Media ignores real threat to seniors
There is absolutely no doubt now that the mainstream media has an agenda, and that agenda is to ensure that Barack Obama is re-elected president.
If a Republican president had done half the mischief that Obama has done, you could hear the mainstream press howling all the way to the Arctic Circle.
One case in point is the F.I.C.A. tax. All workers pay this tax. It is designed to pay into the Social Security Trust Fund, and at some point in the future, workers are eligible to draw a monthly Social Security check and to qualify for Medicare, a program designed to insure that seniors get health care services.
For years and years, the Democrat Party has yelled at the top of their lungs that the Republicans want to do away with Social Security, let granny starve, and take grandpa’s medicine away from him. I can still hear Nancy Pelosi saying, “If George Bush gets his way, seniors will die. He wants to do away with Social Security and Medicare.”
Well, my dear friends, Obama is doing what George Bush was falsely accused of doing. He is raiding the Social Security Trust Fund by allowing a tax holiday on F.I.C.A. In other words, the only means of funding Social Security is being pushed to the curb so that Obama can ensure his re-election. Social Security, already broke because of liberal Democrats raiding the Trust Fund in order to buy votes, will go even further in debt. Some experts say that Obama’s tax holiday will cost the Trust Fund at least 200 billion dollars, and this number could go as high as 500 billion dollars.
With friends like the Democrats, senior citizens need no enemies. The Democrat Party is guaranteeing that the Social Security Trust Fund goes bankrupt long before the predicted date of 2017.
If you are a senior citizen dependent on Medicare and Social Security, you might want to think of alternate ways to survive. Your Congress, led by Harry Reid, and your president, in the person of Barack Obama, is making sure that all the money in the trust fund will be gone in short order. Soon, every senior citizen will be dependent on the good-will of the federal government.
Have you heard the mainstream press tell you what is happening to Social Security? Does NBC, CBS, ABC, or the cable networks do what a free press should do and tell the American people the truth about what is happening in Washington to our freedoms and to our bank accounts? You are expendable.
If you don’t believe me, read the bill that set up Obamacare. There are “death panels” in this nightmare of a bill. Oh, they don’t call them by that name, but if you are 73 years of age or older, you can forget treatment that might save your life, especially if it is expensive. It is much more “cost effective” to let you die. The Trust Fund pays out no additional money, and the money saved by not treating you can be diverted to “green energy” or some other liberal project that makes absolutely no sense.
So while Barack Obama defunds Social Security, what is the mainstream press doing? They are calling Obama the “tax cutting president” because he wants to extend F.I.C.A. cuts for two more months. Most of us who keep up with current events have long ago abandoned the mainstream press as a source of reliable news.
One other point. When Kim Jong Il, the North Korean president, died last week, the liberal media acted like a real statesman had died. They called this little psychotic thug “shrewd and calculating. He was tactically brilliant,” they fawned.
These are mainstream media types raving about a mass murderer, a man who cared nothing about his people who are starving by the thousands, and who led a rogue state into the nuclear era by letting his people literally exist on tree roots.
We have serious problems with the press in this country. First, it is corrupt. Then second, it reports news which it feels will fit its liberal agenda. Democrats and the other socialists can get away with raiding the Social Security Trust Fund, while Republicans “hate seniors, want to destroy Social Security, and want seniors to starve, eat dog food or go without medical treatment.”
The unfortunate truth is that this is exactly what the Democrat Party is doing, but the mainstream press is silent. If you believe anything that the mainstream press is telling you, I’ve got some bottom land down by the river that might interest you.
If you are a senior citizen, good luck. You will need it.
