I think we found where the cuts should be made! If you agree... Pass it on!
Occupy Wallstreet should also be occupying Congress by bombarding them with the above information and a continued request for reduction in their benefits until the move in that direction. Their health insurance should match an average BlueCross policy, mine for a family of 4 is $2,000 per month with huge deductible and 20% copay, no vision or braces covered. Their pensions should not exist at all and their salaries are too high. If you agree with me, cut the above statistics and make this a focus of the campaign.
