POLITICIANS PAY ATTENTION!

POLITICIANS PAY ATTENTION!

The Harper government is saying that at this moment they cannot afford

to make changes to the CPP. They are also saying that seniors will have to

start paying for meds and health care after age 65 because of the strain

on the system. I think that it is time that we let him know what we think…..

CANADA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children

going to bed hungry, hospitals being closed, average income families who

can’t afford dental care, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds and having

to travel 100’s of miles for medical care with no reimbursement of cost,

vehicles we can’t afford gas for, lack of affordable housing, and mentally

ill without treatment, etc., etc.

YET….. They have a ‘Benefit’ for the people of Haiti, ships and planes

lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and

medical supplies.

What the HELL’s wrong with us???

WAKE UP CANADA !!!!

Someone please tell me what the is wrong with all the people that

run this country!  We’re “broke” & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans,

Orphans, Homeless, etc. But we spent 1.2 billions of dollars fo

r G-20 events!  In the  last few months we have provided aid to Haiti ,

Chile , and Turkey, as well as Khazakistan , Pakistan and all the other –

literally, BILLIONS of OUR dollars!!

Imagine if the GOVERNMENT gave ‘US’ the same support they

give to other countries.

Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do

they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations

pour hundreds of millions of dollars and tons of food into Foreign Countries!

They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement even thoug

h most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when

IT’S time for us to collect,

the government is running out of money. Why did the government

borrow from it in the first place?

Entitlement my ass, I paid cash for my Old Age Security and CPP!!!! 

Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t make my benefits

some kind of  charity or handout! What do MP’s get? Gold plated

MP pensions and Government benefits, a.k.a. free healthcare,

outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, 20 weeks paid

vacation, unlimited paid sick days — now that’s

welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a ‘greedy senior’ and my

retirement, an entitlement.

Sad isn’t it? Let’s hope it creates awareness! DO YOUR PART!

Things will only change when this kind of email translates int

o voting results at the polls. As of today, seniors out number

ANY OTHER type of voter even by race, religion, or age.

WHEN ARE SENIORS going wake up and understand!

WE have the POWER to shape legislation?

All WE need is the willpower to do so!

PLEASE SEND THIS BACK AROUND TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS

MAYBE THEN THE “GREY REVOLUTION” will begin.

FORWARDING THIS TO EVERYBODY !!!

9% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.

  I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did.
