The Rising Costs of…Everything
Is anyone concerned about the rising costs of health care? The rising costs of EVERYTHING? I am not an advocate of socialized medicine. It’s the last thing I want for our country. Just one more step toward having Mr. Imposterama as a dictator, which is what he wants to be, in my opinion. Kinda like that Gaddafi guy in Libya. I saw today that he launched his $1,000,000,000.00 (that’s one billion dollars!) presidential campaign. Gaaaahhhhh!!! And just for the record: I’m not voting for him!
Two family members went to the doctor’s office in the last four days. (This is NOT a riddle.) The one that went today came home with a bill of $149. For an office visit. He went to Wally World for his prescriptions which totaled $130+. Since when does cough syrup ring up at $125? Can somebody tell me? What are they putting in cough syrup? Gasoline?
Rick goes to the grocery store for one item. In the line before him is a “minority” couple who bought a basket load of junk food: Little Debby’s, chips, Cokes, etc. About $40 of junk food. She pulls out the Lone Star card to pay, and her companion asks, “Does that card have enough on it to pay for that?” She yells for everybody to hear, “This blanketyblank card SHOULD have $875 on it! It better have enough to pay for this blankblankblank!” I don’t know about you, but I’ve never had $875 in my monthly budget to spend on food. Ever.
So, I’m thinking that I’ll write somebody in my Texas congress, and tell them what they should do with my tax dollars. I’m going to recommend that they cut the monthly Lone Star card to, say, $500 a month, and the card will only buy things like milk, eggs, flour, sugar, potatoes, fresh vegetables and fruit, hamburger meat and chicken, and bread. Give the card to people who REALLY qualify for help, like the disabled and the elderly, and no cards to illegals. Anybody else wanting a free handout gets to pick up trash on our highways for minimum wage. Make them earn their way in life like the rest of us.
Any other ideas?
Maybe the taxpayers should run the government; WHAT A NOVEL IDEA!
