Dear President Obama,

Please help me! I am sure there are many others in my predicament as well!
Today, I cannot buy any food to get through the weekend.
Things got worse when Fed Ex charged my account for someone else's shipment. They are supposedly trying to reverse the charge, but in the meantime I am 53.00 short.
Then, it got even worse when our water utility company posted the "automatic" bill payment, when they were supposed to hold it up. Upon calling them they said they did not receive my confirming email. Funny, I have a copy of it. That was another 95.00I am overdrawn.
I tell you all of this because I resent being left behind when the negotiation to extend unemployment benefits was not approved in my favor.
I would work if I could, I have supported myself and my children all of my life until this last layoff. Now, I am embarrassed to tell my children and grown grandchildren I cannot even send them anniversary or birthday cards, they cost too much.
So, giving Syria assistance is a nice gesture, but don't forget us.
I am a registered democrat and have always voted that way. I have worked on precinct events, too!
Can you do anything to fix this???
