Lynne

Lynne is the 50-year old daughter of a friend of mine. Lynne has muscular dystrophy, which worsens over time. Lynne receives essential care through a program funded by Medicaid. I don't know what would happen to Lynne without this care.

We cannot abandon the disabled and the aging (myself included at age 78). I do not oppose paying more taxes to sustain programs so that even the vulnerable "may have life and have it abundantly."

We cannot allow profligate spending on wars and criminal lack of restraint (read lack of sensible lending regulations that brought on the housing crisis) to prevent our caring for our own vulnerable.
