    School Leaders Fret Over Possible Medicaid Changes

    by Michelle Diament | February 28, 2017

    As federal lawmakers consider broad changes to Medicaid, school chiefs from across the country are warning that such modifications could have big consequences for students with disabilities.

    School districts rely on Medicaid to help pay for everything from nurses and therapists to screening and treatment for students in special education.

    This could change if Republicans have their way with the state-federal program.

    1. Disturbing.

    "The NSA’s capability at any time could be turned around on the American people, and no American would have any privacy left, such is the capability to monitor everything. There would be no place to hide."  Frank Church "When plunder becomes a way of life for a group of men in society, over the course of time they create for themselves a legal system that authorizes it and a moral code that glorifies it." - Frederic Bastiat, 1848

    2. We are in for some deeply troubling times

    Thank you for bringing this to my attention, I had not been aware of this aspect of expected incoming damage until you brought me this information.

    “We must dissent from the indifference. We must dissent from the apathy. We must dissent from the fear, the hatred and the mistrust. We must dissent from a nation that has buried its head in the sand, waiting in vain for the needs of its poor, its elderly, and its sick to disappear and just blow away. We must dissent from a government that has left its young without jobs, education or hope. We must dissent from the poverty of vision and the absence of moral leadership. We must dissent because America can do better, because America has no choice but to do better.” Thurgood Marshall
