I have had the opportunity to listen to others voice their concerns regarding affordable healthcare, disability, and the raising of minimum wages. I listen attentively because I have already pointed out what others seem to ignore. The Affordable Healthcare business isn’t that darn affordable, applying for disability will give more health issues waiting, minimum wage has never been raised!!!
It’s a game… Once they give it watch everything doubles in prices so, many stay below the poverty line with every raise!
The middle class and small business owners suffer considerably with decisions. Trying to stay in a certain bracket in order to classified in one place or the other so you can qualify what they can afford.
The stories keep pouring in about how some insurance providers take you but then drop you. The horror stories about this isn’t being talked about.
I have to be frank about what I thought about … all of it,. I THOUGHT WHAT ARE WE SO EXCITED OVER??? We are going backwards with administration . The health insurance is a rip off it… It’s too high!!! If you had a decent nest egg you will be eating meat-less soups and a few crackers. I am not with what the government has been proposed as a good ideas. It’s not what is in our faces that will hurt us…it’s what’s on the back burning in the distant future. If budget crisis are everywhere and there are no secure places of employment degree or no degree. We are in some trouble!
And it blows my mind how people go along with stuff and applaud junk! There are some catches we are not catching.
The decisions that someone make either someone must cutback in order to make what can be affordable or go to work full throttle and pay the fine. I wasn’t impressed! On the minimum wage… I just want you think about this people… How are you getting a break when everything goes up the minute you get the break? Isn’t it funny how they always appear that they listening to the demands of the people and then the bottoms falls up… Increases… But this never seems to amaze me.
Filing for the disability in this country is almost a joke! I have told people of the struggles of filing when you are ill and the all foolishness to prove that you are ill with encyclopedia size files with medication and you still will have to see some of their quack physicians.
In fact, I know people who have gotten their disability by playing like they are mentally ill. When I see the struggles of what is right and wrong in this country. I know some of the government priorities federal and state… is jacked up! Some things this country tends to over look and come with those irritating patriotic rebuttals. Yet, our people are hurting and struggling and we need to fix it NOW… The system in this country is designed for you to fail. How can anyone remain debt free if there is always a way to fall into debt? We need some new blood in government. All the career politicians needs to go… especially in Illinois.
It’s the pits!
They haven’t made a different to me… All of them are people friendly during election time… Unless there is a freshness you wont get my vote no matter what party you represent. Comfortably and this lack of drive to help people today has already proven itself to me on my watch. Which way they voted doesn’t impress me. If you are for the people its time to come out from among them and be separated!

Let me share what turned me off about serving in the military because I had quite a few family members who retired nicely after staying for many years.
Although, I was determined to be a criminal and corporate attorney…If I had taken a interest… I saw how poorly our Veterans were treated after they had served. Our Veterans made sacrifices but didn’t get the treatment that they so exactly deserved.
I am so excited about this project and many more are going to follow! Don’t forget to pray for our Veterans!
I pray that the American people don’t turn deaf ears and blind eyes …to the threat against America.
In wake of 13th Anniversary of 9/11. I am a little bit leery about traveling to another country with all the unrest in the world!
Our lives won’t be the same after the dreadful day of 9/11 and unfortunately we can never forget that time in history!
Too much has been “downplayed”…. about the real threats. No one has to tell me we are still on “high alert”…
We live with threats more than ever…When beheading someone is a commercial break for the ISIS GROUP!
I have said this before 9/11 and I will repeat this again! I have always believed that “terrorist” cells where right here in the United States… being trained,educated and living among us. These cells I believe will be activated during certain religious times of the month. I don’t think for one minute the “terrorists” groups wont use women and children to be weapons and funnel weapons!
Preparation for our safety should remain under wise discretion. I think we will never be told just how bad it’s gotten and how bad it’s going to get.
We recently had this influx of stormy weather this summer. We saw the slow responses being without power for almost 5 days… I saw the unpreparedness of people during what we call a “mild “situation.
So, just imagine what it might be like if we were under another “terrorist”attack? We had a difficult time finding “ice” and food in the midst of summer… Gas stations were close and so on…
My point is…We better have our own personal plan in place and stop ignoring the threats!
Stop being so watered down without the truth and realities. We are hated… and it’s showing more than ever! Be mindful that the threats to us as Americans or to American hasn’t settle down since 9/11… And to be honest, who would really tell us the whole truth?
Americans haven’t been told the whole truth! Continue to be aware and pray for this country and those who have authority over us! MAY GOD BLESS AMERICA!
