A new 2024 budget proposal may mean many government social programs possibly being cut, or down the road, taken away! They put these programs into place to protect the livelihood of our citizens during retirement & times of need. Also, big bucks come out of our paychecks each pay period to cover these programs. They are not government funded, are wonderful politicians in Washington DC, and throughout the country are trying to take this away. They are trying to steal money from all working Americans who have been paying into the system for years.

The Republican Party has claimed again and again that no cuts to Social Security and Medicare shall take place.



Guess what? The Republican Committee, in which ¾ of House Republicans are members. So, the 2024 proposed budget does call for cuts to Social Security & Medicare. It would accomplish this by raising the full retirement age for future retirees. They want to ensure Americans a modest adjustment but did not elaborate on what that new age for a new full retirement age would be.

On Medicare, the Republicans are requiring disabled Americans to wait longer. This could eventually turn Medicare into a Voucher Scheme! Making Medicare less affordable for many seniors across the country.

It seems fair to ask how much our government officials pay for health insurance.

They do such an honorable job for us, and have such great leadership, UGHHH!!

The answer is they apparently pay something, but not very much! Contrary to popular belief, Congressional Members do not get free healthcare! They enroll in an Obamacare Gold-Level Package, and they also receive a 72% government subsidy to lower their out-of-pocket cost.


So, I guess it works out for Congress and its staff paying about 28% out of pocket to cover their insurance premiums. Including free or low-cost care through “the office of the attending physician” as well as free medical outpatient care at “military facilities” in the D.C. area. Not a bad deal. As Americans, we should be entitled to the same healthcare as all politicians & congress, etc., Why not, as taxpayers we are footing the bill for it all?

So as American Citizens, we need to do whatever it takes legally to be heard! Write to our leaders, protest, and march in front of the state and government buildings, and on its sidewalks without obstructing others in their everyday life. Distribute flyers, and literature to others on your own property, and public sidewalks, and parks & plazas included. Chant or sing in protest to be heard. But under no circumstances can we cause a repeat of January 6th, when our former president sat by and watched it on television. Somehow, he caused a meltdown that day and is still waiting to be punished for his actions. People were injured and five deaths also occurred that day. Those individuals will never go home and see their loved ones again.

So, remember we have the absolute and given right to protest and have our voices heard in a peaceful and orderly fashion.

This act to cut Social Security Benefits and Medicare will affect our future lives. Also affects the lives of our parents, family members, friends, and neighbors. This is one step away from trying to strip us of the benefits that we all paid into for so long, and will continue to do so! I don’t know about everyone else, but I will fight and protest to get all the money back that I paid over the years while employed.

It's not our fault our government ran out of money to pay its bills, borrowed, and took money from Social Security with no intention of paying it back. During Covid, lots of individuals who were collecting benefits lost their life to this dreaded virus that was brought to us from another country being “China” which now destroyed our economy. Our great president during the pandemic did not control it or stop it. So, unfortunately, there should be less money being paid out, whose back pocket has that gone into funding some scheme?

So, we may know and be heard! This is something that needs to be investigated and stopped. It is our money and not the government’s to use for their personal projects.

Yes, the US Congress has stolen money from the Social Security Administration!



America’s top and most important social program is not in the best of shape. Social Security will experience a $13.9 trillion cash shortfall between 2035 and 2093. It’s also expected that $2.9 trillion in asset reserves will be totally exhausted. Will Social Security go bankrupt, how did we get into this mess? There is lots of misinformation about how this really happened. Go here to find out more: 


First, there was talk that Congress from 1968 to 1990 that money was pilfered from America’s top social program.  Also, did you know that Social Security asset reserves are required by law to be invested in special-issue bonds?

But if you read further, by clicking on some links above, Congress may not be totally to blame. Lawmakers share their part in the responsibility also, they knew about the program’s shortcomings since 1985. Democrats and Republicans both have an answer for this debacle. One wants to raise the retirement age, and the other wants to raise taxes on the wealthy. I personally don’t care, but when it comes time for us to collect, the full amount of money we are entitled to collect better be there. Or my second choice, be prepared to pay back all the money we paid in, in full. There are many solutions on the table to fix this mess. Our leaders need to get their heads out of their asses and fix the mess that all our government officials who represent us in Washington created!!!
