    I don't care. We did not elect him to end food stamps, cut Medicare and SS.

    If they must do something with Medicare, it can't be on the back of seniors, like me, who are barely making ends meet as it is.

    Some of us are not in the best of health and we simply have no way to make up the money. Or do they wish to scoop us up and put us in group homes?

      I'm worried they will cut off Social Security for those below 55.  That would affect my husband, which would be disasterous for him.  Although we have my retirement and, when I'm eligible, my SS, what if I die?  What happens to him?  

      We have to urge Obama to remember why he was reelected.  He has to protect our benefits!

        I so agree. I know first hand what could and would happen. My question to all who are for these extreme measures is what do you plan to do with the millions of Americans who
        won't have the money to live, let alone prosper?

        My wife and I worked all our lives. Never drew unemployment or got one cent of help from anyone and never begrudged those who needed a helping hand.  

        There is this new evil that has taken over a part of this country and that is the vilification of the poor and struggling. Hitler used the natural hatred of the Jews and poor in Nazi Germany to do unspeakable horrors.

        I am not saying that is coming to this country but if some of these draconian measures are enacted, this country will be on the road to a true depression, complete with soup kitchens and group homes.
