Response to brewens (Reply #6)

7. Well, Brewens if the Repugs have their way, they will then have a clue.

It will take time because Republicans know they can't take too much too fast, or there would be mass rebellion. In time, though, their actions will sink in.

As I understand it, they want no pensions (all retirement funds invested in risky Wall Street stuff), no safety net, a free for all health care system, little or no home ownership (everything rented), no safety or environmental laws to protect workers, and the list goes on and on.

I'm afraid we won't see substantial change until enough of the public suffers enough to throw them out. Very sad times! I have friends in similar situations to the ones you described, with some dependent on VA pensions and healthcare, or Medicaid disability. My wife and I are dependent on SS and Medicare.

Where the hell do they think people will go without those programs? Maybe they don't care.
