What would YOU ask the White House?

  1. I was disappointed that the President didn’t give time during his speech to talk about our citizens with disabilities… A great opportunity to speak about the advancement in immediate care for those with brain injuries…. with representative Giffords in the front row. We as a nation have come a long way since the days of Brady in 1981, 30 years. The need for more funding for those whether they be high profile cases or low profile cases. The need for more funding for years of care… such as the bill HR868 which died on the last day of 2010, a bipartisan resolution to provide enhancement of wages who are Direct Care professionals… the resolution always died on the last day of the past 3-4 sessions… Also it is time for the states to comply with the Olmstead decision of 1999 by the US Supreme Court… time to get people off waiting lists, for services…
