Attention: American Citizens!
I received an email that is being passed around on the Internet. It contains information that affects all of us. Frankly, I am not surprised. I only have to refer back to the elections of 2008. Being directly involved in working in the Primaries, none of this, and none of what is coming out of D.C. surprises me. Do I like it? I didn't then, and I don't now. I still become angry, disgusted, and appalled at what I witnessed "up close and personal". The email that follows is just more of what I saw as "things to come" from this administration and the very people who are suppose to be representing us, while selling us down the river.
Now I consider myself as empathetic to others in need as the next. However, I also believe in the age old motto that "Charity starts at Home". Where is the help for our own citizens who are in dire straits? And while Congress dishes out our tax dollars by the billions, they seemingly have no conscious or compassion for those they are hurting in the process. While claiming to be fixing our health care, they are taking benefits away from senior citizens. Benefits that we seniors have been paying for. They plan to go up on our premiums and cut our benefits, which will increase our supplement insurance premiums, as well as affect our care. Along with that, they have also decided that social security recipients should not, and will not receive the little meager raise that they have been not so generous with in the past.
For those of you who have not reached "retirement", you may not realize what you're in for. Oh... boy... that is a whole nuther subject which I covered in my book "Retirement: Twice the Husband. Half the Pay." And basically boils down to the very real fact that traditional retirement pensions DO NOT give raises. The pension income you start with never goes up, but the cost of living does! And the longer you live, the bigger the gap between your income and the cost of living. Yet Congress with their "Golden Benefits" act like all Seniors are as well off as they are. They don't seem to care that current ecomonic situations are sending the majority of Seniors on a Fast Tract to BROKE. But of course, if they cut our health benefits, then perhaps we'll all just die off and get out of their way.
NEWS FLASH, Folks! IF YOU ARE LUCKY ENOUGH TO LIVE INTO YOUR SENIOR YEARS, do you really want those "Jugheads" deciding your life for you? Your lifestyle?
I recently had to call 911 at 2:30 in the morning to come take my very ill husband to the ER where he spent the next 6 or more hours before being admitted to the hospital. I praised the Staff for the aggressive treatments they began immediately. Without the care they gave, I would likely be a widow. Because of his age - 90 on October 27th - would the "death squad" have withheld the needed treatments for his acute pneumonia? Or would they just have ruled to let him die? I have a very long list covering over the passed 21 years of how his life has been made better because we had choices. Of course, we have also made sure to pay for the very expensive health insurance that is over and above the Medicare, because Medicare doesn't even come close to paying for the total care. And I know for a fact that without our Insurance, he would not have gotten the care he needed in the various episodes. He likely would not have walked out of the hospital recently on his own two feet.Yet, as I spout the praises for the life-saving treatments and technology, I am also very aware of the areas of abuse and unnecessary procedures, tests, and waste of supplies, and more, that travels along bag and baggage in the pretense of "quality care". And I still believe that a Free Market is the best way to control costs, as the Market will dictate what it will stand. Consumers, not Congress, can and should control their own destiny. Well... that's another subject, too. And while I seemingly have ventured off of the original subject of the email, my point is to point out where our priorities should be -- to our own Citizens.
Now I have to wondered just how many of the "Refugees" are going to be migrated into our midst that it takes over 20 million dollars to move them here? I also wondered why there is no mention of these Refugees finding a job? And the next question that comes to mind is just what sort of people are these Refugees? Are they abused victims of terrorists and or war? Or... are they in fact supporters of terrorists, or even terrorist themselves? Don't we have a right to know? It's our money.
Well, enough from me. Just read the email and draw your own conclusions. And remember at voting time who is spending your money without your permission!
Thank you. God Bless You. And God Help Us All!
HB 1388 PASSED !!
You just spent $20,000,000 to move members/supporters of Hamas, a terrorist organization, to the United States ; They get housing, food, the whole enchilada.
HB 1388 PASSED
Whether you are an Obama fan, or not, EVERYONE IN THE U. S. needs to know.....
Something happened.... H.R. 1388 was passed, behind our backs. You may want to read about it.. It wasn ' t mentioned on the news... just went by on the ticker tape at the bottom of the CNN
Obama funds $20M in tax payer dollars to immigrate Hamas Refugees to the USA . This is the news that didn ' t make the headlines...
By executive order, President Barack Obama has ordered the expenditure of $20.3 million in "migration assistance" to the Palestinian refugees and "conflict victims" in Gaza .
The "presidential determination", which allows hundreds of thousands of Palestinians with ties to Hamas to resettle in the United States , was signed and appears in the Federal Register.
Few on Capitol Hill, or in the media, took note that the order provides a free ticket replete with housing and food allowances to individuals who have displayed their overwhelming support to the Islamic Resistance Movement (Hamas) in the parliamentary election of January 2006.
Let's review....itemized list of some of Barack Obama ' s most recent actions since his inauguration:
His first call to any head of state, as president, was to Mahmoud Abbas, leader of Fatah party in the Palestinian territory.
His first one-on-one television interview with any news organization was with Al Arabia television.
His first executive order was to fund/facilitate abortion(s) not j ust here within the U. S. , but within the world, using U. S. tax payer funds.
He ordered Guantanamo Bay closed and all military trials of detainees halted.
He ordered overseas CIA interrogation centers closed.
He withdrew all charges against the masterminds behind the USS Cole and the "terror attack" on 9/11.
Now we learn that he is allowing hundreds of thousands of Palestinian refuges to move to, and live in, the US at American taxpayer expense.
These important, and insightful, issues are being "lost" in the blinding bail-outs and "stimulation" packages.
Doubtful? To verify this for yourself:
PLEASE PASS THIS ON... AMERICA NEEDS TO KNOW
WE are losing this country at a rapid pace.
