OAS & C.P.P.

Post by retired2 on Thu Apr 30, 2015 10:47 pm

OAS & C.P.P. - an entitlement? GREY POWER-- QUIET NO MORE

ONE REALLY BAD THING IS THAT A GREAT MANY SENIORS HAVE NO INTERNET TO RECEIVE EMAILS LIKE THIS ONE,


I would like to state that I was NOT OPPOSED
to the Canadian Government donating as a gift a blanket to
Prince George BUT I do have a hard time understanding the government donating $100,000.
to a children's charity in England while people in High River and seniors are struggling
to stay afloat. Doesn't make sense to me.
Where in the world did the government come up with this money and WHY.

GREY POWER-- QUIET NO MORE--
POLITICIANS PAY ATTENTION!



The Harper government is saying that at this moment
they cannot afford to make changes to the C.P.P.

They are also saying that seniors will have to start paying

for meds and health care after age 65 because of the strain on the system.

I think that it is time that we let him know what we think ......

CANADA: a country where we have:

…. homeless without shelter,
…. children going to bed hungry,
…. hospitals being closed,
…. average income families who can't afford dental care,
…. elderly going without 'needed' meds and having to
travel 100's of miles for medical care
…. with no reimbursement of cost,
…. vehicles we can't afford gas for,
…. lack of affordable housing,
…. mentally ill without treatment, etc.,etc.

YET.....

They have a 'benefit' for the people of Haiti,

Ships and planes lining up with food, water, tents,
clothes, bedding, doctors, and medical supplies.

What the HECK is wrong with us??? …………….

WAKE UP CANADA !!!!

Someone please tell me what is wrong with all

the people that run this country!

We're "broke" & can't help our own

Seniors, Veterans, Orphans, Homeless, etc.
yet we spent 1.2 billions of dollars for G-20 events!

In the last few months we have provided aid to

Haiti , Chile, and Turkey , as well as Kazakhstan,
Pakistan and all the others - literally,
BILLIONS of OUR dollars!!

Imagine if the GOVERNMENT gave 'US' the same
support they give to other countries.

Our retired seniors living on a 'fixed income' receive

no aid nor do they get any breaks while our government
and charitable organizations pour hundreds of millions of
our dollars and tons of food into foreign countries!

They call Old Age Security and Healthcare an entitlement
even though most of us have been paying for it all our working lives and now when it’s time for us to collect, the government is running out of money ? Why did the government borrow from these programs in the first place?

Entitlement my Foot, I paid cash for my Old Age Security and

CANADA PENSION PLAN.!!!!

Just because they borrowed money from these programs,

doesn't make my benefits some kind of charity or handout!

Gold plated MP pensions and benefits, a.k.a. free healthcare, outrageous retirement packages, 67 paid holidays, 20 weeks
paid vacation, unlimited paid sick days --- now that's welfare, and they have the nerve to call me a 'greedy senior' and my retirement, an entitlement.

Sad isn't it?

Lets hope it creates awareness!

DO YOUR PART!

Things will only change when this kind of email
translates into voting results at the polls.

As of today, seniors out number ANY OTHER type of voter
even by race, religion, or age group.

WHEN ARE SENIORS going to wake up and understand

WE have the POWER to shape legislation?

All WE need is the will power to do so!

PLEASE SEND THIS BACK AROUND TO ALL YOUR FRIENDS

MAYBE THEN THE "GREY REVOLUTION" will begin.
