    now with Sequester heating assistance will be cut off.  What a cruel world we live in where heating assistance will be cut off and the regulators are now giving the public utilities rate increases.  So now, those of us who were able to pay our utilities can no longer afford it with the rate increase and we can't apply for heating assistance since that will no longer be an option with the Sequester.  And if your on disability and/or social security like myself and my parents then if the chained CPI doesn't starve you, you now have the additional option of freezing to death in your home.  That is if the medical system doesn't charge you more with the cuts in Sequester and you die from not being able to afford healthcare.

    What kind of world are we living in that we do this to our seniors and disabled?  What kind of world do we live in where people don't have good paying jobs and students with college loans are indebted for life and working a $10.00 an hour part time job after graduating?
