Working sometimes a double shift. But if the person was healthy and planned
he would have bought a house in a modest neighborhood. Maybe with government
help. Maybe the person married another modest earner. They had the children

Social Security income but it is guaranteed and they have health insurance
guaranteed as well.
All that because of the stability of our Country that has the resources and
the political infrastructure to keep it that way. Can we say that of any
other country in the hemisphere except Canada?
