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.

A humbled man answered me and i told him everything about my health and he asked me if i have an email and i said yes, he told me to send it to him and i did exactly. He sent me a form to fill which i did and send it back to him. On the 3rd day he told me that he need some items which he would use in casting the spell off me but the items he required for is hardly to be found here in USA so, he told me to send just 500us dollars which he will use to buy the items in Nigeria. I sent the money through western union, that very afternoon after he had bought the items he told me on the phone to received my healing. That very day before night fall he called me and told me to go to the nearest hospital for check up. ln the next morning my personal doctor came and made a test on me but behold i was confirmed HIV negative by my doctor.

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.
