I am just little upset over the fact that I have worked my entire adult life from 18 to 55 when I became disabled and I am about $400 over the limit to receive any help for my meds however people I know that have been on govt. assistance programs raising their children and are now on ssi can still receive more benefits from the gov. for healthcare than someone who has worked and paid way more into the system.
