The cuts would really hit our house hold hard since my disability check is our only income. My wife can't work because she has a full time job taking care of me. Please help by signing the petition.
Its not just a bill their trying to pass, their messing with our lively hood.

Cutting funding for services that help people with disabilities to achieve their fullest potential, and maintain their independence, is NOT the way to go. Been wheelchair bound lately or tried even the simplest of tasks at home, blindfolded, hearing cut off AND without any direction from someone who cares?

Unless a government is a just and fair government, it is no government at all. We take care of our children, we do not hide them away as was done in the age of Joe Kennedy because his daughter was less than perfect. We love our children and give them the best life we can. Unfortunately, there are times when we, taxpayers, are able to provide the total cost of the care that is given to the same children of non-tax paying families. Give us the just and fair treatment, help us provide the best...

The needs of these special people should not be taken away. Let the government give up all their free money.
