Share Your Story: The Flip Side of the Coin

How have domestic programs helped you or someone you know? Why is it important to you that Congress protect these programs?

  • Head Start makes it possible for me to go to work, knowing that my daughter is cared for, safe and getting a jump start on her education.
  • Without unemployment insurance, my family and I would never have been able to make our rent payment when I lost my job.
  • I worked for 30 years, and Social Security has helped me stay afloat in retirement, without leaning too hard on my children for support.
  • Medicaid and Medicare together provide my aging mother with the range of care she needs, including her long term care services.

Irresponsible spending cuts are threatening domestic programs that support low-income people like Social Security, Medicaid, Head Start, child care assistance, family planning, Pell Grants, housing assistance, maternal and child health care, Medicare, and unemployment insurance, and more. We know that cuts to these programs will have an extraordinarily harmful effect on women and families across the country. It's a price we can't afford to pay.

Hedge fund managers and CEOs with corporate jets are one side of the coin. The rest of us are the Flip Side of the Coin.

My name is Lorna Harron, and I base in USA...My life is back!!! After 2 years of Broken marriage, my husband left me with two kids . I felt like my life was about to end i almost committed suicide, i was emotionally down for a very long time. Thanks to a spell caster called Dr momodo, which i met online. On one faithful day, as I was browsing through the internet,I came across allot of testimonies about this particular spell caster. Some people testified that he brought their Ex lover back, some testified that he restores womb,cure cancer,and other sickness, some testified that he can cast a spell to stop divorce and so on. i also come across one particular testimony,it was about a woman called Sonia,she testified about how he brought back her Ex lover in less than 2 days, and at the end of her testimony she dropped Dr momodo's e-mail address. After reading all these,I decided to give it a try. I contacted him via email and explained my problem to him. In just 48hours, my husband came back to me. We solved our issues, and we are even happier than before Dr momodo, is really a gifted man and i will not stop publishing him because he is a wonderful man...

An amazing testimony on a spell caster who brought my wife back to me..My name is Andy Sowers,i live in Australia,and I'm happily married to a lovely and caring wife,with two kids.A very big problem occurred in my family seven months ago,between me and my wife.so terrible that she took the case to court for a divorce.she said that she never wanted to stay with me again,and that she didn't love me anymore.So she packed out of my house and made me and my children passed through severe pain. I tried all my possible means to get her back,after much begging,but all to no avail.and she confirmed it that she has made her decision,and she never wanted to see me again.So on one evening,as i was coming back from work,i met an old friend of mine who asked of my wife.So i explained every thing to her,so she told me that the only way i can get my wife back,is to visit a spell caster,because it has really worked for her too.So i never believed in spell,but i had no other choice,than to follow her advice. Then she gave me the email address of the spell caster whom she visited.{tataspelltemple@gmail.com}.So the next morning,i sent a mail to the address she gave to me,and the spell caster assured me that i will get my wife back the next day.What an amazing statement!! I never believed,so he spoke with me,and told me everything that i need to do. Then the next morning, So surprisingly, my wife who didn't call me for the past seven {7}months,gave me a call to inform me that she was coming back.So Amazing!! So that was how she came back that same day,with lots of love and joy,and she apologized for her mistake,and for the pain she caused me and my children. Then from that day,our relationship was now stronger than how it were before,by the help of a spell caster.So, i will advice you out there to kindly visit the same website {tataspelltemple@gmail.com},if you are in any condition like this,or you have any problem related to "bringing your ex back.So thanks to the tatalovespellcaster for bringing back my wife,and brought great joy to my family once again.{tataspelltemple@gmail.com},Thanks...

I raised 3 kids as a single mother for ten years.  My career was seriously impacted by bearing and raising 3 children but I made sacrifices and succeeded.    During that time I watched men making way more money than I did and it made me very angry.   Because I was raising 3 children I could not afford to put any money into a 401K or an IRA.   Now I am living on social security disability with medical issues.   There was no pension for me in the business world.  Women pay a high price in retirement because, quite simply, they are women.   We spend our life making sacrifices, and when retired, we see the men bringing in far more money than the women.   Our sacrifice continues until the day we die.   To dare to lower social security for women will only unlock the anger of women everywhere.   We are already retired with less money.   And we will live longer.   And we have less pensions, less savings, less of everything financial.  We are struggling.
