Before congress cuts any so-called entitlements--Social Security, Medicare, Unemployment, Medicaid and Welfare--cut the billions in subsidies to oil companies, agribusiness, multinationals and other huge corporations that do not need to get rich from our tax dollars.

      Congress should not be controlled by those with the most money! Support those in need as we once

      did.

      I live on SSDI and receive 866.40 a month. I have been told I am not even eligible for for the Cal-Fresh program because I"I already get money for food. Now they are saying they want to use the chained CPI method for cost of living increases "because we can buy lower priced goods." I challenge anyone who thinks that way to prove it by living on what I do for a year paying all their bills. That would be an excellent way of ridding ourselves of congressional parasites like John Bohner and Paul Ryan because they would starve to death in a month.

      I CAN'T BELIEVE HOW GREEDY THE 1% IS! JUST GIVE UP SOME OF YOUR BENEFITS AND INCOME AND SEE HOW YOU LIKE IT! EVERYBODY ELSE IN THE REMAINING 90% HAS HAD TOO SUFFER SO YOU SHOULD TOO!

      This could help the poor and keep more and more people from going poor. The recession we're facing now could go worse than the great depression or be just as bad.

      This is to help with the economic downturn. I have a petition below that’s for the economy and ridiculous gas prices and other things affecting us. Let’s sign mine. I need 1,000 signatures in total.

      We should also take a stand against greed. I blamed it all on high gas prices for driving schools on waiting lists. It's common sense for first time learners for driving to have behind the wheel for car insurance reduction and most important safety of learning.

      We are taking stands against greed as well. You people who signed this petition should sign mine if you haven't. The author of this petition should sign mine on the link as well if haven’t.

      There’s also a petition on sign on. Here’s that link below as it’s for the reshaping the world to improve our lives.
