I am one of the Millions who just lost their benefits without a warning letter. I woke up.. in a state of panic. I am a 45 year old woman caring for my mother who is battling cancer. We are now.. unable to pay rent, bills, or have money for food. I had to close out my bank account that I worked a year to have. I had to bounce a check for my electric bill that I can't pay. I will need to be evicted and seek shelter and food pantry assistance if this stale mate situation that is now in the Red.. continues. The 99ers.. had 2-3 years of extensions. We deserves the same respect and consideration. Our children will have no where to live.. and won't be able to eat.. in order to keep the lights on. Will there be an Emergency Executive Order to over ride the Senates Obstruction of legislation that is suppose to be for the people.
