  •  I have to admit the first thing I thought was FU. (5+ / 0-)

    just for hoping that SS checks would be delayed.

    That is so painfully evil and if you don't know why you have your head in the sand.

    Many if not most people on Social Security-elderly and disabled-live paycheck to paycheck.

    Missing ONE CHECK even for a few weeks means NO heat NO food NO medication and worse...no rent for the millions who rent.

    I am one of those people, disabled. YOu just wished catastrophe on me and I do not appreciate it. Clearly you do not understand (it would be worse to assume you don't give a damn) how so many people have to live.

    Even if I weren't dependent on my SSDI check I would have been appalled by your statement. And the uprating someone gave you.

    There are other Kossacks here reading what you wrote who are living check to check on SSI/SSDI and, like me, were in a state of high anxiety that their check wouldn't come.

    If Democrats don't understand how the most vulnerable live and what they need and care about it, I am entirely alarmed. I wonder if other people here think as you do. If they do, no wonder why the Republicans feel they can slash away at the social safety net with impunity.
