Should congressional representatives be treated as criminals or as sickoes?
The American patient (patient being government and citizens) is sick and dying, while some of the members of the “medical” team (aka congressional representatives) are attempting to prematurely unplug those in dire need. That’s the metaphor here.
It is inexcusable and completely unacceptable that those elected to represent citizens are abandoning their responsibility by “defaulting” to let the patients die because we have too many of them?
What should infuriate millions of Americans is that this government is risking timely payment to those on Social Security who needs those checks as if their lives depend upon them, because they do.
This is a breach of contract with Americans. It is intolerable. To many, the angst is torture.
It is not out of the realm of reason to want to round up Congressional representatives and put them under arrest and offer them up for a trial for crimes against citizens? They cannot be permitted to be derelict and get away with it.
Booting them out of office is not enough. They deserve public disgrace and worse if it their motives can be proven to be subversive to the American Constitution and We the People. The behavior of Congress is out of hand and unAmerican.
Consider the following:
- How has Congress treated 800,000 loyal government workers?
- How has Congress treated seniors and needy persons who are on Social Security and Medicare?
- How has Congress treated Americans in need of affordable healthcare?
- How has Congress treated veterans and soldiers and their families?
- How has Congress treated teachers, emergency and law enforcement professionals?
- How has Congress treated the American economy?
The answers are uniformly negative. Bring charges against Congress.
“Yes, the debt fight could delay Social Security checks.
By Jim Tankersley, Published: October 15
There’s a theory pinging around that says no matter what happens with the debt ceiling, Social Security beneficiaries will keep getting their checks on time. Social Security is a trust fund that brings in more money than it pays out, so the theory holds that even if the United States can’t legally borrow more money, benefits must continue until the trust fund runs out.
Evidence strongly suggests that theory is wrong.
