Found this circulating on the net, is it true, do you think ?
Subject: Fw: CPP and OAS not an entitlement!!!!!
POLITICIANS PLEASE PAY ATTENTION!
FORWARDING THIS TO EVERYBODY!!!
‘Entitlement’ my ass, I paid cash for my Old Age Security and CPP!!!! Just because they borrowed the money, doesn’t make my benefits some kind of charity or handout! Gold plated MP pensions after only 6 years as MP and Civil Service Government benefits, aka free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, 20 weeks paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days, now that’s welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a ‘greedy senior’ and my retirement, an ‘entitlement’ !!!!!!…..scroll down…………….
What the HELL’s wrong with us???
WAKE UP CANADA!!!!
Someone please tell me what the HELL’s wrong with all the people that run this country!!!!!!
We’re "broke" & can’t help our own Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless etc.,??????????? but spent 1.2 billions of dollars for G-20 events!
In the last few months we have provided aid to Haiti, Chile , and Turkey . And now Afghanistan, Pakistan …… outlaw home of bin Laden. Literally, BILLIONS of our DOLLARS!!!
Our retired seniors living on a ‘fixed income’ receive no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government and religious organizations pour hundreds of billions of $$$$$$’s and tons of food to foreign countries!
They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money. Why did the government borrow from it in the first place? We have hundreds of adoptable children who are shoved aside to make room for the adoption of foreign orphans.
CANADA: a country where we have homeless without shelter, children going to bed hungry, hospitals being closed, average income families who can’t afford dental care, elderly going without ‘needed’ meds and having to travel 100’s of miles for medical care with no reimbursement of cost, vehicles we can’t afford gas for, lack of affordable housing, and mentally ill without treatment – etc., etc.
They have a ‘Benefit’ for the people of Haiti ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents, clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical supplies.
Imagine if the *GOVERNMENT* gave ‘US’ the same support they give to other countries.
Sad isn’t it?
99% of people won’t have the guts to forward this.
I’m one of the 1% — I Just Did.
