Hands down, the worst Christmas in my 65 years

I am disabled and work for Progressive every day of my life, esp. for poor elderly and disabled folks. The most vulnerable, we will get hit hard and hit first. We have no $$ for lobbyists. A single person with a pension of $10Grand a year will go to $5Grand a year. No one can live on $5grand a year. In Walker's Wisconsin a single adult gets $16 a month in FoodStamps. Lucky to be on Medicare. If Cheeto fucks with that, we will all be dead. I still cry at the drop of a hat. Rallied some with recounts and EC miracle. Out of miracles. Living in Wisconsin, we know how it will go down. IT IS BAD. Everyone will have to live in a shit country, but at least they will still have roofs, and autos and money and medical options. Not us. Sorry for whining, but needed to say it out loud here. Have to pretend to have some hope for my people, for their sakes. But I do NOT.

2. Thank you!

You are doing important work and it does not go unnoticed. It is all the more important now.

There is hope, but it is inside of us, not somewhere external to us.

3. *tears*.

Please keep speaking. Your voice is important - and your message needs to be read/internalized by others.

4. So Sorry

It's not whining. It's sharing how you feel. They say hope springs eternal but it sure can be an elusive little critter.

5. I live in WI too

and feel your pain. I am angry and afraid. Trump and his henchmen are Walker on steroids. Hold your loved ones close and know you're not alone, and those of who can will do our best to help those who need us.

6. It seems as if no one with the name Scott or Rick...

...should be elected to office of any kind -

Scott Walker
Rick Scott (double whammy)
Rick Snyder
Scott Brown
Rick Perry

They all suck.
