    The 2018 Budget passed by the House of Representatives cuts $200 Billion from Medicare and Social Security.
    This will affect half the families in America. It's a Death Budget. And by the way: We the workers paid for Medicare and Social Security through our taxes. Now many seniors will be left to die.
    What do you think?

    The curators of our retirement accounts spent the money on pet projects to buy votes.  Nothing new, and now some of the most needy and deserving in the country will pay the price for those entitlements and pork spending we're all so fond of.

      Yes, one might say the majority of Americans will be paying twice--once for the pork barrel projects and once with their lives.
