Unfortunately it is common practice for them to use us the people to play their political games.....I agree with dman. It will get sorted out after all the posturing and game playing is done...jmo

Not to get political, but while there is an awful lot of posturing and grandstanding going on, these are indeed scary times.

There's a lot at stake here for the entire world.

Yeah, I agree kinda puts a person on edge.

This being the year my Mr.TC was planning on retiring. It took three years for one of his retirement funds to come back to where it was due to stock market crash, now this and I feel lucky to have that. I agree the cable/dish bill will be down graded to the lowest allowable package as a first defense. We could always go on a diet, I guess.

I agree BB, there is a world wide interest in what is going on in our supposed "hallowed halls" of government. And I dont doubt that it will not be good for the "ordinary man" what ever happens. I balance my budget every month, why should the government not get that?

How this isn't a political thread is beyond me.
The Govt. will not not pay out SS VA SSI and entitlement programs. They ALWAYS use that as a scare tactic to raise the debt ceiling. The fix is obvious, but it means smaller govt. One thing they DON'T want.
So tell her not to stress it. All they will do is print more money.

Cut foreign Aid, withdrawl from the middle east and africa. and cancel a bunch of govt. contracts. They can find the money. Don't let them fool ya'll.

The cost of NOT sending out those checks is way to great. It would destroy the current administration. (Which I wouldn't shed a tear)

Since this isn't political, I will just say that I hear all ya'll, Mr rb is set to retire next year. Yikes! But, as a very political person, that is sick to death of politics, I think we are too smart to let this country go into default. I predict it will not happen.

Check this out in the good ole U.K. then folks

The British Government provides the following financial assistance: -

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER (bearing in mind they worked hard and paid their Income Tax and National Insurance contributions to the British government all their working life) Weekly allowance: £106.00
IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN (No Income Tax and National Insurance contribution whatsoever) Weekly allowance: £250.00

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Weekly Spouse allowance: £25.00
ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Weekly Spouse allowance: £225.00

BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER Additional weekly hardship allowance £0.00

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN Additional weekly hardship allowance £100.00

A British old age pensioner is no less hard up than an illegal immigrant/refugee yet receives nothing
BRITISH OLD AGED PENSIONER TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT £6,000

ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS/REFUGEES LIVING IN BRITAIN TOTAL YEARLY BENEFIT: £29,900


Please read all and then forward to all your contacts so that we can lobby for a decent state pension.

After all, the average pensioner has paid taxes and contributed to the growth of this country for the last 40 to 60 years.

Sad isn't it? Its about time we put our own people first.

Most people won't have the guts to forward this.

I Just did!

AND SO DID I

See user name:hubba: As someone who was born in D.C., and lived most of my life within 100 miles of there, I'm pretty political. But do try not to express such opinions here. However, we need to cut spending now. From what I read, we have accumulated more debt since 01/20/09 than in the 200 years preceding that.
I'm more of a Libertarian, but my username fits Hammies suggestion.

Hahaha, this thread is too funny. I love a "mexican standoff" of douchebags deciding our (middle and lower classes) fates, all for not wanting to cave. IE, elections are coming, and no one wants to cave and lose votes. It's all bunk. We are the ones getting screwed. Aside from that, I got a post in before it got locked, hahaha :)
