About Corruption

What do we know about corruption? I would say: a lot and sometimes not enough. There nis corruption of children,prostitution and a lot of other things, but there is also corruption in the Goverment. It has been said that a new bill should get started for the coming elections. All Goverment people should be put on Social Security. Do you think there is corruption in Social Security? Our Senators and Congresswomen do not pay into into Social Security and do not collect from it. They said that Social Security benefits were not suitable for people of their rare elevation. They came up with a special plan for themselves. many years ago they voted in their own Benefit Plan. Now in more recent years no Congress person has seen a reason to change that plan. When they retire - they continue to recieve the same pay until they die. The only change is that it may increse now and than for cost of living. Senators and Congressmen will draw about $7.800,000,00 With their wives drawing $275,000.00 during the last years of their lives. Younger Dignitaires that retire at an earlier age will recieve a lot more. Their cost for this excellent plan is nothing. You and I pay for them, out of our own Social Security Plan, which which we paid or will pay until we retire. We will get an average of $1000.00 a month and maybe less. Is there Corruption in Social Security or what? It would be good if their Golden Fleece Retirement Plan was taken away and put them in our own Social Security Plan, like the rest of us. Maybe than the plan would be fixed...

    Oh boy! this is good, keep on writing Lucilla, we'll wear them down one day. Here in the UK Barclay's Bank are under investigation for fraud, but we all know that's just a ploy, to make us think the authorities are squeaky-clean. again a brilliant poem, told as it is!

    That would fix a lot of the problem to cut out the big expenses at the top..They should also have to have the same kind of medical care that we the average citizen gets..Doctors now go at your age you don't need to be fixed..You can just suffer until you die..Sara

    Laws are broken by those who make them. New Jersey's own governor was traveling north on the Garden State Parkway at 91 mph in a 65 mph zone. He also was not wearing a seat belt. He and the state trooper driving the vehicle got into an accident and sustained injuries. No further comment.

    THey suck big time. And it's not just social security. they are up to a lot of little weasel tricks, getting paid under the table by big oil, insurance companies, bankers, everything that is bringing our country down. Don't even get me started!!!! Good one for starting a debate.
