I read today that the Republican Congress, and soon Senate plans to cut, and eventually end many of the social safety nets. Already they have a plan to push the retirement age up to 69. They will try for 72. Also the payment folks will get will be one third less that now.
This will be lowered over a ten years period. Both Trump administrations. Medicare, and Medicaid are on the chopping block as well.
The whole Republican value system is that government has no business in our lives. Either to harm us or help us. It's basically that simple. At last they will be able to undo everything from FDR's New deal the Civil Rights Era, and the Great Society.
These latter attempts at a better nation are over,...over. They mean to return us to a "survival of the most opportunistic" culture. ...and it seems they will.
This will become an entirely 'other' kind of country.
A Grand Counter Revolution from the Top.
Such is how it is.
