On Advocates for those with developmental disabilities urge attendance at upcoming hearings

"Republican allies of Brownback's went even further, pushing through a budget provision that said if long-term care for those with developmental disabilities was kept out of KanCare, then they won't get funding to reduce a waiting list for services."

Knuckle under, or we'll punish the disabled. How can anyone NOT be ashamed of this legislature?

Hey, they are under a lot of pressure. They took a lot of money from these private companies who want all the government money to get rich, so they have to deliver. I mean, if they don't follow through, then they won't get a cushy job with these companies when they are no longer in the legislature. I'm sure there is a human buried in these legislators somewhere, but since they worship money, they are required to hide that side of them. Greed is the new religion. All hail money.

I can't believe the people in Topeka who just don't care about Kansans anymore. Don't they have trouble sleeping at night?

I suspect Dave Trabert won't dare raise his head in this thread.

Libertarianism and economic conservatism fail when it comes to disabilities, autism, and related problems.

Just remember: the legislature THREATENED the disabled. They attacked the weakest members of society.

Actually, libertarians, conservatives, liberals, socialists, communists, etc. all fail at one time or another. That's why anyone with a rigid political philosophy will look foolish from time to time.
