Thanks for all of the support and words. I had my night of crying and now am just plain mad. As my dd's friends say...it's not wise to make Deb mad! My neighbor is an attorney that works for the Attorney General's office (AG is democrat..thank heavens) He is researching to see if there is anywhere that this ignorant gov has gone against fed guidelines on the program cuts. He feels that there is. We worked on it some today and will continue throughout the week. I also talked with a friend of mine. He is an excellent attorney and he is going to see what type of lawsuit needs to be filed to stop this.
Jo-Ann, I am now of full disability. I did receive SSI last yr until the disability was approved. From what I understand, since I will turn 55 the end of this month, I should qualify for medicare..due to the approved disability. I worked, off and on, for the State of Mo for 19 1/2 yrs. I was told this past week that I can start drawing on my retirement but it will only be $200 a month until I am 65. Give me a break! I told the gal to do some refiguring because I had worked to earn that money and I am NOT planning on waiting until I am 65 to get it. Let me know when you are going to have that march. I will be there. WAsn't there a movie that had Roseann Barr in it. She got a group of women together and they got even with x-husbands and bosses? Sounds like a heck of an idea to me.
