Congress Should Be Ashamed of Themselves

I'm a physically challenged individual who collects SSDI, but it's not enough to pay all of my bills. Even though I am confined to a wheelchair, I still worked to maintain my home, pay bills and attend to my daughter. I lost my job in June of 2013, the unemployment benefits were used to pay my gas, electric and keep some gas in my van; what happens now? After paying my monthly bills, I don't have enough left for groceries; however the Human Services Department says I make to much to get food assistance. Congress should really be ashamed of themselves for letting people suffer. Congress doesn't miss a beat. They still get healthcare and a paycheck (with our tax money); however they can take a Christmas break along with all of the other break's they take. I hope that people who vote will not elect the same people back into office! My heart goes out to people who are worse off then I am, at least I do get SSDI. There are some people who don't. CONGRESS SHOULD BE ASHAMED !!!!!
