The well baby 5 day hospital bill and surgery on the wife, everything, lock, stock, and barrel, out the door was $1,800 31 years ago. Anyone want to bet it's not over 30K in today's world of government mandated treatments, services, and hospital stays?
If you think the cost of life has gone up, on a sadder note, my mother pasted away on September 29 2012. Yesterday me and her grandchildren made the funeral arrangements. We used the same home we did for my father 28 years ago. Before making my mother's arrangements I asked to see my father's funeral invoice. In 28 years the cost of dying has rose 400%.
The quantitative easing some of you seem to be so fond of is little more than a hidden but cruel tax on the life savings of the middle class. At the same time the low intrest rates on deposits is just another way for Obama to use his class warfare pitard to blow the guts out of the middle class he claims he cares for. At the same time he is double crossing teachers, and union members who have large amounts of IRA or pention fund monies on deposit. Today the union members pentions are worth less than they were yesterday, and tomorrow will be worth less than they are today, and Obama has you blaiming... WAL-MART!!! It would be funny if it were not so sad.
