"a move that hurts seniors and disabled Americans"

I agree there are security issues. But a particular forum i read has users who often comment about visiting myssa to see if there has been an status update. I suspect millions of disabled people will welcome an enhanced myssa account.

Of course office closings impact the local residents. We would all like a personal claims rep we can call on any time who will stop what they are doing and work for us. And visit us at home as well.
