50,000,000 City, County, State, Federel, Education, and Health Care Workers generally making above average incomes and benefits packages.

Most of health care spend comes from government through medicare, medicaid, insurance for goverment workers, and welfare....not to mention the tens of millions of health care workers that have insurance as a benefit of receiving payments from government.

A full one third of the higher paid workers in workforce work for government or heatlh care....not to mention that a significant part of government tax receipts is paid by those same workers who are paid by government who in turn pays them again while they pay even more taxes......even Alstry is confused on this one.

THE PROBLEM IS GOVERNMENT DOES NOT HAVE THE MONEY TO PAY THESE WORKERS NOW THAT GOVERNMENT IS RUNNING A $2 TRILLION DOLLAR DEFICIT....AND GROWING AS TAX RECEIPTS EVAPORATE.

Why should a private sector employee get fired, or suffer a dramatic pay cut, when his or her employer can't afford to pay them yet government and health care workers get such generous pay packages simply because government can borrow from pension plans to fund salaries when the money doesn't exist?

Shouldn't everyone be able to borrow from pension funds to get paid so they can consume....isn't that the American way????

 

Let's not forget Wall Street.....how much do you think Wall Street makes selling financial products to the above 50,000,000 workers and their pension plans.............................................................???????

When you start to think in life....life looks more and more like a Ponzi Scheme.
