Bush's comission has recognized that many elderly women are living in poverty because of the quirks in the social security system. I know women who are trying to make it on social security retirement of $450/mo. I think most Americans with an average income of $40,000 a year assume that seniors are well taken care of and would be shocked to meet people who worked all of their lives and are old and poor.
Typically, Dems programs abuse the people they claim to care about with little stipends. Meanwhile, they rip off the taxpayers so that they retire to elegant landed estates.
Furthermore, it is clear to me that they were up to their eyes in hyping the "new economy" and creating the tech speculative bubble.
You are so right about a lot of older women who survive on very little. They really need help and should have been helped years ago instead of the DemocRATs going around scaring them.
AARP has done a louzy job too IMO as they have fallen for the same scare tactics and reported them to their members as the truth. That to me is irresponsible on their part.
My Mom told AARP to take their magazine and keep it several years ago after they kept lying in articles.
