    I also agree … they need to pay SS and not get everything free for life …

    • Veronica R.

      The judge awarded me SSDI in 2020 I spoke to a person who worked for SS for 35 years, she said they cannot over rule a judge! The ones who were only working there for 10 years were like oh yes we can! I need to help to get my paper folder from the date he awarded me SSDI . I went and I never received it? Does anyone know how to get the help I need? Would be very much appreciated.

      • Ann C.

    Medicare said that one of the benefits is Dental services . But we have a bad experience almost nothing is covering only extracción and the entire denture.
    No partial and no deep cleaning , are covering and any crown either .very frustrated.

    We The People are now and had been systematically lied to be our gov’t of the funds of the SSA. It is about time thing were straightened out in the favor of We The People and not the liars of the gov’t.

    Our government needs to immediately STOP all of the inflated wages for the Senate and House. When they retire, they should live on SSI, (and the bazillion they have in savings). NO MORE. They need to have to pay over and above whatever Medicare pays for their medical bills, and whatever it covers for prescriptions. Oh wait. It doesn’t cover prescriptions, or dental, or eyecare. I guess they figure if we have no teeth, we can gum our food , or drink it, and if we go blind, we can just stay in the house and bump into stuff all the time, and maybe find a kind soul or friend that can bring us groceries. No government employee that serves in the House or Senate should be able to serve more than 8 years. PERIOD. If our Presidents can only serve 8 years, why in the name of all that’s holy would we allow the others to serve a lifetime? If they still, after 8 years, want to be in public service, fine. They can Go back to their home states and try to get a position. The Good Lord knows our poor states can use all the help they can get. I don’t understand how, they can even have the gall, to express sympathy to our Veterans families that our Soldier gave his all for our Great country, or those who have served and been wounded in combat. If our Veterans were treated with the honor and respect they deserve, we would have NO homeless Veterans and “Hanoi Jane” would have been banned from our Great Country, and NEVER for any reason be allowed to come back. But I digress. In short, the government that is supposed to be working FOR: WE, THE PEOPLE, is working for themselves, the greedy. This is not what our forefathers had in mind when they wrote the constitution of our great land. Things have been allowed to get totally out of control, and people all over our country are suffering because of it. GET OUT AND VOTE. WE VOTE THESE PEOPLE INTO OFFICE TO WORK FOR US! IF THEY TURN OUT TO BE BAD ONES, VOTE ANOTHER ONE IN! Seniors, Veterans, children, and all the ones who go out and work hard every single day, many, more than one job to pay in all of those taxes and Medicare, only to suffer when they retire. AND not only that, but be penalized for taking what’s rightfully yours “to early”. Something has to happen. I could go on and on very easily, but I will put one more thing in before I go. Burial expenses for Seniors on SSI paid out to the families for burial…can you please tell me in this day and time, what $255. is going to pay for? I don’t think we could be thrown in a Pine box and a hole dug for us for that. I KNOW we couldn’t. Do you think the ones I have previously mentioned in the House and Senate, could have their families buried, or be buried themselves with $255? Doubtful. God Bless America and its citizens.

    • Lynn P.

      I agree wholeheartedly

      • Andrea A.

        They are trying to do better. Better late than never. Hopefully they figure it out soon. It take time and mistakes to get it right. Just like everything else.. I’m thankful for what I get. It could be worse..

    • Otto B.

      That’s right and term limits they are all really just living off the tax payers some never worked a honest job in their life

    • Rhonda

      Sherry I totally understand & agree with every statement you made. This country is going to hell. God bless our future children grandchildren, for they will have to live with this mess!
