69.8 million families, in this United States, live on Social Security and/or Federal Pension. Those checks cover anywhere from one to —— people/adults and children in a family.
IF OUR government cannot get its act together, 69.8 million families will not get a check (and that includes the military) on the Third of August. What will happen????
1. First, no direct deposit or card to pay that money.
2. No deposit, EQUALS, no money to pay the mortgage, utilities, doctors, gasoline, car repairs, house repairs, food, school clothing, book rental. For one month, we will sit in our HOT homes (my husband has COPD and by the end of the month will most likely be in the hospital.) opening bank statement overdraft fees, and mortgage late payments, and, after the freezer is all melted, canned goods. Not to speak of the student loan that I could not cancel the automatic withdrawal on in time. That would certainly rank under the mortgage, if I could have.
3. The end of the month will see us walking three miles away to have a free dinner at Mother’s Cupboard, well some of us. My husband could not walk that length even in 70 degree weather.
4. I will cancel the MRI for my possible crushed disc, in my back that is causing intense cyatic pain.
5. We will not order medicine that we run out of.
6. We already cancelled our land line but have a contract on the cell, so I guess they just turn it off without payment, but you still owe it.
7. What happens to your health and life insurance premiums? I think I have two months before I am in default and lose my health insurance.
8. Our income is already under $20,000 a year. We have a nineteen year old with one more semester of high school, long story, he wasn’t being homeschooled when we took him, so he had problems. One boy was just deployed to Afghanistan and one boy is working in food service and paying his own student loans and gas and food bills.
9. Just wanted to give you a taste of our world.
Every single one of those families need to write to every Congressman, senator, tea party, republican and democrat and send them a bill for the actual and mental damages when this happens. Maybe that will wake them up. Do you know a good Class Action lawyer?
