please start to think about it

Much like the Medicaid story out of Tennessee I highlighted several post ago this story is worth following. What is involved here is an existing financial safety net for people unable to continue working because of a disability. This safety net not only affects the people in need but those around them.

Millions Wonder About Potential Impact of Bush Privatization Plan


YES, unquestionably our system is broken. Doing nothing is not an option … not any longer.


I would encourage everyone to begin to educate themselves and express your opinion to State and Federal representatives. A knee jerk decision to jump on one side or the other is tempting but not necessarily the best solution. Safety nets are not always for someone else, they could be your life line one day.


Please start to learn about it and think about it.

  1. Thanks for the Hershey Med. Center info....we went up for a visit with Patti and tried to get some info from her on her visit to Dr. Tenser BUT she could not remember anything about her check-up. She thought she was weighed but did not have a clue on how much she weighed. We played a game of Trivial Pursuit and she seemed very alert.
