I’m so frustrated with today’s world it’s not even funny. You can’t do anything without spending money but yet you can’t get a job. When you are on government assistance, it just makes it worse. Because when you do have a job, you can only make so much money before they start taking your government assistance away. So it’s like what do we do? We can’t go out and got a job because we want to. We have to worry about how much we make and how much we work. If we work one hour too long, the government threatens to take away our assistance. Yet we have a government that basically pays people more than minimum wage just to sit around and watch tv. They are not even trying to get a job. We have people that want to work and can’t find employment to accommodate their disability. If employed these individuals would be a good asset to society. But yet they can’t work because they are on disability or they have a disability and they are on government assistance. I have a degree but I can’t use it. Because if I work over a specified amount of time or my wages exceed a specified amount they take my government assistance away. But yet nobody will hire me because they want someone that can work full time. An employer doesn’t want to watch my hrs and how much I work or how much I make. They don’t want to worry about the government. The government doesn’t understand that employers do not want to monitor hours worked. The employer wants somebody that can do their job and do it well. They don’t want to worry about total wages per week for a disabled worker. And that is wrong. When we have people who want to work and can’t. So what’s wrong with today’s society.
Because of this scenario people can’t afford to live on their own. They have to live with their family or in an institution. Which costs “X” amount of dollars more than employed individuals. With the economy the way it is and with Obamacare that the government thinks will make this situation better. It will actually , in my opinion, make it worse.
The general population may have trouble independently making ends meet. As result, they may not be able to get help that they will really need. They may go without necessary medications or may not take any treatments. Which in turn, this will come back on our country. Eventually, it will effect the whole world.
Then we have people like Congress that want to improve stuff like amnesty. Where is that going to lead us. Are those people going to end up on welfare? When Social Security is going to go bankrupt, is it right to punish people on Social Security when they worked all of their lives. When we have people on the other side, who are not working possibly doing drugs. Probably making over minimum wage, using food stamps and exploiting the system. I think something needs to change. I think it needs to start with cutting out all Medicaid loopholes. Put some of that money in to trying to repair the Social Security system. I know these are two different institutions but we need to start somewhere. We all need to think about everything in my post because it is very important and will eventually effect the whole world.
