1. It's horrible
My sister is an administrator of services for the developmentally disabled there and she's devastated by the cuts - over a billion dollars! There's virtually nothing left. She has worked so hard to implement wonderful programs that help the developmentally disabled start their own businesses and lead fulfilling lives and that provides health and nursing services to the most severely disabled clients... and now it's all going to be wiped out overnight. She told me that she doesn't want to face her clients and tell them that the services they've been counting on for years will no longer be offered. "I feel like I am betraying them." :(

This country sickens me. Who was it who said that you can judge a country by the way it treats its most vulnerable members? We fail miserably.
