I don’t have to go very often. I’m one of the lucky ones. Just me to feed and I can usually get by ok on my Social Security check.
But when your multi-million dollar electric company can’t be bothered to hire enough people to read your meter more often than every other month, and you couple that with record high tempuratures that sends your air conditioner into fatal overdrive, that $200+ billing statement added to the bill for fixing the air conditioner—well, it pretty much dictates where your limited $$ must go. And it ain’t on food.
I’ll likely see my sister-in-law and her husband there. He lost his job when his company moved to Mexico about 3 years ago and at his age all the experience he gained doesn’t count to employers so he’s still looking. She’s been cooking at the same kitchen for 30 years but her hours have been cut and raises have been few and far between over the years.
I’ll see a lot of others there too. Some I know, mostly strangers, but they will all have one thing in common. Mitt Romney isn’t worried about them. The republicans will continue to call them shiftless and lazy and drug users.
And most importantly, they will all suffer if the tea partiers make inroads in the upcoming election. They are all expendable in the eyes of the GOP.
