We were convinced into mortgaging our homes so the top 1% could skim fees off the top claiming to be managing investments. Now that refinancing our homes has run its course to a ruin, the only way to keep making money is to find another target. This time it is not our homes to be invested to homelessness and foreclosure. This time it is our retirement is to be left to private investors to scavenge grandmother to an earlier grave. Rather than that, give me back all the money that me and my employers have paid into Social Security and Medicare with some interest, stop skimming it out of my pay (FICA) and let’s call it even.
Why should my hard earn money be mandated to another aspect of the private financial industry? They will use the argument behind the Constitutionality of mandating our health care payment to the insurance companies which are part of the private financial industry. That mandate was just the beginning, the wear of the Star. The death marches of the poor elderly that have no retirement funds or medical care due to another Wall Street crisis will be the death panels. With the blessing of the Supreme Court more and more of our hard earned money will be mandated to be given to private industry. That in itself is not capitalist. That is socialism for the financial industry. Under capitalism there is no government mandate of payment other than monies needed to run the country.
