Republican Party has not denounced these policies.
Remember Wisconsin and how the Republicans tried to steal that election by endangering the lives of the citizens by making the citizens choose between voting and the virus.
Are either incompetent or hoping that this virus will kill off enough elderly so that Social Security and Medicare can be eliminated. We, the people, are not as important as their political donors, corporations and wealthy friends. This is the conservative Republican’s “Final Solution”.
If you, your children, your parents or your grandparents receive the benefits of Social Security, you are a Socialist.
On August 14,1945, President Franklin Delano Roosevelt signed the Social Security Act passed by Congress.It was a social insurance program designed to pay retired workers age 65 or older a continuing income after retirement.It also covers disability and survivors insurance.
It is an earned benefit. It was an insurance program where workers, through and with their employers, paid a premium to cover their expenses after retirement.It was intended to be like modern day car, home, or health insurance.
Unfortunately Congress treats the fund as its own personal “petty cash”.
What is more unfortunate, bordering on criminal is that the cap on employer and the individuals contribution is $128,400.That’s correct; if your income is $1,000,000 you will not be required to contribute to Social Security on $871,600 of your income.
And lastly is the fact that the security systems for our elderly, disabled and survivors exist no longer.Children cannot or will not take care of their parents.The state and churches are no longer taking full responsibility.It is highly unlikely that they can or will be able to step up.
