Seniors Have A Target On Their Backs

Closing Thought–18Aug20

If you are over 65 years of age and a Trump supporter I have a question for you.

WHY?

He has done NOTHING since elected that would show any support for the elderly and their lives.

In two days Trump has crapped all over the seniors of this country…..

President Donald Trump on Thursday said he’d block new funding for the US Postal Service to limit efforts to expand mail-in voting, which he has claimed — without evidence — benefits Democrats.

“Now they need that money in order to make the post office work so it can take all of these millions and millions of ballots,” he said in an interview with Fox Business Network, adding that if it didn’t get the money, “that means you can’t have universal mail-in voting, because they’re not equipped to have it.”

Trump walked these comments back at an evening press briefing, saying, “If the bill isn’t going to get done, it means the post office isn’t going to get funded.”

I have been watching the antics around our seniors….basically because I am one I do not want any of my livelihood fucked with by this lying POS we have as president.

Better pay attention or your retirement life will be screwed and you as well…..

As the White House scrambles to contain the political backlash sparked by President Donald Trump’s latest threat to defund Social Security if reelected in November, one progressive advocacy group said Thursday that Trump’s long history of attacking the New Deal program means he should be taken at his word—and diligently opposed—when he openly states his intention to “terminate” the system’s revenue stream.

AS the 85th anniversary approach there is one thought and only one……”NO Damn Politician Should Be Allowed To Attack Social Security”……

When President Franklin Roosevelt signed Social Security into law 85 years ago today, he expressed hope that the program would offer Americans a “measure of protection” from the “hazards and vicissitudes of life.” True to FDR’s vision, Social Security has protected workers from some of the costliest hazards and vicissitudes of life—including loss of income from retirement, disability, and the death of a family breadwinner.  This year, though, Americans have faced “hazards and vicissitudes” unseen for one hundred years—a deadly global pandemic and the resulting economic fallout.  Now, as Social Security continues to provide basic financial security to 68 million Americans during this tumultuous time, the program itself needs protection.  Not only are Social Security’s resources strained by the pandemic; the program’s opponents seek to undermine and eventually dismantle it amid a national crisis.  

Social Security is more crucial today than ever before. Employer-provided pensions have all but disappeared.  Income inequality rages.  Retirement savings are historically low while the cost of growing old has soared.  Most seniors depend on Social Security for the majority of their income.  Without Social Security, 40% of elderly Americans would live in poverty.

Are you seniors willing to screw yourself because of your hatred for “immigrants”…..if so you people are more stupid than I thought!

For God’s Sake….Learn Stuff!

Pay Attention!

  1. Same deal here, with Boris. He has made it clear that he wished all the people my age would just die of Covid-19, so he could save money on pensions and medical treatments.
    Best wishes, Pete.
