Tricky group

They’re at it again.

Tricky, tweety Trump is now considering privatizing Veterans Affairs. Republicans earlier prodded us into having prisons privatized. That was a failure and government authorities soon rescinded that movement.

That same tricky group of profiteers, otherwise known as the GOP, has time and again attempted to privatize Social Security and Medicare.

The administrative cost of Social Security is currently less than 1 percent. Though arguable, it is generally accepted that only 3 percent of Medicare money now goes to administration.

Folks, there is only one reason the GOP wants to privatize anything. They wring their hands and say, “Look at all the money we can make for ourselves over here.”

These turkeys are not looking out for you.
