About lifelessons

My blog, which started out to be about overcoming grief, quickly grew into a blog about celebrating life. I post daily: poems, photographs, essays or stories. I've lived in countries all around the globe but have finally come to rest in Mexico, where I've lived since 2001. My books may be found on Amazon in Kindle and print format, my art in local Ajijic galleries. Hope to see you at my blog.

    It appears that this was suggested as a Constitutional Amendment, which would require ratification by 2/3 of the states. I somehow don’t think that’s likely to happen.

    This happened (apparently) last April? Now I admit I’m a dim wit when it comes to ‘news’ like that, but (again, apparently) nothing happened, or nothing really bad? I had a cow over this btw…. and am now scrubbing out my mind because I stuck my foot in my mouth virtually. :* It doesn’t pay to try to think when one is already stressed out. 😐

      Here is an excerpt from the above link:

      Donald Trump won’t say it, but Republicans in the Senate will: Social Security and Medicare would be on the chopping block in a second Trump term. Pointing to rising deficits, Republican senators have all but promised to gut entitlements if Trump gets four more years.

      Sen. John Thune (R-SD), the second-ranking Senate Republican, expressed hope to the New York Times that Trump would be “interested” in reforming Social Security and Medicare. Sen. John Barrasso (R-WY) was even more optimistic. “We’ve brought it up with President Trump, who has talked about it being a second-term project,” Barrasso said. Senate Leader Mitch McConnell (R-KY) has made no secret of wanting to cut Social Security.
