  1. He once again has cut the people who need help the most. What about the person that is disabled trying to apply for disablity. Or the person who lost has lost a job. What about the women that are trying to rebuild lives after being abused. These cuts are a disgrace. Do you really think people are living off the system at $205.00 a month!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    • I have lived on it in the past and know 2 people right now who have been living on it while they wait for a decision from Social Security, so while hard to imagine, it is a reality that some people don’t have any choice but to live on this amount while they wait for other services to kick in as they work to rebuild their lives.

  2. I can understand why the gov’t wants to cut public assistance, but for them cut this on hard working people like myself who always maintained employment is a total disgrace.
