Here are some of the issues area residents are discussing. The statements were phoned in anonymously, so the Courier does not vouch for their veracity, nor do we know what motivated the callers:
It’s very peculiar how people didn’t protest about no-fault car insurance and when the government took that over and when the government took over the cable business. But now everybody wants to sue the government for taking over health care so everybody can have insurance. I personally know three people who died because they didn’t have money to pay for medication.
Does everyone know AAFES charges $2 a month if you don’t use a gift card that was given to you? The feds just passed a law that this is illegal.
Is there a company like AARP that’s filling out income taxes free for elderly people? I understand AARP is not doing it at the senior center here this year.
Our slide into socialism has started. This country is going to go to Hell very fast and it’s all your president’s fault. He’s not my president.
More proof the military is cutting benefits for retirees: For 10 years I’ve taken my income taxes to get filled out as a benefit. Now they tell me that has been cut for retirees. What’s next, shopping at the commissary?
