The lady above is Marita Nelson. she's an illegal immigrant living here in the US and living on welfare for 20 years! she receives Social Security, Medicaid, Section 8, and food stamps/EBT. Read that again; an illegal immigrant living in America receiving welfare benefits for twenty years!!!!!!!! Obama and Congress want 11,000,000 plus of these people a "pathway to citizenship." These people could vote, and receive more welfare benefits as well as be able to work in civil service jobs and receive more welfare benefits. I wish the "gang of 8" would go into Washington Heights, South Central or the US/Mexico border.
Let's take a look at our situation; America is in $17 trillion dollars in debt, there is no budget, cities and states are going broke, the economy is still in the toilet, our factories moved to China, our Department of defense is being gutted, NASA doesn't go into space anymore, and we have more people on food stamps that at any time in history. Medicaid and Social Security is going broke. The government has turned their guns on the taxpaying middle class with the TSA, IRS, and NSA. The government bought millions of rounds of ammunition yet leave the southern border open.
Now here's my situation. My wife and I live in the Washington, DC area. We both make a decent living. We bought a house below market value in a county with decent schools and safe neighborhoods. We had to decide between expensive house closer to work or more house for less money but more money for gas, repair and more car purchases. We seen our food bill skyrocket. Besides food we have to pay for cable, phone, internet (basic bundle package), cell phone (basic package with a discount), electricity, gas, credit cards (mostly baby stuff), student loan, and day care ($1,000 per month). My daycare provider is one of the cheapest provider around. My wife drives a 2010 car that we bought in 2013, and with a huge trade in. My car is 10 years old. We do not eat out in fancy restaurants, buy flashy clothes or electronics, or take vacations. We don't smoke and I occasionally drink. I clip coupons and spend lots of time at Costco for detergents, paper products, and dry goods. We spent our tax refunds on tires for my car and home improvements. We have no savings, no college fund for our daughter, only one child. We live from paycheck to paycheck and over 75% of my paycheck go to the mortgage........And I consider myself one of the lucky ones!
