So I will honor Momma by working on making this life better for her grandchildren and the generation to come. I have decided that I will not die working for a social security check and a retirement plan that will never manifest itself. No I will not believe in another 40 acres and a mule. Some how I know there is another plan for me.
Now I am preparing to call my Step Mom in the morning who also worked her entire life building up a social security system that has denied her benefits after 6 bouts with Cancer because she has had to work despite her illness. However, after her letter to the president, they have decided to approve but she was unaware of the unspoken rule that without an attorney you will be denied your back pay. So here she is being paid $1,000.00 by social security while cobra takes $800.00 each month since she is not eligible for Medicare. Imagine those seniors in this nation without family to try to bridge the gap. It breaks my heart to know I am not in a position to simply buy her a new car and pay off her mortgage and make life that much easier for her.
What really breaks my heart is we can send money to other nations, yet turn our backs on the sick and the elderly right here. The very people who have worked so hard and paid taxes their entire lives. There simply has to be a better way!
