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.

Please share with us how domestic programs have helped you and your family.

St. Louia, MO, On disablility for Mental Illness, I punch the stigma refuse to allow people to think the worst of us

I taught Kindegarten for more years than I can count, mostly urban children. We used DAP, Developmentally , Appropriate Practices! Fabulous program great for excellent, experienced Teachers. Don't believe the way they're teaching Teachers to Teach could use this program. There is a place for Computers but never to replace a Great Teacher who knows her 23 children and their background, as I did! We also used Regio Amelia, began in Italy, Rome I believe.I also taught Early Childhood Special Education in the St. Louis Public School District, in the City. Had 10 children between the ages of 3-6 yrs old. All were a minimum of 2 to 3 yrs below their age level. Also had an Assistant who I was told when hired, was assertive no she was aggressive and would have too high of expectations for these children. I loved them all. She made some cry because she didn't understand these were children who looked 6 but were functioning on a 3yr old level woudl make them cry. I told her after consoling an hysterical child because he needed help getting his coat zippeer up, that she was on permanent break. She needed to be back to get children on the bus and on Fridays I didn't need her at all! She ended up Punching me in the face over and over until two men and a strong woman pulled her off me. The St. Louis Public Schools went throught the motions of a hearing, she didn't show up but i had an Educational Lawyer! Cut to the chase we were both fired, I had 15 witnesses didn't matter. My lawyer did not ask questions or request that I be allowed to take my things home, including published works in my desk. After all those wonderful years and collecting of precious books and all the rest were lost to me forever! I will always be a teacher in my heart and mind but will never work again as a Teacher. It was very traumatic. I doubt that the same thing would have happened in a County School. Became very depressed but happy again! Thank you for allowing me to tell you about my wonderful teaching experiences a couple of them with wonderful children and Parents!

In my idea aging is natural and happens to all, however not everyone knows how to accept it. Nowadays scientists have found a way to reverse aging process by stem cells.

TX, Texas, self employed

My name is Angela and am from USA, I want to use this opportunity to thank my great Doctor who really made my life a pleasurable one today. This great man Dr Osorba brought my husband back to me, i had two lovely kids for my husband, about four years ago i and my husband has been into one quarrel or the other until he finally left me for one lady. I felt my life was over and my kids thought they would never see their father again. I tried to be strong just for the kids but i could not control the pains that torments my heart, my heart was filled with sorrows and pains because i was really in love with my husband. Every day and night i think of him and always wish he would come back to me, until one day i met a good friend of mine that was also in a situation like me but her problem was her ex-boyfriend who she had an unwanted pregnancy for and he refused to take responsibility and dumped her. she told me that mine was a small case and that i should not worry about it at all, so i asked her what was the solution to my problems and she gave me this great man’s email address. I was doubting if this man was the solution, so i contacted this great man and he told me what to do and i deed them all, he told me to wait for just 48 hours and that my husband will come crawling on his kneels just for forgiveness so i faithfully did what this great man asked me to do and for sure after 48 hours i heard a knock on the door, in a great surprise i saw him on his kneels and i was speechless, when he saw me, all he did was crying and asking me for forgiveness, from that day, all the pains and sorrows in my heart flew away, since then i and my husband and our lovely kids are happy, that’s why i want to say a big thank you to Dr Osorba Spiritual Temple. This great man made me to understand that there is no problem on earth that has no solution so please if you know that you have this same problem or any problem that is similar, i will advise you to come straight to this great man. You can email him at: osorbaspiritualspelltemple@gmail.com you can also visit his blog on http://osorba.blog.co.uk
