True, we are finding out (not for me) that if you have not been eligible for help all your life and paid taxes you're not eligible when you need help in your elderly years. It's only people on assistance who can continue to get help.

The only way conceivably that would work for any program(s) like being discussed is for the USA to call in all of it's loans to foreign countries, stop all foreign aid, turn all those funds into assistance for all the US citizens and take care of our own period. Tell the rest of the world to work out their own problems. LOL.
