The low-man on the totum pole is NOT the problem
I'm hearing about all this budget crap from the government. How they plan to implement furlough days, once a week to save $$. Many believe government workers get high pay etc. Most do not. I'm not talking about the top dogs - but the little guys. The clerks, the security guards, the janitors etc. Yeah we're all in this together, but it's a bit lopsided. These cuts and furlough days only hurt the little guy and lets get real here - the little guy is NOT the problem.
So Little Guy (or low-man) gets 3 more furlough days a month along with the 1 he already has been taking - that now amounts to about $550 or more cut in their take home pay. Little Guy has no choice but to check out Government assistance since he is unable to roll with this major cut to his budget. That is why food stamps and other programs are becoming easier to obtain - they have broadened their qualifications. But how long will that last before they raise the bar?
Little Guy could go out on those furlough days and try and get a 2nd job. He is out there with all the other low-men or little guys, who are trying desperately to do the same thing. No jobs are available to them.
I watch, listen and read the news. Everything reported tends to say we are on a up-swing - the economy is improving. I am a very congenial person and always willing to give a new President a chance - but this is crazy. I honestly do not think this President knows what the heck he is doing. THERE, I've said it!
I've been trying not to notice many things regarding this administration. I can't help it anymore. It's blaring out at me. So many inconsistencies - and as far as I am concerned, we are totally off track. It's like they keep getting off the real issues and on to these rabbit trails - to keep the masses thinking, all is well.
I really shudder to think of what this nation is going to look like, 4 years from now. Heck for that matter, I shudder to think what the Little Guy will look like, 4 years from now. Will he still have a home? Will he lose everything he has worked hard to get?
We are so screwed.
