    I haven't worked since 2008. I'm no spring chicken either. They may get this fixed eventually, but that won't give me back the years of my life that I've lost. Those are gone forever, along with so many hopes and dreams for my child.

    It brings tears to my eyes when my child asks a question like "when we are going to have prime rib again." How do you answer a question like that, when the answer is that we are barely holding on by our fingertips and the cavalry isn't coming. There is nothing left for us to cut out of the budget in our household. My shoes have holes, my son is wearing last years school clothes. We'll be going down soon.

    And it really seems that these motherfuckers only care about winning elections.

    Meanwhile the ones who managed to not lose their jobs are eating and telling the rest of us to be patient and cut the guy some slack. Just like the ones who already have health insurance tell us not to worry about the Public Option etc.

    It's all a bunch of fucking bullshit.
