they don't like the big number but don't actually say what they want to cut and by how much shows you how skin deep their very serious objections are

 

 

Plus what in the ever-loving fuck does domestic infrastructure/etc have to do with Afghanistan?

If anything, I'd think that no longer throwing cash down that money pit would make infrastructure spending more palatable.

Heidi Heitkamp, former Democratic senator now part of a lobbying push to scale back the party’s tax agenda, says rural swing voters are upset about Biden’s plan to change the structure of taxation on inherited assets above $1 million.

At least 21 percent of nursing home residents are on antipsychotic drugs, a Times investigation found.

 

If only a bill existed to get people out of nursing homes...

I hated it when my dad was put in a nursing home. Hopefully that bill gets passed to at least help some people. They need to help improve nursing homes and hold them accountable.

The senior care should of been an easy win after the shit they saw happen with COVID. As someone said, America was a cool concept/experiment. Now it’s time to throw it away, start from scratch and hope for a better outcome 

 

There was a reddit thread the other day about a family conflict over institutionalizing a disabled 15 year old.

Also the notion that nursing home staff are "professionals". It was really eye opening for me to see the ignorance and down right ableism on full display. But as @Iculussaid, this is America,
