jleigh: I know exactly what you mean. Our son lost hisa job four years ago, and because of all the illegals in our state, with illegal Social Security nmbers etc., taking all the jobs, we have been supporting he and his two toddlers on our Social Security. I have refuse dto join Medicare until obumblercare has been repealed. It would cost my husband and I around $200- $250 a month EACH. I ony get a lousy $600 a month and have to pay taxes on that too.
