Texas Woman’s Viral Un-Thank You Note Blasts Obama, Calling Him, “A Very Selfish and Cold-Hearted Man”

Texas Woman’s Viral Un-Thank You Note Blasts Obama, Calling Him, “A Very Selfish and Cold-Hearted Man”

Meet Yolanda Vestal – average conservative American single mom…

Yolanda’s un-thank you note to Barack Hussein Obama has gone viral and made her an overnight champion of America’s middle class and working poor.

Ms. Vestal told Obama she believes his push for Obamacare and countless lavish taxpayer-funded vacations reveal just how distant he really is from the people he campaigned to help.

Here’s the letter millions of Americans are reading right now:

Dear President Obama,
I wanted to take a moment to say thank you for all you have done and are doing. You see, I am a single Mom located in the very small town of Palmer, Texas.

I live in a small rental house with my two children. I drive an older car that I pray daily runs just a little longer. I work at a mediocre job bringing home a much lower paycheck than you or your wife could even imagine living on. I have a lot of concerns about the new “Obamacare” along with the taxes being forced on us Americans and debts your are adding to our country. I have a few questions for you Mr. President.

Have you ever struggled to pay your bills? I have.

Have you ever sat and watched your children eat and you eat what was left on their plates when they were done, because there wasn’t enough for you to eat to? I have.

Have you ever had to rob Peter to pay Paul, and it still not be enough? I have.

Have you ever been so sick that you needed to see a doctor and get medicine, but had no health insurance because it was to expensive? I have.

Have you ever had to tell your children no, when they asked for something they needed? I have.

Have you ever patched holes in pants, glued shoes, replaced zippers, because it was cheaper than buying new? I have.

Have you ever had to put an item or two back at the grocery store, because you didn’t have enough money? I have.

Have you ever cried yourself to sleep, because you had no clue how you were going to make ends meet? I have.

My questions could go on and on. I don’t believe you have a clue what Americans are actually going through and honestly, I don’t believe you care. Not everyone lives extravagantly. While your family takes expensive trips that cost more than most of us make in two-four years, there are so many of us that suffer. Yet, you are doing all you can to add to the suffering. I think you are a very selfish and cold hearted man, who does not care what is best for the people he was elected by (not by me) to represent, but more so out for the glory of your name attached to history.

So thank you Mr. President, thank you for pushing those of us that are barely staying afloat completely under water and driving America into the ground. You have made your mark in history, as the absolute worst and most hated president of the United States. God have mercy on your soul!

Yolanda Vestal
Average American

    We the people of this great land need to rally together and help this poor lady and her family out. This government needs to be shown that the people of this country care more about the people that this government does.
    We need to post information on this brave American family so we can all help her.
    Together we can make a hugh difference in the lives of this familiy.
    It is our duty as Americans and as a member of our society as well as a member of the humanity we all share.

    • David William Reid

      Who can find out where she lives and help her out? I can send a few bucks to help if others can? Id you get an address, let me know please so I can send my part.

      • sandra

        If you Google her name you can find her Facebook page Yolanda Burroughs-Vestal

      • Jessica Mann

        I understand wanting to help her, but her neighbors are in the same boat she is in. its not just Yolanda its every American far and wide. People in little Laurel, DE are no better off than Yolanda in Palmer Texas. Shes not asking for a hand out shes stating facts.

        • Ron W Smith

          I agree Jessica. It breaks my heart to read stories like this. But under Obama this has become the norm, not the exception. In 5 years we have gone from upper middle class to poverty. My wife is ill, no insurance, I have just months to live and my Medicare Advantage gets destroyed by Obamacare in 2014. I would have loved to help out this dear woman and could have and would have 6 years ago. However, we have a so called President hell bent on destroying our country and our relationships with friendly countries. This is what he is good at–along with lying.

          • Eugene Pennington

            This was his plan EXACTLY!! Destroy the middle class!

          • DebbieEason

            I believe Obama will go down in history as one of the worst presidents.

