America Used To Be A Great Country

My mother just got approved for disability and Medicaid 3 days ago. Now I'm reading that congress is trying to drastically cut benefits to people that need it the most. My mother has COPD, Mental health issues, Serious back pain, Diabetes, and now there is fibrosis forming in her lungs. She can't even walk to the bathroom without gasping for breath. How is it fair that right after she is approved she can lose precious benefits? She needs to see a doctor for various issues AT LEAST twice a month. There is no way she can work and with only $900 a month in SSI payments, how is she supposed to afford her medical bills if she can't even afford supplemental insurance? Why is it that our government is constantly trying to slash benefits to the people that need them the most while giving the rich breaks all the time. America is not the country it used to be. I used to be proud to be from the USA. But these days, I'm not so sure...
