85 Year old Mother

My mom is 85 years old and has succumbed to medical conditions related to aging. I would like to know how come Congress takes it out on the people who can least afford it when they need to cut corners. My family, as well as myself, has contributed a lot to the system as long-time employees and tax payers. We count too because when we are able to work, our taxes help keep this big machine running. This is one of the richest nations in the world and I think it is a shame and disgrace the way our government rewards (I mean un-rewards us for our efforts)