        • DebbieEason

          I so agree with you Jessica. It’s not just Yolanda’s family that is being affected.

      • Diane Schwartz Sato Kodelja

        How many of us who are doing EXACTLY what she is are reading your post and want to find YOU to ring your doorbell and ask for “our” share of a hand out to the needy??? Are you kidding??? Nice thought, but think HARDER. Think BIGGER. Think “permanent solution” for EVERYBODY suffering, not “temporary solution” for Yolanda, our “Yertle the Turtle”.

        • Gail Miller

          I am in her shoes, I have kids to take care of and no help either. I also had cancer and now have Rhumatiod Arthritis, I cant find a job because the cancer destroyed my voice, but I keep going every day trying to make it work. Work was hard to find for me before when things were just plain hard, now its impossible.. Good luck to everyone out there trying to just survive day to day..

      • Daryl Tillery

        Palmer is small enough that you could send help to her “General Delivery” Palmer, Texas (find the zip). Who ever runs the post office knows where she is.

    • Nolan Fish

      We better hang on to what we have, because when he gets through, I don’t think we will be any better off then she is….

    • DebbieEason

      Unfortunately Obama Rule has not just hit this American family. A lot of people are suffering and it is getting worse.

  • Flipperj

    I would gladly help this lady

  • yahoo.com

    The president needs to live among the private sector for a couple of weeks …. so reality can slap him upside the head …..We dont live off the tax payers money like he does

    • Mary Fran

      it would take a lot LONGER than a couple of weeks.

    • DennisKing76082

      Here is an idea. I think it would be good for the President to have to do like the bosses on Undercover Boss. Require him to live among the American people for a couple of weeks (as you state) and to work, eat, sleep, pay bills, live on the average paycheck, enjoy using a vacation day from work to take care of a sick kid, and fight the battle of everyday life.

    What it is comming to Mexico because CIA has a complete building in Mexico at this ttime http://t.co/9BflFUERSe is happening in Mexico, many have died for sure. It is already implemented in Mexico, CIA handled to mafias to continue doing their criminal activities in Mexico. Obama wants to silence Mexican government, but mexican americans are not going to be silenced after killing thousands of mexican and mexican americans because he is a capo from Chicago mafias. Indans are killing americans as part of the CIA partnership. Go away from USA and Mexico killers India is not an allie according with NSA system, so why are they working as spies in government and Corporates? Are they just comming for our money and lives because of course they like to kill? http://aristeguinoticias.com/2410/mexico/video-ella-es-bianca-la-joven-que-rechazo-dar-discurso-a-modo-en-jalisco/

La CIA is starting to control everything in Mexico and USA to hide their killings in both countries. They are making a lot of money for their families only. Really a lot of money for theses lazies for their criminal acts..They are millioners for their crimes had done. It is Istlamo Nazi pólice already on place and ready, that it is the only job done by Obama, he does not care about americans

    NSA, CIA applying high tech against Mexican and USA citizens. Full implementation of the NSA system to have in place the Fake New Order in Mexico and USA. Several countries are behind China, India, Germany among others .The NSA system is a diabolic system created by lazies, science was not applied at all and it is done by high school workers without educative documents. It is a system that eats other systems like television, radio, internet, telephone among others. Attacks several targets at the same time using CIA techniques of dealing with different groups. This system protects operations of the agencies including in the system, it is not only USA, but also India that supplied more of the technical support. Indians is kind of race without ethic at all. Everything is in real time. Its weakness is the low level of technology used, because IT science was not applied, because they preferred domination of the technicians. Again the son that it is hated by illuminaties, indians, homosexual and CIA https://www.facebook.com/photo.php?v=474264039355030&set=vb.388313877950047&type=2&theater We have to be careful with the media, banks specially owned by Jewish and Islamo Nazis Be united to stop the illuminaties in Mexico http://lnkd.in/bxygsQp

