Problem with America is today no one wants to save and they want everything now and don't want to wait and save for it.
You want to see poverty? I can take you through parts of the western West Virginia and eastern Kentucky that will make your jaw drop open after you see what real poverty is. I've been through parts of the Georgia, Mississippi and Alabama where people are literally living in tar paper covered shacks.
People today are living way beyond their means just like our Government and complain they still don't have enough money to live on.
Yesterday it came out that in ten years in 2022 the U.S. governments budget will only have enough revenue for three items, Social Security, Medicare, and interest on the debt.
So quit whining about what other people are paying in taxes and worry how screwed we are as a country. Think about it, Zero money from the federal Government for highways, education, city and state funding, no low income housing assistance, no welfare, or public safety money. No money for defense or federal pensions, no money to bail out state or local let alone union pensions that are under funded.
You are living in a country that is the next Greece with in five years.
All because no one in elected office wants to say NO.
Our yearly deficit is now growing at $5,200 PER AMERICAN not family or wage earner but per person. The debt is now $53,225 per person and growing at $5,200 per year and if you think taxing the rich more will pay off your part of the national debt, you did far too many drugs in college. Ask California how taxing the shirt off the backs of the rich has worked out for them.
