Dear Mr. President, How are we to care about our own Country when it's obvious to us that our own Goverment and President doesn't about us. We have worked and sweated just as much as them payed our taxes into everything that is asked of us and for what to be pushed aside and forgotton thrown in a draw until time run's out than on to other things people have lost all that they worked hard for. For the reason of one man's word that all in the Goverment bow down to well i am one of them person's and i speak now to you i want to know why the first real time i have to use unemployment and it run's out after 6 month's i reapplied get a extension and you all say were lazy don't want to work well i must say i have work up 3 jobs at times in my life to raise 3 children with out the help of their father's , and i'm a willing hard worker . Not at all lazy as been said we are all brother's and sisters in this country i am a true partriotic person , but when it come's pushing aside your own then i ask what happen along the way to our country and caring about your own people!!, our veterans , families !! Can you answer me on that...... Sincerely, Julie O B.
