Arbor Care, We Care? Really?

Dear Editor,

I do not know if I address this to our Governor Paterson, or our Mayor Bloomberg. I know you both have big plans for the stimulus money, but in fact will any of this really benefit me or you? I doubt it! I mean, maybe if they gave some of the highway money to the MTA to cover their losses, it would benefit the everyday person. Why when hospitals are closing and laying off so many people. This Arbor Care, We Care, City shoving Letters anyone who doesn't want to work through a middle man SSI service— SSI is for people born with disabilities or vets. If you are hurt on the job SSD or develop physical impairments with aging, it is a different situation. Although different situations, they are being treated as one. You cannot imagine the physical run around they give you. Arbor Care, We Care, and they pay and HRA for all the thousands in car fare. These paper shuffle offices are in all 5 boroughs, SSD is based on your work history and contributions into SS and Medicaid, SSI is the free ride, but taxpayers, you are seriously paying for it. Why is that? Because we aren't told about these programs upon programs. Money goes round and where it stops nobody knows. I wish all would send letters and faxes to our representatives. WWW.NYC. GOV. Please leave letters, notes to cut these outrageous run around programs! Ten people to do the work of two. People just checking papers, upon papers, illegals all trying to get welfare, with no recompense of the Roosevelt law. That's exactly when they should be deported. Not on welfare and then pushing for SSI. These programs help do that by keeping SSD people in a system they don't deserve with a longer resolve, and keeps illegals in our country longer. So please Mayor Bloomberg, Governor Patterson. Who is really to blame and when are you getting rid of these programs.
