I’m ‘sick and tired’ ….
Folks who are active — in sports, outdoor activities, whatever — are healthier and less likely to be worried about the issue of health.
However, those of us fortunate enough to spend more time on earth, are aging. And with age comes more health concerns.
Now that MDH * and I are moving closer to the shadow of Medicare (because of our ages), we are paying attention to the health care debate.
We are very concerned, but can’t think of any snappy way to respond to the politicians who have decided that anyone over 59 is well, just too damn old….
A Message from Maxine
Sarcastic, sassy Maxine has a message! I wish I could have said it as well!
Senior Health Care Solution According to Maxine…….**
Senior Health Care Solution
So you’re a senior citizen and the government says “no” health care for you, what do you do?
Our plan gives anyone 65 years or older a gun and 4 bullets.
Your are allowed to shoot 2 senators and 2 representatives.
Of course, this means you will be sent to prison where you will get
- 3 meals a day,
- a roof over your head, and
- all the health care you need!
- New teeth … no problem.
- Need glasses … great.
- New hip, knees, kidney, lungs, heart? All covered.
And who will be paying for all of this?
The same government that just told you that you are too old for health care.
Oh yes, an added bonus: Because you are now a prisoner, you don’t have to pay income taxes anymore.
IS THIS A GREAT COUNTRY OR WHAT?!
The reason anyone over the age of 59 is expendable is that our senators, representatives and loser-in-chief (most of whom are well over 59 years of age) have already created a WONDERFUL health plan for themselves!
Take a look at the provisions for THEM … it will make you sick!
Your grandparents and my mother aren’t worth keeping alive, but you and I are paying plenty to keep the fat cats (and all their dependents) healthy! ***

** Of course this isn’t Maxine; she’s a copyrighted figure. Just imagine this woman with … some sassy, round sunglasses, an attitude and a snarly smile ….
*** Guess when their benefits start? As soon as they are elected!
Guess how long their benefits last? As long as they live! (They don’t have to remain in Congress to keep their benefits!)
