Other people's money

 Back when the country was founded we decided that the people should rule, it is our country not some king or noble classes. We are now 31 trillion dollars in debt and the people we elect believe it is more important to buy votes than to be fiscally responsible. Keep in mind that every time some new proposal comes out of Washington we can't afford what we are already doing. The Biden administration tried to buy some votes with student debt forgiveness, luckily the courts seem to have declared that unconstitutional. Now Joe and the Democrats are proposing spending 36 billion dollars to shore up under funded pensions for the Central States teamsters unions. Now I bear no animus toward these teamsters but it is not the job of the government to pay these pensions. If they are under funded through fraud or malfeasance have the DOJ go after the employers or the unions to have them make good. 

 We've heard for years how Social Security and Medicare ore going broke and that the prudent thing to do is to save so that we can eventually retire. If Biden wants to help retirees he ought to work at shoring up SS instead of trying buy a block of votes with somebody else's money.