  • Kathy LaPlant

    Yolanda’s words are very familiar. To add to her burden she must now be forced to buy insurance she could not previously afford, but that insurance does not put food on her table nor clothes on her children’s backs. She has lived for years under the threat of financial ruin just as the president described in his speaches, but having health care insurance is not going to take that threat away and being forced to purchase it is as she said, being held down under water and forced to drown sooner than she would have. Mr. President, those who support your law, I have heard time and time agin over the past 2 weeks are folks who don’t like their tax dollars paying for the poor or under insured who cannot afford their entire hospital bill or part of it. Those folks are selfish, in my opinion, and do not deserve to be called Americans. It is our responsibility to take care of our own. We cannot be a leader on the world stage if we cannot lead from within. Humanitarinas indeed! Get over yourself and repeal this disaster of a law.

    • NukeWaste

      If you want to help, then YOU help. For every one of these ‘true hard luck cases’ there are 100 more that are just fraud. I have been told personally that the roles are too large to check everybody. BS. When a school Vice-Principal has her kids on the free lunch program we are having serious entitlement problems.

      • Kathy LaPlant

        And we will have even more serious entitlement problems if this law is allowed to continue, driving folks like me, who is not on any entitlement program but poorer than s hit and looking for serious work. Jobs are being cut and employers going out of business because of this law. This is my experience in my own area, so no not talking about what I hear on tv.

  • Adalberto Cervantes Rodriguez

    Calderon and Fox used the international legal and illegal security network in USA and
    Mexico against me, after a comment on line in Excelsior and Universal about the
    issue of two plagiarisms of Fox in Mexico at Universidad Iberoamericana for hic
    Bachelor´s degree and also in his thesis presented at an American University
    for his PhD. It was long time ago but since then he has been using the
    international legal and illegal security network in USA and Mexico against me
    for almost three years, as a personal issue. Also I used to work in Hildebrando,
    Calderon´s family business and both of them decided to use this international
    legal and illegal security network in USA and Mexico against me because of my comments on line about the plagiarism of Fox using government documents as Theses. The Lazies are winning over the world. They only copy or stole the copyrights of others. The Lazies are using fake educational level. They do not have any degree. http://t.co/KhIGtxd6sQ

    • Jeff Brandes

      You poor Mexican, seeking a shoulder to cry on because they are wrongly mistreating you, get a job and a life, somewhere else. Your likely not an American National, so go away. STOP YOUR FKN CRYING and go back to Mexico if ya can’t handle the heat here. One of two things, stand up or shut up, when are you immigrants going to learn that your really not welcome here, fine to visit, but go home. And immigrants are ALL that come here for the freebies, not just Latinos, so don’t make it a racist thing. Make it a go home thing and don’t let the door hit ya in the ass when you leave

    Obama has taken vacations that cost more than 10 average Americans earn in their LIFETIMES!

    • Cindy J Sanford

      EVERY President does this. Obama has taken no more vacations than any other President. Please, people, we look stupid when we use this argument. Stop.

      • Bryan E. Priest

        Actually G.W.Bush vaxationed at his ranch…G.H.W. Bush vacationed at Kennebunkport, ME…his own property….the Obama’s have traveled the world at the taxpayers expense for their vacations!!

      • Ray Mizell

        It’s not looking stupid when you call out the muslim bastard for spending money this Country doesn’t have. Take time to see what he has done to destroy the economy. No jobs, more welfare, more food stamps, and regulations that keep the small business owners from hiring people, and doing everything he can to support terrorism. No hope for America as long as this son of a bitch is in office.

        • danapointdaddy

          calling him a muslim bastard definitely looks stupid tho, gotta say… and I don’t like the man one bit.

      • Jean Allen

        It really doesn’t matter what previous presidents have done. The current POTUS & FLOTUS have repeatedly said ‘we are going to have to sacrifice so that others can get what they need’ all the while acting as though this ‘sacrificing’ does not pertain to them. It might behoove them the next time they load up the mother-in-law, a handful of ‘cousins’, the girls and the family dogs to go jetting to Africa or some other exotic locale to remember that it’s taxpayer’s money they are travelling on….the same taxpayer that is expected to ‘sacrifice’ so others can receive. Get a freaking clue.

