    Why Obama National Debt is now $16.5 TRILLION.

    SHAMEFUL.This is one major reason why the Obama National Debt is now $16.5 TRILLION.
    So Sad but oh so true! Latham Ford is in Upstate NY, near Albany.

    From Tom Selkis (Latham Ford) Facebook... True story at the dealership.....
    "I'll try to make this as short and to the point as I can.

    One of my salesmen here had a women in his office yesterday wanting to lease a brand new Focus. As he was reviewing her credit app with her he noticed she was on social security disability. He said to her, you don't look like you're disabled and unable to work. She said well I'm really not, I could work if I wanted to but I make more now than I did when I was working and got hurt.(non-disabling injury)

    She said the gov't sends her 1,500.00 a month in 1 check, she gets 700.00 a month on an EBT card (food stamps), and 800.00 a month for rent. Oh yeah and 250 minutes free on her FREE phone. That is just south of 3,500.00 a month.

    When she was working she was taking home about 330.00 per week. Do the math and then ask yourself why should she go back to work. If you multiply that by millions of people you start to realize the scope of the problem we face as a country. Once the socialist have 51% of the population in that same scenario we are finished!!!!!!!

    The question is when do we cross that threshold if we haven't already?

    She didn't lease the Focus here because the dealer down the road beat our deal by 10.00/month.

    Glad to know she is so frugal with OUR hard earned money.
