I don't usually do two posts in a day but this is important!
Tomorrow, July 28th, is the 46th Birthday of Medicare. That's right! For 46 years Medicare has been helping elders meet their medical costs! As a stroke survivor, I don't know what I'd do without it -- especially with the cost of healthcare these days. Actually, I do know what it's like not to have health care and it ain't pretty -- at that, my friends, is is a gross understatement. I got a note from We are One, one of the many groups whose newsletter I read, asking me to join them for a rally at the East side of the Capitol for a rally tomorrow afternoon. I obviously can't make it so I'm passing it on to any of y'all who are interested, able, and live in the D.C. area. I wish I could be there -- the rebel in my soul would love to go but I'd prolly get busted and D.C. isn't famous for it's luxurious jail.
Please take look at the comments today's earlier post and see what and check out Cop Car's research/comment re: her investment in Social Security. It's also posted on her blog. It's an eye-opener!
Also, keep in mind that Social Security is NOT an entitlement -- we PAID into it every hour we worked or that our spouse worked.