      • Steve Sellers

        Do not lump this into a “we” thing! You show your ignorance when you write things like that. It’s not the vacations, it’s the timing! Wrong time to be flaunting such things in the face of so many childrensuffering! “Osama” is not the anti-Christ, but I believe would like to be! Pure evil!

      • Patriot123579

        Yeah but Cindy, the difference is, Obama is supposed to be “The People’s President”. The President for the “99%”. The President for the poor, uninsured, poverty-stricken class.

        How can any such President in good conscience go on that many vacations?!?!

      • Gary Holveck

        Actually, Cindy, I was reinforcing the 11th paragraph of the “viral letter” which I’m sure the “smarter” people noticed. Perhaps you are also unaware that Obama’s single 2013 trip to Africa was expected to cost between 60 and $100 million dollars. No President has spent money like this guy … but perhaps those smarter people you refer to may know this. But, in retrospect, I guess you are right – I was wrong. I should have said “cost more than 60 Americans earning $50,000.00 for 20 years”. I was going to message you discreetly on Facebook but could not find a listing of Cindy J Sanford. You see, I think it is so sophomoric to call-out or name-drop on this medium, let alone outright accuse someone of blatant ignorance… so I won’t! By the way, my source is: http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2013/06/14/obama-africa-trip_n_3441510.html. …and your source is ??

      • Nolan Fish

        I sense a Bama lover, and I bet she is on welfare.

      • S. Mark

        It is you who look stupid Cindy. Maybe you should compare WHERE their vacations were taken.

      • Dave Hoing

        Stop drinking the Kool-Aid , Cindy. It is you that look stupid when you try to defend this president and his family’s extravagance. NO president in the history of the US has been so extravagant and exploited this nation and especially at a time when so many are suffering. This president and first lady spend money as if they were king and queen of the wealthiest nation that ever existed. GIVE ME A BREAK!!!

        Another vacation coming up this Christmas for the Obama’s will cost
        American taxpayers over $4 million dollars. So how much is it costing us
        to support the first family? The number is much worse than you could
        possibly imagine.

        “Every year (taxpayers in England) have to spend $57.8 million for
        the first family of Great Britain to make sure that everything’s
        maintained and everything is taken care of and their security and
        everything else, $57.8 million. And the people in England are upset
        about it,” Glenn explained this morning.

        “How much did we pay our royal family? How much did it take to
        maintain our royal family, the Obamas, just last year? Now, this is
        really interesting, especially as we come up for another vacation for
        the Obamas. This one is going to cost us $4 million. This vacation in
        Hawaii for Christmas is going to cost you $4 million. How much did we
        spend last year? Remember, the royal family cost $57.8 million. Would
        you be stunned if I told you it was $50 million? Would you be ‑‑ would
        you be bowled over if it was $100 million? How much do we spend? The
        total last year, a little higher than $57.8 million.”

        So what was it? $60 million? No. $100 million? Nope. $250 million? Not even close.

        The answer: $1.4 billion

        It’s so funny, every time people complain about Obama Rule, his puppets come out of the shadows and start trying to throw the attention elsewhere and blame everyone else.

        Yes Gary, other presidents have gone on vacation, but since we are talking about Obama and his expensive travels can we just stay on subject.

  • Joe Grose

    I guess the people of America are starting to see the tyranny of evil men especially in POTUS…. we tried to warn you all the first time about obama but then fucked up and voted him a second go around. Obamacare is garbage and a waste of money through tax payers. This is the same man who thinks our constitution is imperfect and goes on to bash it further in an interview. Point is POTUS needs to live in all walks of life and quit trying to drain one aka the military for his financial needs to pass stupid laws.

  • Joe Grose

    We need to come together as a country to help each other and put our differences aside. Put greed down for a while. The government shouldn’t be a source of lifetime welfare.

