    every couple of months and telling me our income has gone up when it's gone down would be a start. As for how long, I don't see where that's an issue at this point. Both Dad and I are permanently disabled. That's just fact. I worked as long as I could, he's been disabled since birth. Our room mate is working on finding a better job, but as everyone knows, those are scarce right now. Eventually the kids will grow up and we'll be better off because we'll be supporting fewer people. Right now, I'd like to get through the next month, or the next year.

    Acknowledgement of the situation people are in, instead of pointing fingers and accusations of laziness would be nice from our representatives. Working to improve funding for programs that help the poor and improve the economy instead of submarining the whole lot because they feel like it would help as well.

    This diary wasn't really about what I want the government to do. It was about facing the realities of the situation in America. There are a lot of families worse off than we are. There are a lot of families in our situation or on the brink of it.

    What do I want from my state and federal government? How about a realistic world view and acknowledgement that  we exist?
