bad things happen to good people all the time. Its called the way life is.

I very awful for htis, person. There is help out there for her. Maybe the redcross can help her.


She would still be screwed if we had national healthcare.

Again taxing the rich people more would not do anything to help her.

I like this, too. My husband and I pay pretty high taxes for a single-income family of four. Last year we paid $7,785.10 in federal taxes and $6,246.00 in state taxes. We also paid $5,671.55 into social security and $1,326.41 into medicare.

Neither of us even have a college degree yet we have made smart decisions and worked hard to live a good life. We're putting money in the pockets of the 1%'ers while at the same time putting food into the mouths of 99%'ers. We work more reasonable hours with much higher pay and better benefits but foot bigger bills, to boot.

Truth hurts. Democrats have been trying to get national healthcare for a long time. The right keeps blocking it. At the end of the day, we are all going to get sick and we are all going to need healthcare.

The classless act is not helping out other Americans in need.

She would still be screwed either way. I am all for helping people in a time of need.

I would be more than willing top ay more in taxes if the Gov did what its supposed to do.

Like we could have a fund that could be set up and everyone could donate right from thier check before taxes. But you know the Gov (Dems and Repubs) would just steal it and use it for an airport for PA or a politicaly connected solar company. How much would 500,000 million help this person. Yet I never see a post from you against wasteful spending from the libs.

I am all about cutting wasteful spending. Lets start with the military and unnecessary foreign wars and then maybe we could afford national healthcare.

I have so many signs, where do I start?

Heres one:

I joined the Army in 2000. I have deployed to the Middle East multiple times to fight wars I don't necessarily agree with. I believe my country right or wrong. Now, the leaders of my country are threatening to take away the retirement benefits I was promised. Trillion dollar bailouts for banks are doable, but promised benefits to a generation of veterans of who have seen more combat than World War II vets is not? I am part of the 99 percent.

Or how about this one:

My dad worked hard every day of his life since he was 16. He never could afford health care. He died of cancer when he was 52. Early detection probably could have saved his life, but he didn't want to "waste" $100 on a doctor's visit, so he didn't go see one until he s*** blood. He was part of the 99 percent.

My sign directed at the 1%ers:

Your lucky way of life is almost over, economic growth is over.

Thanks for polluting our land, and making most of our country a dying chain-filled eyesore.

Thanks for leaving us 99%ers with your scraps and McJobs.

Thanks for doing more for China, Saudi Arabia and India then for America.

And enjoy your forced retirement, you'll eventually be humiliated and bored, but you'll still be obscenly rich.

In what way? If she lived here all of her treatments would be 100% paid for, and guess what, taxes here are now less than there.

My sign would say:

"Obama is a 1%er."

Because it's true and because I love irony.