    I keep thinking I’m the only one who thinks Obama a liar and arrogant and incompetent. Turns out I’m wrong — not about Obama, but that I’m in the minority. Maybe I’m still in the minority and am among the very few who think members of Congress should thinks seriously about impeachment and turning Obama out of office.

    What everyone needs to do is not apply for obama care. take out insurance and send the bill to 1600 pensylvania ave. washington dc.
    and yes that poor lady is just not able to afford the insurance. and i would imagine her employer can not either. so that is two people that are going to be fined.
    and the pres is not taking the obamacare. wonder why?????

But hey, knocking my 200 pixel profile photo is way easier that using your noodle to actually partake in a dialog! I wish I’d known, I wouldn’t have even bothered. My turn.
          Hmm… A skull and crossbones. What are you? Rat poison?! Or maybe a pirate… Or maybe you ride a motorcycle, in which case, here, you may need this practice razor more than me.

          Wow! That was great! I win! Obama gets to be president for 7 more terms!

          • Jeff Brandes

            If you were just half as intelligent as a rat turd, you would recognize that skull and cross, but then again the dot on your head is not red dye. I don’t need 200 pixels to see your thinking is flawed, and winning is not an option to me but for someone as yourself it seems to be an insurmountable peak in your minds attempt to keep yourself safe in your own little world. Go climb your miniscule mountain and be the reign of it’s tiny realm, there’s a tricycle waiting for you on your return, your mom said you can ride it now.

        • Sarah N.

          Good grief! Please learn how to use correct grammar, punctuation, spelling– and less profanity. That way, you might be taken seriously instead of just looking uneducated… like a lot of Obama’s supporters.

        • Luke Ledger

          REALLY! FIX! What exactly has he fixed over the past 5 years??? Absolutely nothing, nothing at all. He’s made things worse, much worse! As I said, you are a selfish socialist whose only concern is for “ME, ME, ME”! Your continuance in blaming a previous administration is idiotic and irresponsible! It is solely based on your inability to learn! Go back to school and learn something this time. Your comments and use of foul language indicates your education level and intellectual ability. It’s a shame you have the ability to vote. It is because of naïve self centered idiots such as you that has this country screwed up! I don’t blame any president or any party at this point, I blame YOU!

    • Jeff Brandes

      Really Kayla, it shows that your an supporter of the current regime, your spelling is atrocious and evident literacy is just what can be expected for a pro-Obama supporter. Since you stand with him and his ideals, hopefully your willing to die with his ideals. A fraud, a fake, a deceiver, a liar, and above all else, not an American. No proven education, birth certificate, or legal citizenship, shown as a Black Panther supporter and a Marxist by default. Unlike you, I have done my research. Your intelligence is flawed, your thinking is sub-average at best and it is best that you quite thinking for yourself, after all, your an Obama supporter, let him think of and for you. (that makes me laugh, happily, at you)

    • Sarah N.

      what’s a demarcate?

  • kayla grimm

    FORGOT TO MENTION I myself struggle with bills food health insurance but it is no different from when any other president being in office.

  • momomo

    Yeah. This is well and good until poor Yolanda actually loses her job and one of her kids gets diabetes. What happens then? Anyone? A child with no insurance coverage with a chronic debilitating ailment?

    Yeah, Obama shouldn’t take any vacations. Hey America, our President has generously decided not to take a vacation with his family this year. You all get a $0.001 tax credit and he gets a new patch of grey hair…

    Why doesn’t Yolanda just drive her child to the Emergency room for treatment? That’s free right? That wouldn’t cost taxpayers anything over a long span of time or affect the price of medical treatment. (And by the by, insurance under obamacare wouldn’t cost Yolanda or anyone in her income bracket a dime. And the “We shouldn’t be forced to buy insurance” argument… Well like it or not, you’re gambling. Because emergency rooms must treat you. Here’s what happens: You get sick and could have purchased insurance but chose not to. Go to emergency room. Get billed $165,000 for a 6 night stay in a hospital. You can’t pay for it. Go bankrupt. You need more medical treatment because now you have a condition and you can’t get insurance. You can’t work. You’re on welfare and now. Everyone else is paying for everything you need to survive. Cost of medical treatment goes up because of your negligence. Multiply this by Millions and Millions of people doing this daily.)

