My wife works for the Department of defense. She is a nurse and is currently working for free.I do not work for the government so we do have 1 check still coming in. I keep reassuring her that things will be worked out just as soon as they accomplish their task at hand! I just dont know why our government, our leaders, the ones who swore to protect us and stand up for us will take paychecks from the working men and women? It blows my mind? We can let in illegals and pay for their college? We can let millions of people live off welfare? We can give free health care? Its starting to look like they want everyone to live off the government and be free loaders? Or maybe its more just count on the government for everything , we can all drive VW bugs, all have the same health coverage, they can tell us what to wear, how many guns to have. We need to look at the whole picture on whats going on!! I know a guy who was in the army for 4 years and has nothing wrong with him but he tells a lil white lie and the government pays him $3,000 after taxes a month for fake back injuries and aying he has PTSD! They didnt second guess a thing ands he brags about it! The government system is broken and needs fixed to stop the free loaders! But wait this will not happen anytime soon, cause they want us to depend on them! I know several puerto ricans who came to the USA and now live off the government, all they do is say they are to crazy to work, pop out a few kids and boom. The good old USA pays their way!!!! Please revamp the welfare, unemployment, disiblity systems and leave the working people alone!
