‘Too Little Too Late’: Bankruptcy Booms Among Older Americans - The New York Times

‘Too Little Too Late’: Bankruptcy Booms Among Older Americans - The New York Times | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
The rate of those 65 and older filing for bankruptcy is three times what it was in 1991, a new study finds, as more enter their later years in a precarious position.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Reagan’s trickle down economy is now in full bloom for the aging. Wages and unions suppression meant those that drew employer’s pensioners and social security drew lower pensions later and those that retire on savings had far less to save! Gains rigged for the 1% also play a factor in the shift of real wealth to the top. Gains of the 1990’s were loaned through credit with the interest to the working class rather than shared through better real wages. Everyone suddenly saw easy to get credit cards in everywhere. Deferred compensation benefits were offered instead of upfront great wages then were later reversed and declared entitlements rather than deferred compensation. Reality! We need to change this going forward!

Top Koch official fires back at critics: We are not an 'appendage' of the GOP

Top Koch official fires back at critics: We are not an 'appendage' of the GOP | AUSTERITY & OPPRESSION SUPPORTERS  VS THE PROGRESSION Of The REST OF US | Scoop.it
Senior Koch official issues letter amid days of brewing tension between President Trump and the influential group of predominantly conservative and libertarian activists.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
Personally I think he is right the Koch’s and their wicked political structure is not an appendage of the GOP the GOP is A Koch appendage that could be amputated when no longer needed. The Koch’s and their libertarian organizations are more like an appendage of Satan.... only real libertarians don’t believe in God or Satan. They believe they are the only one they must ever truly answer to. The so called “Rational” Virtues and Morality of Selfishness vs the Spiritual Morality of Altruism. Which morality is left dominating will determine the daily lives and outcomes of our lives of generations to come in the fairly near as well as the far future of humanity.

State legislators are pushing bills in at least 27 states after scores attended an event paid by two activist groups
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
New American libertarian Motto “In God we longer Trust” and “Selfishness is Our Virtue” continues to move through more and more State houses, Congress and now with Trump appointments of judges even the courts. All three branches are moving towards libertarian morality and call it conservative all you want but it is radical not conservative! While many attempt to align libertarianism with Christianity you cannot be both. One is Me first, America First, My own will and reason is the only reality in my life and the only thing to trust. The other is God’s will be done... I am altruistic, I am my brother’s keeper, I will love others as myself and feed the needy and heal the sick whether they deserve it or not.
