The government likes to play a game… It’s called screw over the disabled people.
When you are not able to work due to a medical or mental health condition, you should be able to get help from the U.S. government to be able to get funding for your family. Yet the U.S. government likes to play a game. They will make it to where you have to jump through so many hoops to get help and if you are married, they will hold that against you.
This is an example of what I mean. I am keeping the names out of the post for respect to them. I know of a married couple who are fighting to survive right now. The husband was on SSI and when his wife got a decent paying job, all his money, medical and assistance was yanked. The government said his wife got too much GROSS income for him to get the support. His wife lost her job and they were told that she was still getting too much GROSS income from unemployment to get the support and to try for it when she was off.
So they did and now they are NOT SURVIVING because the same U.S. government is making them jump through hoops. Both are disabled and one of them is a service veteran of the military.
How is this helping those in need? How does it teach the kids to help others when they see this behavior? Where is the understanding that people are different and still need respect??
