Told Ya !

CNN: Meals On Wheels

Air traffic controllers got a reprieve from federal budget cuts when Congress felt public pressure after airport delays inconvenienced travelers.

But few expect a pardon for Meals on Wheels programs, which provide food and human contact for people over 60 who are physically housebound, socially isolated or very low income -- and in many cases, all three.
"They don't have high-priced lobbyists," said Alan Winstead, the executive director of Meals on Wheels of Wake County in Raleigh, N.C. 

Told ya.
I told you that this government of the rich will solve their problems by taking from the poor and middle class and giving it to themselves. I also told you that they would balance the budget upon our backs.

There are few historians and film makers who document the agonies of the less well-to-do in times of severe economic disruption, so we tend to think that back in the day, during the Depression of such-and-such a time or the Recession of 19-aught-whatever it wasn't so bad...  our parents got through, right?

They were among the lucky who did not end in a n unmarked grave in a potter's field.

The Congress will throw each and every one of us to the wolves so that they may endure until the tide turns, and happy times are here again.
The poor and the elderly do not get on an airplane every day; it is the wealthy, the rich, the business people, and the corporate types that do, and they are the apparent constituency that Congress heeds.
