1. This fucking sucks.

If my worse enemy came to my door and was hungry, I would feed that person.

This is just morally WRONG.

Medical care, food, clothing, shelter...this nation needs to put people first and I don't mean the 1% at the top.

Iím calling my congresspeople and whatever Tulsi is to beg them to please find a way to intervene.

3. Homeless people

I volunteer at a homeless shelter. Some of the people there work, but not necessarily full time and certainly not at a living wage. Others manage to make a few bucks under the table.

Others are just unable to work. Mental health issues. Physical disabilities (which may be exempt?). Single mothers. Addiction. No local, reliable transportation. Criminal records.

Reducing benefits like this is just cruel. There's no other word for it. People will die because of this.

4. The only SURE THING to do is maake sure every eligible voyer you know votes againse DT in November.

Stuff like this is what he & the others in his party want to do. I can't tell you how many times I've heard "There shouldn't be any welfare. People need to get off their lazy butts and get a job. There's thousands of jobs available now.

They think everybody who can't work because of a medical problem is on SS, and when I ask them what about children, their response is their father has to take care of them.

The ONLY solution I can see is to make sure the Repubs are removed from the majority.
