Your taxes at work
When I was a kid (in the '60s), there always seemed to be signs along road construction sites touting something like "YOUR TAX DOLLARS AT WORK". I suppose to those who work for government, they are happiest proclaiming that look at what we are giving back to you, leaving out the part that you might not be getting back 100% of your tax dollar.
Due to many things, I'm reapplying for Social Security disability benefits. I hadn't wanted to do that, but consideration must be paid to do whatever is necessary. It's not receiving the benefits per se, but that you have to view your own life's challenges objectively. And I have.
As some readers do know, that I have had um...issues...with that agency. But all options have to be considered. Life is good, and another fight may ensue with the govt. But sparring and ending up the victor is almost...exhilarating. My tax dollars at work.
