Flood victims

I don’t understand why our government never has enough money to help out the flood victims in our area. But, they always find the money, food and medicine to help other countries when they have disasters. The same is true with our social security. We don’t get a raise for two years. Now this year, 2017, what we will get, is less than $50,000 for a whole year. Meanwhile, insurance companies will gobble that up and then some. Meanwhile, the politicians will get anywhere between $3,000 and $5,000 a year raise, plus benefits. It’s no wonder everybody wants to get into politics, big paycheck plus big benefits, and don’t have to show up for work more than a hundred days a year. In my opinion, Gabe Campana, our mayor, has overstayed his welcome, too.
