going out for our attorney and that is updates once in a while.
Perhaps we should take a vote on whether to drop it since it has gone on for

I am thankful for our discussion on the budget transfer and cutting proposal
for State Medical/Medicaid.
I’ve been a little quieter on writing these past couple days, partially
because of attending to needs back here in Kansas City and discussing
blindness issues on other lists.
Yet, as much as we wish to maintain our fervor in opposing the proposed
budget transfer from Medicaid/State Medical, we need to proceed but with
It’s better to work with the details and evidence we have. I understand we
want to find the diamond in the rough or the treasure under a rock. But, we
do not help ourselves by suspecting certain issues. I wil research to see if
there is any evidence or correlation between the Bild Pension Lawsuit and
the proposed budget transfer. Right now, there is no evidence. It does not
help our case to wonder if suax grinding is in the works.
We simply have Rep. Silvey’s explanation, which does cause us much concern.
It is better that we work with the explanation given and any research that
can uncover facts. Remember Ann Coulter words from her book DEMONIC, about
mobs. Mobs often overstate cases, even if they may have some kernel of truth
I’m not saying we’re a mob. I’m saying that we do well to proceed and speak
from the presentation of evidence, not circumstance.
It’s easy to put ourselves opposite an idea that we construct. That makes
negotiations more difficult. It makes working with the given facts in a case
I encourage all of us to reread Chris Gray’s letter to the Senators on the
Portman Amendment. WE need to have that forthrightness combined with clarity
and demonstrated accuracy when confronting the Medicaid/State Medical at
hand. I’m looking forward to the rally tomorrow. I’m hoping we can make more
progress and that ABC wil, indeed, be there to catch the whole thing on
