"Social Security essential"
On Jan. 31, 1975, it was raining, I was driving and I passed a truck. We hit another car, head-on. When I emerged from the coma, I had to relearn how to walk, talk, read and write. I spent almost one year in therapy, learning to cope with only my left side working.
Now, after three surgeries and kidney and heart problems because of diabetes, I am very disabled and have not worked in seven years. Social Security is all that I have, and to think a foreign-born ex-bodybuilder is going to cut tools for the disabled and cut their income to yield to the rich — shame on him!
