Medicare destruction initiated by Trump, sounds like Paul Ryan. Mr. President feeds us “fake news” to enrich healthcare industry

“As long as I’m president, no one will lay a hand on your Medicare benefits,” President Donald Trump told the seniors at The Sharon L. Morse Performing Arts Center. He was celebrating the October, 2019 signing of his executive order to allegedly “protect and improve” the program. Most of the audience clapped, but some had fallen asleep, and they were wiser for it. Since he sauntered down the steps of […]

Jeff Bezos could go on Medicaid if he played it correctly, but the average working Jill can’t

Medicaid rules changed when President Barack Obama pushed through the Affordable Car Act (ACA) and he ensured that the very rich could join low-cost Medicaid, while the working class had to pay high medical expenses, either at work with private insurance or retired under Medicare. While I’m sure Jeff Bezos would never stoop his mightiness to rub elbows with regular folks on Medicaid, it is amazing that he could so […]

Federal Reserve is now big part of National Debt for bailing out banks; Social Security $$ not owed to us?

What government pretends to owe… The Social Security Trust Fund of some $2.8 trillion is often listed in charts – such as the one above – as part of the National Debt. This particular graphic, the latest available, is from the Federal Reserve, an institution that is part of the huge debt and is owed $2.465 trillion by taxpayers. The difference between the Social Security “debt” and the Fed debt […]

N Y Post can’t stand fact that worker earned a big pension while pub’s boss is worth $15,700,000,000

Retired NYC sanitation worker makes $285K a year from pension That New York Post headline made many folks angry. Do garbage collectors get pensions worth more than they deserve? Are evil unions behind this? Or dopey Dems? Or a PC still running only DOS? To illustrate their point, the newspaper published a photo, sort of artsy-fartsy, of a trash truck. That’s to show those readers, who live in gated communities, […]

Ryan thinks he is John Galt – defender of the rich, enemy of the poor, not a denizen of the swamp?

Ayn Rand’s novel, Atlas Shrugged, begins with a simple question: Who is John Galt? The answer comes in the last third of that 1957 book, where Galt emerges as the champion of capitalism and defender of Rand’s Objectivism philosophy, which has opposed: Child and Adult Care Food Program Federal Housing Assistance Food Stamps Head Start Low-Income Home Energy Assistance Program Medicare & Medicaid Nationalized Health Care School Lunch and Breakfast […]

If all you want for Christmas is your two front teeth, it’s time to borrow $6,400 or pay 1/3 price in India

If our politicians ever make the effort to visit the “little people” – those neglected voters, who don’t live in gated communities and suck gin in the Capitol – our selected leaders will see smiles without front teeth. And that is just the beginning of their constituents’ dental problems. Some 140 million Americans have no dental insurance, and for most who do pay premiums, the coverage won’t cover the cost […]

Some seniors will pay a 296% tax increase under “Deep State” deal with media and politicians

Remember the promise of a tax cut primarily for the middle class? For many Americans that will be a lie, and retired seniors will be hit the hardest, despite the attempted sleight of hand numbers game that “gives” you about double the standard deduction, but doesn’t mention the loss of personal exemptions. Even worse, the so-called reform means that a couple that used to itemize deductions above $12,700 (under 65) […]

A Philadelphia public school that beat the preps and the 1940 NYPD class that excelled with no legacies

Every high school class has organizers, those busy, enthusiastic souls who run for student council, plan proms and after they graduate, are drawn to suggesting alumni events. The latest test for me to remember classmate names was on Saturday night at Central High School’s 211th class’ 75th member birthday party. The original graduating class in 1959 had some 210 students; 46 have died. Ours was not the most remarkable class […]
