    This is a shame that you would not give people on soc sec a 4 th stimulus check!!! This makes the 5 year in a row that my soc sec has been cut to pay extra for Medicare, my second insurance, and my deductibles for medications and insurance. I am 70 years old , bad health. I asked Medicaid for help and was told I made $10.00 to much to qualify for help. But yet I keep making less and less. I , along with millions of others signed a letter asking for one more stimulus check to get our feet back under us for this winter. Where I live, we do NOT have a g go pod bank. One church is open on Sunday afternoon for 2 hours and you can only come there 3 times a YEAR!!!! I worked over 35 years and deserve better from my government! I pay the same as you for milk, bread, gas etc. I just pay more for medications as I am old and sick!!! I live 95 miles from my hospital and doctors and stores that is one way only. Do you people think about us that have the same bills you do but have to pay a lot more??? Or would you prefer we just die do you won’t have to think and think about us. I have never asked for help before. But this time I am begging you to help us. Check out our zip code and see how far we have to travel to a real hospital not a med center. Is this the way you want your mother, sister, daughters treated? Then give us one more check to cover the bills we are being given to take care of Texas last winter. They raise our electric and gas by $12.00 each for there stupidness. I can not pay mine but now I have to pay theirs. Wake up and see what they are doing to us old people.
