    there are millions more of us out here just waiting and waiting for help that doesn't come.

    I've been unemployed for four years, with no benefits and no insurance or health care. Where are the jobs? I'd love to pay taxes -- if only I had an income on which to pay them. Where is the help for me to get by day to day? (My daughter pays for everything for me except health care -- which I get none of.)  My son goes to community college after working full-time all day, and my daughter couldn't afford to go at all so she just skipped it.

    What planet do you live on? Sounds like one in which all the benefits accrue to you and yours, and the rest of us can just go piss up a rope as long as you're all right.

    Thanks for all your compassion.

    And I'll be a BIT more thankful if any of those glowing promises made today come true. Like the much-vaunted health insurance reform bill that left me hanging out to dry, exactly as I predicted, I'm not going to expect much from the fancy talk until I see the actual results.
