Stop Budget Cuts to Disability Services

Social Security has not been a contribution to the country's deficit, so cutting funding in this area should never have even been considered. Help stop this monstrosity before it begins by telling the Obama Administration not to cut Social Security.

thx Teresa, of course signed. Though sometimes it might seem "unnecessary" to post these as most of us also get their email alerts,(once you've signed any of them you get them automatically like with all other orgs) it is still useful as experience has shown that we actually all get quite different causes mailed to us. Also nobody here has the time to go through their entire list offered on site.

Sending a Green Star is a simple way to say "Thank you"
You cannot currently send a star to Ruth because you have done so within the last day.

Teresa, thank you so much for posting! I was not aware of this until I got your card. I prefer the term 'different-abled' rather than 'disabled.' Any way you phrase it, special needs citizens need their entire social security check...the IRS already cuts it in half so to have Obama agree to this new outcome just adds personal insult to my 53 yr old brain injury!!

Unheard unreasonable indifference. Certainly signed and noted. People with disabilities and so it goes to three times heavier than ordinary people. Plus the fact that in many countries is not provided for the disabled of congress of the wheelchair space, individual seats in public transport. Rather than increase the budget for the disabled, to provide them with a spa treatment in hospitals have separate wards for people with disabilities. Of course as in all countries, but to this day, hundreds of thousands of disabled people suffer from indifference to them by the state and society. Many disabled people can work even in the intellectual sphere, but they do not want to teach, and in fact the envy of persistence disabled of ordinary people, some people with disabilities can make a variety of small items, but few want to svyazyvatsya with disabilities. So Obama wants to cut the budget for the disabled, if this is done, then all sensible people should think of his human qualities. Should I trust these people destiny of the people? Your elders, your children, yourself.
People with disabilities are very difficult to survive in our society ... VERY DIFFICULT.
As if the state did not apply to them, we should look to those who live next to us, to those who are around us. Who is this old man on crutches? Who's that girl in the wheelchair ivalidnoy? Who lay on a bed in a nearby apartment with a distorted face of the terrible pain and can not get out of bed?
And now Imagine yourself in their place.

read and noted and signed the petition on on 5-3-13 its just sad to see that these idiots in office have nothing better to do so in order to save their butts and jobs they decide to make cuts to the disabled a lot of these folks need every penny that's coming to them they are just like the rest of us we all need our income to survive quit being spine-less and do the right thing if you all need something to do try fixing our economy and get us all back to work we all pay into our social security so leave it alone and try doing something worth while for once.

Noted, signed and shared around. My lovely, dear, younger sister, has cerebral palsy, and is on disability living allowance, as well as mobility allowance. She gets a car to drive around every three years. Her willingness to work hard in a job she loves outweighs most other people I know. People who are disabled in whatever they are deserve every right to show how they can positively contribute to societies.

this is how it is for the disabled pretty much everywhere on the planet. Anything that helps them is the easiest thing to cut, and the rest of us aren't even aware of it. They are the least able to fight for themselves, and when they try, who is there to help them get their voices heard, and who will listen?

Absolutely signed, but I do wish some of the people I know that are on this were looked into better, the system is broken. Don't deny people that want to work, but are so ill they can't resources and help to live as a functioning human being. It is insulting!

Again, Thank you Teresa ~ you have two front page stories for sure! xx

S+N - as a person who had to leave the work force due to disability, and now my SSI is very small - I will face tremendous hardship if any changes are made, I would face hardship at any rate - but this is inexcusable!
