I

avoid Walmart. The owners could easily raise their rate of pay and not raise prices a penny. It's the same with most major corporations. I choose to not contribute to their riches

Exactly!

Insurance companies allow providers to charge certain maximum amounts, which of course they do. They have agreements to pay a certain percentage of that then the patient pays the balance. It's a racket.

More

people are losing their healthcare than those who are signing up. What makes them more eligible? The ones losing their policies are now having to pay the subsidies while forgoing what they already had

Three

of my kids, now adults, had severe ADHD. None of them are disabled, they were VERY active. They focus on books which interested them, not necessarily on what was being taught. Teachers want calm kids, understandably. My kids had strict diets which helped enormously. At school they had to sit in a certain section of the classroom or in the hallway if they were disruptive. Never suspended. I don't ever remember anyone when I was growing up who was considered disabled for having ADHD, those kids were called ornery and had to sit in a certain section of the classroom or in the hallway. We don't want drugged up drones for kids. We want kids to grow up knowing there are certain things expected from them and when their behavior is unacceptable.

The headline

says disability, the article repeated says behavioral. Behavioral could be a symptom of too much or too little discipline. Also says some students have been suspended for rolling their eyes at a teacher? That is ridiculous. I have probably rolled my eyes at parent-teacher conferences. Some teachers don't belong in a classroom full of students.

He is a career politician

and he is historically part of the problem we have here in Maine. Time for him to go! He never had my vote anyway.
