"They also want to block grant Medicaid and cut it by a third over the coming 10 years. Of course, that’s going to really hurt a lot of poor kids.
But that’s not all. A lot of folks don’t know it, but nearly two-thirds of Medicaid is spent on nursing home care for Medicare seniors who are eligible for Medicaid.
It’s going to end Medicare as we know it. And a lot of that money is also spent to help people with disabilities, including...
... a lot of middle-class families whose kids have Down’s syndrome or autism or other severe conditions.
And, honestly, just think about it. If that happens, I don’t know what those families are going to do. So I know what I’m going to do: I’m going to do everything I can to see that it doesn’t happen. We can’t let it happen. We can’t."
-Bill Clinton on Wednesday night, in reference to the Republican Party
I have always been a Democrat and an Obama supporter, but now that Kaden is going through this, I am even more. Please, please, PLEASE- for all of the families affected by disabilities, vote for Obama this November. This is not to mention the position the Republicans will put our senior citizens in.
It is my wish for other autism parents to fully understand the effect Romney will have on our lives if he is elected.
