Lost it all to Bankruptcy

I grew up in a proud military family, my grandfather, an Admiral in the Coast Guard, and superintent of the Coast Guard Academy was a veteran in WWI and WWII, and my father was a Coast Guard Captain and also a veteran of WWII. They both had spotless records, and never uttered a swear word!

My husband and I had a successful business and were blessed to provide the best for our children as the grew up.

But just as they were ready to go to college we had to file bankruptcy and have been struggling ever since.

I knew what it was like to be wealthy and now I also know what it is like to be poor.

My husband is dying of cancer.

We are both senior citizens and rely on a small S.S. check and Medicare! When my husband dies I will have to live on less than $800/month! I don't know how I will survive.

I doubt my grandfather and father would be proud of the country they fought for, doing this to the most vunerable in our country, while the wealthiest, usually only paying on capital gains @ 15%, are willing to put our country in a recession, and force others depending on S.S.to become homeless, over their greed!

Believe me I paid plenty in taxes as well as Social Security, and feel it should be there for me now.

And the Republicans call themselves the Religous Right! LOL They must read a different Bible than I do.
