• Matching empty homes with homeless families
    I live next door to a home that has been abandoned for several years. My church serves meals to homeless people who sleep in their cars or outdoors. There should be a program to cover utilities and food and help them take care of the house till they can get their feet under them again and the house can be sold.

  • Save In Home Support Services in California
    In Home Supportive Services for California Residents. All California Residents are affected by the mandatory 20% reduction in hours...both the providers, usually family or close relatives and the recipients who need the services that provide necessary help. This program is designed to help individuals with disabilities to stay in their home and out of skilled nursing facilities or assisted living homes by providing minimal payments which make it possible to save thousands of dollars per client...e.g. the maximum program hours are 230 /onth at $9.00/hr X 12 months = $24,220 (gross) vs. $7000/month X 12 months = $84,000. A savings of 59,780 per recipient. The vast majority of individuals only receive 80 hours per month.

  • Do not cut Medicare, Medicaid or Social Security
    We, the ordinary people of this country have paid in to these programs all our working lives. It is ridiculous to think the Republicans in Congress want to cut these programs without taxing the wealthiest Americans one penny more!

  • Do Not Approve NYU's Massive Proposed 20 Year Expansion Plan in the Village
    New York University wants to build an additional 2.5 million square feet of space – the equivalent of the Empire State Building! – in the blocks south of Washington Square Park. They need the City to overturn zoning protections, open space requirements, and urban renewal agreements, and give away public land used as parks, in order to do so. There are better alternatives for NYC, like the Financial District, which is accessible to other NYU hubs and where such growth would be contextual and welcome.

  • New Years Resolution to Defend Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid
    The Republicans’ relentless assault on the American Dream hasn’t stopped in 2011 - every day, Republicans try a new code word or political maneuver to destroy Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid - the programs that built the middle class in this country. Working families rely on these programs every day. We oppose any attempts to balance the budget on the backs of the 99% of us - seniors and working families who have been struggling in this recession.

  • Eldercare
    Many people are finding that they have to take care of an elderly parent or handicapped child and cannot work while doing this. They will lose jobs, homes, status and their ability to also take care of themselves. I have a masters degree, but my mom who is 90 years old has many problems and cannot take care of herself. I don't have any income. She only gets $374 in social security and that's not enough to maintain our home and I know several other people in the same position. Congress should address this by providing some type of assistance to those in theses types of situations.
