Somehow "amnesia" has occurred in the whole Republican Party, & they forget that we have had MEDICARE in America for at least 50 years, especially used by Senior Citizens, to keep them healthy in their (golden) retirement years. AND I am sure the Republicans have also conveniently forgotten: the Senior Citizens had PAID INTO the system for many decades, (payroll deductions) in order to finally be able to receive it at retirement.
BUT, like a THIEF in the NIGHT, the Republicans want to get into your Retirement Benefits, & STEAL them, & put all that money into their OWN private Swiss Bank Accts, --- so (1) they won't have to pay taxes on it & (2) it is all hidden offshore, so WE can't easily Get It Back. I am sure that BOTH of those are violations of Federal Law. But since when does THAT have any influence on Republicans? (Lying, cheating & stealing is their favorite hobby)
In the past, Congress used to "borrow" money from the Social Security Fund (without our consent or knowledge) --- to pay for various Wars and other super-expensive projects. They'd put an "invisible IOU" into the SS acct, -- & like true-blue Americans, they always PAID IT BACK. /// BUT in the Modern Era, with greedy crooks in the US Banking Industry (Wall Street) & some in Congress --- they just did NOT pay it back, & now they want to "cover up" their massive THEFT, -- by creating a financial crisis -- or just "discontinue the whole Social Security Program" so we don't notice. But ---- GOTCHA.
(P.S. -- At 9/11, all the computers were burnt up, which showed -- a massive Deficit in our US Budget -- of Billion$ -- & Trillion$ of Dollar$.) (cover-up).