    This letter asserts absolutely no argument against any particular policy. Just that Obama is out of touch because he took an expensive vacation.

    I knew we should have gone with that Romney fella. He would have taking his family to Ocean City, MD for vacation. He was in touch with the people.

  • VeeDub57

    What should be your first clue you are the worst president in history? How about when the last really worst president PUBLICLY hands you the crown!


  • Josephine Buchanan

    Yolanda That has to be one of the best letters yet. I can understand where you are coming from and have been where you are at many times. I have to totally agree with your assessment that he is the worst president ever and selfish to boot. I pray that your circumstances will improve and will keep your situation in prayers with others I know who are in much the same boat. God Bless you and your family.

  • Jeff Brandes

    Well to all that think your vote counted, think again. A choice of electoral votes sided by special interest groups and private promises behind close doors is how things are done. If you want to think it is a form of government, your sorely mistaken. It’s a business…President, Vice-President, Secretary, Treasurer. A poorly run business that operates, as all business does, in it’s own self interests. They are not there to help you in any form unless it helps them first, such as a re-election bid. I for one have seen what happens, burning over 500 million in U.S. treasury wrapped currency confiscated at many locations throughout Central America in Reagans “War on Drugs” campaign. It’s all about perception, and the pea under the cup syndrome, with one fatal flaw, there was never a pea in the first place. So no matter what you think you see, it’s actually what you don’t see. A game of smoke and mirrors based on deception, re-direction and false promises. Hey, you voted, deal with it or stand against, make a choice, just don’t sit there on the fence waiting for the grass to turn green. For that lady being hungry…do as I have done, grow your own food, eat a squirrel or one of the many feral hogs located in Texas, they are a little gamey, but it’s food. My motto, survive or die, but more over, stop your damn wining and do something about your situation.

  • corrrine

    Yolanda, PODUS, The impostor KNOWS what many Americans like You are suffering, And not only does he know it, he delights in the very fact that it is happening because his goal is to bring down America. The people he bribes with Obama-phones, and other trinkets do not want to see it.



  • erodam

    Yolanda, we all need to do our part to support our president. After all he is the first black communist president we’ve ever had. Although most of us are suffering, it’s the least we do to make sure he and his family can enjoy the good life, because after all, they have suffered so much while campaigning going city to city, staying in hotels, having to eat prepared foods etc. Do what I do to ease the pain, hang a picture of him near your bed, or floor, and just stair at it in admiration of someone so much better than you or I. On a serious note, I truly pray for blessings to come your way, and that your children have liberty and freedoms when they grow up.

  • Gene Nash

    May I add Mr. President, that I hope you & your family ROT IN HELL. !!!!!

  • squirehobbs

    Regretfully impeachment will never happen, they will not do it as there would be nothing but riots afterward before they could ever put them out on the street; riots the likes we’ve never seen before, you all know that, so it will never happen…I thought I’d never say this about a POTUS but this guy is complete trash, I so loathe and dispise him, what blows my mind is simply the cost of the Secret Service just to protect him, not duty I’d want…I wish his end was parallel to Ambassador Stevens, he and that crazy Hillary, what goes around comes around…oh please Karma, do your thing.

  • Michael Bulger

    Yolanda is right about everything. for a very short time after his first election, I was kind of proud that our country could transend and elect a black man president. After i woke up the next morning, I was praying that it wasn’t a mistake and he could actually do some of the things he wanted for us. Then reality crept in and raised it’s ugly little head. I didn’t vote for him either time, even though I was underwhelmed by the republican offerings. I’m sure that at least a third of the voters voted for him for the simple reason that he was black. I’m hoping we won’t have a repeat of that, because she is a woman. That would be tragic, and spell doom for any hopes that the middle class may still have.

