I don't know what happened to my previous blog post which related to no one addressing the fact that no one can purchase health insurance after 64.5 years of age. No one has ever confronted anyone on the Right as to whether they will use SS and/or Medicare when they become eligible. In other words will they use or refuse? I think we need to send a message to each Representative and Senator about that. They get the benefit, which we pay for of a federal health insurance/care program that does not kick them out at 64.5 years of age, as the rest of experience.

Also, I want to know if any of these Congressional multimillionaires are collecting their social security benefits. Just one email to all of them - have they ever used, are they currently using or will they use social security benefits or any federally funded/state funded (usually from federal funds)????

Say a lady has her purse ripped out of her hands by a thief as she walks down the sidewalk. Does anyone really begrudge the fact that she tries to hold on to it, chase the thief, and basically try to get her money back?

The Problem of the Establishment

One thing that both parties have in common in this primary season is the fact that there's a sharp divide between "We, the People" populism, and the rich and powerful Washington establishment.

On the Republican side, Donald Trump is leading the race by running on a populist platform based on the fact that he's not beholden to the billionaires or lobbyists, and that he's never been part of the political establishment.
