Disability, Razzle Dazzle, and How Obama let Me Down

You won’t know it from the press reports. All you’ll hear today is that Barack Obama and Congress have struck a deal to keep to government running until after the presidential elections next Fall. I’ve heard exulting on behalf of the President—have already seen in on Huffington Post and other online news sites. What’s lost in the narrative is that Social Security Disability, a program that keeps millions of people alive, has been cut and moreover, it will be cut even more in the future.

Excuse me while I mourn. There are real lives in the balance. I’m dismayed by the cruelty of the Washington Bubble Classes.

Right now I’m so distressed I can barely type.

Silly me. To care about the elderly, the broken, veterans.