  • sonia

    I being a single mom work hard to try and make sure my child has what he needs, but even with all the hard work I can hardly afford food after I pay all of my bills. I understand where this mom is coming from. I never thought I would have to sign up for food stamps but I had to just to try and get enough food for my little one. And now they pass a law that is cutting food stamps. I hardly got any as is. It’s upsetting to think that I might end up working more jobs just to make sure my child has food in his belly. I hardly get to see my little one as is because of work. And if I pick up another job I will lose food stamps all together. The problem is that hard working families and people don’t make enough to live on. So programs were put in place to try and help, but people have found away to abuse that system. So now they are starting to take away those programs or cutting back on them, because of that. An it’s punishing people who followed the rules. This man has lied and not done what he promised the people. And even if he gets impeached he will still continue to live off of tax payers for having been president. His family will never know true hardship or the feel of going without, and being hungry. He will never have to hear his kids ask for more food or watch them be sick and know there is nothing that he can do to make it better. It sickens me to know that he is getting away with a lot of things that others before him wouldn’t have been allowed to do. Bush was not the best president so before someone yells about that he too wasn’t a very good one. We haven’t had a good honest man as leader of this country in many years. The rich just keep voting in their puppet heads to play and see what all they can do and how far they can go. We as the people have forgotten that it’s our voice and power that control things. If we don’t want these people in office we do have the right and power to vote them out. We don’t have to deal with this and the things that our government is doing. But sadly we the people have lost our voice and have our hands bound all because of fear. We are afraid to truly speak out and fight for what we believe is fair and right. If everyone stood up and said enough is enough and started to remove the government heads that are corrupted we could make this government better. But I don’t think I will get to see this in my life time. We have become uses to things and we complain but no one is standing up because we are scared. The rich will continue to get rich and make new laws so that they don’t have to worry about losing money. The poor will continue to be poor and carry this government on our backs. With out the hard working class the rich would have to start doing things on their own. Most people with money have forgotten that without someone else hard work they wouldn’t have that money. I would love to see the money hungry, war causing people work off of the min wage and suffer like everyone else is doing.

  • Chuck Purcell

    I pray that both Mr. and Mrs. Obama read this and their children. I hope their children get to understand what their father has done to the American people and to them also. I hope kids at school can see them and ask one of them what they think about people talking about their parents. I also hope that they are able to look at each other at night and remember the people they are affecting, each one of us. I can only pray that God will one day take his vengeance out on the entire Obama Family. They will one day pay the price that is far greater than anything I could ever do to them.

    seriously people… when will you realize that it’s not Obama or Bush or Nixon, it’s every damn president of the US. None of the members of our government have any connection to how the average American lives. Running for president alone requires millions of dollars, and by the time anyone has that kind of money they’ve completely lost touch with reality.

    • johnrhett

      Still, some are worse than others, and this one is the worst of the worst.

    • Dave Hoing

      But you should acknowledge the irony of Obama’s running on a platform of being for “the average American” then flying his family around the world in style more extravagant than any episode I ever saw of “Lifestyles of The Rich and Famous”. He should be ashamed and embarrassed, but instead comes off with an attitude of entitlement and arrogance. No wonder why so many are disgusted with this exploitation of a position of honor.

    Great letter but here is the problem….he doesn’t give a shit!!!!! As long as he/they retain the money and power he/they don’t care about your problems and he/they doesn’t care if your problems get worse or continue. If he did then we would not still be on this path to complete destruction. This I am affraid was his goal all along and worse yet.

    Thank You Yolanda for saying what everyone knows and telling it like it is. God Bless You and God Bless America.

    Obummer could have been great, one of the greatest presidents in history. The kind of leader that comes around only once in a long while. He could have been the 1st for real change.. Yes we Can ! We bought the whole thing; line, hook, and sinker. His masters have chosen the perfect minion to serve them never us. Dont blame Obummer, he’s just a peg in the wheel.

