Growing Up Poor by Bert Langeberg


Growing Up Poor by Bert Langeberg

Growing Up Poor reveals Bert Langeberg's heroic journey from a hardscrabble life on a family farm in Wisc in the 40s and 50s. The US is facing many problems related to our government over spending and going into debt to correct supposed social injustices. These problems range from health care, social security, poor education and global warming. To gain a perspective on how we lived before government spending by FDR promised to cure these social problems Growing Up Poor portrays a simpler time when we had low cost home remedies for minor cuts, bruises, aches, pains and the common cold. Nowdays the government forces all emergency rooms to accept and treat all patients for all these minor problems many without payment. These mandates to get votes from low income patients and illegal aliens have caused health care costs to skyrocket. Bert delves into our Social Security system from his accounting perspective. His insight into the system reveals serious flaws that will need to be fixed in the next few years.
