What do you intend to do to help those who are unable to work and are disabled?


Dear President Obama,
I'm 41 years of age and on SSI. I have Multiple Sclerosis and Fibromyalgia. I am in a wheelchair.
I' was diagnosed in 2001. I can't work, not only that but a couple days ago I popped my ankle and it's
going to take some time to heal.
I've supported you and I've had faith in you for two terms. I still do. Now I need your help. I receive Medicaid
and I'd like to get back into the work field but I also have Chronic lower Back pain. I've had that about the
same length of time that I was diagnosed with M.S. and Fibromyalgia.
Now my question to you is how can you help me.
Please get back to me once you see this e-mail.

Sincerely,
Julia Rappeport