    Yoldana, have you considered taking responsibility for your life and stop waiting on the government to fix it for you? You work a mediocre job? Go get another one. If you lack the education to get a better job, go back to school. That will solve a lot of your problems.

    Why are you having children if you can’t support them and yourself?

    How much government assistance are you on? As a taxpayer, you should include that.

    You want lavish vacations? Work. Work. Work. Like all of us who take lavish vacations do.

    Let’s try some personal responsibility and stop blaming others for your mistakes and situation. Look in the mirror if you want someone to blame.

    Dear Ms. Yolanda Burroughs-Vestal,

    As a single mom , I appreciate your letter. I can relate to alot of what you’ve stated but now you’re on a platform and have the ears of people. You said you were offered help, but what are you going to do now?

    Have you considered of starting a 501c3 organization where the people you stated you’ve refused help from ( focus those funds into an organization to help others) and place those funds, with a board of directors and funnel those funds into a program that helps single moms acheive higher education, job placement , etc. Someone wants to give you money? Have them buy some land. A developer wants to help you, have them build houses in a subdivision, that qualified persons and their families can live rent free, with a small stipend while they pursue a better life for their families. Set up a job placement agency that will hire them after they complete their educational goals and an internship.

    You’re voice is being heard and it’s being attached to alot of people. Please represent us well and I hope that other single mother’s are benefited from your letter. I know that is not what you original wrote it for , but your vent may be an open door not only for you but for other’s. This can spawn a huge pay it forward across the nation.

    I mean you started something great. Now let’s see something come out of it that not only benefits you , but others that are in this situation. Like I said , you have a voice and a platform. What are you going to do with it?

    Your single mom sister,
    Melonie Ronita Gerald

    Yolanda is misplacing her blame. Instead of blaming the president, she should be blaming the state government of Texas. Originally the ACA called for a nationwide expansion of Medicaid, intended to provide FREE health insurance for citizens making less 400% of the federal poverty level. The way this expansion would work was that each state would expand its own Medicaid program to cover all its citizens making below 400% of the federal poverty level, and the Federal Government would pick up the full cost (initially). However, when the ACA went to the Supreme Court, the Court ruled that the Medicaid Expansion portion of the ACA was too coercive, and thus the Court ruled that the expansion be OPTIONAL for each state to decide on its own. Texas refused to expand its Medicaid program.
    Yolanda says that she is a single mother of two struggling to get by, and she’s angry about the extra financial burden that purchasing health insurance is going to have on her and her children. According the Department of Health and Human Services, if Yolanda makes less than 19,530 dollars in 2013, she’ll be at 100% of the Federal Poverty Level. According the Medicaid Expansion, if Yolanda makes less than 78,120 dollars, then she would be eligible for free health insurance through Medicaid, because 78,120 dollars is 400% of the Federal Poverty Level for a family of 3. If the state government of Texas had agreed to expand its Medicaid program, Yolanda would have been able to enroll in Medicaid granted that she have a yearly gross income of less than 78,120 dollars.
    As stated earlier, Yolanda should be placing her blame on the state government of Texas for not being willing to expand its Medicaid program. As a result of Texas’ decision, Yolanda will either have to purchase health insurance (which in her situation is heavily subsidized through the state exchanges), or face a penalty upon filing her tax return.

    She like many other Americans are so close to living on the street it is not even funny. I can not even phathom if she herself got sick…. no work, no pay check, no rent…. I fear for her and all of us. But you know what, I AM proud that Americans will ban together to help those less fortunate. It fills my heart to know that there are good people wanting to help and willing to help. I wish there was more we could do. We are so jacked up as a country that it does enraged a person to write a letter. How can the president to this day sit back and act like he has absolutely no interest in America or the American people. How many schools could have been helped with the amount of money they spend? How many shelters could benefit on what they spend on vacations. I notice he will jump to respond on a racist issue in the NBA (which I feel he had no reason to remark, They got it let them handle it.) Worry about the country and Do your job Mr.President. Children are going hungry while you party it up. Shame on you.
