Here we go again. The economy is going down the tubes because nobody has any extra money to spend and what’s the politicians answer to that, LETS RAISE LOCAL, STATE,AND FEDERAL TAXES! Before you raise my taxes AGAIN, why don’t you do something about the entitlement and assistance give outs! Why not look into why Social Security Disability cases have went up 1000 percent in the past few years! You know them, the 20 to 40 year olds that claim to have a bad back or knee or some mental disorder that some dime store Dr. or psych therapist signs off on. You see these mooches at Big Y or Shop and Shop, perfectly healthy, buying snacks with their food stamp card, even though they have a wallet full of money. And what about the baby-mama living in a hotel room for $3,000 a month at the tax payers expense. This is the same baby-mama you see in Dunkin Donuts calling her baby-daddy on her cell phone, which we also are paying for, asking him what he wants in his coffee coolatta, then paying for it with her food stamp Ccard! Public assistance is supposed to be a temporary fix, NOT a career! I’m tired of supporting laziness, I’m Jim from Westfield and I’m not going to take it anymore!
