SSD and Medicare

Do not cut social security and medicare. SSD is separate from FIT. We pay separately for SSD and Medicare through Paycheck Deductions just for these 2 programs. These are not an entitlement but an insurance type program that deducts our premiums from our paychecks. We pay for this and have earned our benefits. This money is not for use to run the Federal Government. No other insurance company would be allowed to do this to its clients. The funds for income tax to run the Federal Government are a separate deduction.

Republicans threaten Government Shutdown

The threat by some House Republicans that if they didn’t get want they would shutdown the gov’t sounded a lot like a tantrum and probably were meant to terrorize us into accepting what they were/are willing to give us. We are but serfs in their eyes and should be grateful to the lords, ladies, kings and queens that are gracious enough to let us have any scraps. Anything more is an entitlement.

Healthcare

Health insurance premiums are driven by the cost of healthcare . The actual cost of healthcare , ie the amount charged to patients and insurance companies, need to be addressed first. Then we need to address the for profit status of hospitals and providers so that the patient not stockholders come first.

Disparity between classes

See a great ex. of trickledown econ.Give big biz more money & tax breaks & they keep it for themselves @JudyWoodruff http://ow.ly/65Ob0. This article from Newshour talks about how little of what we, the backbone of the country, really receive from big biz. They offer incentives and rewards to management to keep our pay and benefits low so big biz can pay more to executives. They keep their mansions, cars, great education for theier children, and all the other perks while we the middle class struggle to keep our small homes. maybe 2 cars, educate our children. put balanced meals on the table, etc. Apparently Big Biz’s slice of the American dream is to small and the Middle Class slice is to big. This art. from Newshour is about how little of what we,the backbone of America,really receive from big biz.They offer incentives &rewards to mgmt. to keep our pay & benefits low so execs get paid more

Government; Separation of Church and State

Separation of church and state means it’s okay for leaders to have their own religious beliefs but they can’t incorporate them into laws. This protects everyone’s right to practice their religious beliefs without fear from the government or law.

Abortion

First, if we allow the government to control abortion, not only can they deny abortions they can force abortions. We must protect our right to have or not have children from government intervention.
Second, This bill basically allows only those with money to have a choice in abortion. Those without money are being forced to continue a pregnancy.
Third, abortion is a religious issue and the government needs to stop incorporating a particular religion’s beliefs into our laws.
When Iran, Iraq, or China treat their citizens like this we have a fit. Our soldiers are dying,fighting for human rights and religious freedom when these things are being threatened in their own country
