Alabama: Marcia Palos #40dollars

What does $40 mean to you?
$40 means no gas for the car. I live on $674 per month with a disabled son. Yes, you have increase the amount on an SSI check, but $40 is a lot. $5.00 is a lot. We are about to be out on the street. No Christmas tree this year. It makes me sad that so many have so much and I have worked. I was crushed by a car two years ago and have filed for disability. They have denied me. $40 does not even cover the water bill. No toys for my son this year. Only the essential clothing wrapped and Santa will have to leave them on the kitchen table. What has happened to America!
