A CONSERVATIVE OUTRAGE!
Now before you go dismissing the below article consider this. A recent report found that for the first time EVER, Congress is run by millionaires. Everyone in Congress reportedly has a net worth of over $1,000,000 plus a beginning salary of approximately $175,000, plus expenses for their offices, plural, one in Washington DC and at least one in their district or state as it may be.
This past Friday I received a phone call from one of my buds who quickly told me the gas price just went up 30 cents at the gas station across the street from where he worked. He wanted to make sure I gassed up before the price went up. Of course I pulled into the next available Speedway and filled it to the brim. So, what's my point? Well, do you think any one of the people in Congress called their buds and said the gas is going up 30 cents, you better stop and gas up? In a word He*L NO!
So what's my point? "Out of touch", these guys and gals are "out of touch" with the people who they no longer govern, but, who they NOW dictate to. When you have a kid in school and one in college, a reasonable mortgage payment, some doctor bills and you want to eat, you watch gas prices and everything else. Congress is "OUT OF TOUCH'.
If you are "OUT OF TOUCH", you don't realize one or two tiny little things that most parents know about their kids. They like to have fun and SPEND MONEY. Fun and spending money go together when you are young and living large! You want gas in your car, food in your belly and enough jingle in your pocket to take Suzy out for the night. The last thing you think about is: HEALTH COVERAGE/HEALTH CARE!! You, in a word are INVINCIBLE!
As Cheech Marin might say, We don't need no stinkin' health care, man.
Bottom line, young people aren't NOT going to buy coverage. They feel they don't need it, don't have the money for it, and have more important issues in their life than to worry about what "may" happen. Anybody "in touch" with the majority of Americans young and old are going to know and understand this phenomenon. They are not going to attempt to fund a billion/trillion dollar overhaul of the health care system betting on our youth.
Second bottom line: Washington DC can no longer relate to the people they are suppose to be working for! They all need replaced, they all need to have salaries reduced, and most important they need to be governed by the same laws they pass for each and every Red, White and Blue American!
So now you can read this article.
