Amazing, isn’t it, that the 80-plus millionaires in Washington, D.C., have no interest in bailing out Social Security, Medicare or the postal service?

Could it be that none of these millionaires has any stocks and revenues from these programs like they have in oil, banks, auto and all the other companies that they bailed out?

Oh, I almost forgot that they also have their own retirement and health care plans, and so they don’t need Social Security or Medicare.

One more item: I haven’t read anywhere that our country, which is bankrupt, will cut out any or all the billions of dollars worth of foreign aid that we spend every year to rebuild these countries while we go down the tubes.
