And yet my poor mother who has to have round the clock nursing care in a nursing home and because of that all of her money is gone, her home has to be sold, and I feel terribly guilty because I can’t pay her bill,has to provide so much documentation to apply for Medicaid to help pay for her care, it’s taken me months to collect. And my dad who passed away would be devastated he needed government help.
So I’m feeling depressed over my parents, money and chasing all of this documentation and then filling out the application I read “ if you are pregnant and/or illegal proof of citizenship and birth are not required”.
I’m so sick of this. No ID needed for Government (our) money, to vote, who knows what else? Because my parents did things the right way, to
the best of their abilities, they’re screwed. I miss my dad terribly but I’m glad he’s not around to see this.
The dirty little secret is that certain ethnicities get “rubber stamped” into entitlement programs whereas other non-ethnicities are almost always audited and required to provide reams of documentation. These agencies don’t want any trouble from community organizer types like Jesse and Al so they “overlook” the requirement for documentation on non caucasian types.
I saw this in two cases. I used to work for subsidized housing where they’d make non-minorities jump through several flaming hoops documentation-wise, whereas minorities who would drive in with their lexus or gigantic late model SUVs with a employment ID around their necks from the local fortune 500 would get on the program with virtually no questions asked.
I also have two children; one happens to be bi-racial. At one time before I turned conservative (after two weeks of working for subsidized housing and simultaneously listening to Rush) I qualified for reduced priced lunches for my two children. EVERY.SINGLE.TIME they would audit my DAUGHTER who is caucasian and would NEVER EVER audit my SON who is bi-racial. I asked just why that was and I got a lot of “um, uh, um” like Obummer during a speech.
