butterfield

my wife called and had to leave a message in hopes of receiving a call . we both where in a life changing accident and have applied for disability . which we have been denied twice . she called mr butterfields office six weeks ago . he will not return a call or anything . we are not black , Hispanic , or indian . I feel sure thats why mr butterfield will not return her call. even though we are white . we are still tax paying americans . and he is suppose to represent us despite the color of our skin . if he would just acknowledge that we exist . I didn't think to much of him before this . I think even less now . I can a sure you that he will not receive any support from either of us in the future . we need help
