"In-home services" are much cheaper than residential nursing homes. But the federal law requires nursing home payments. So in the name of "cost savings," the elderly get much more expensive care — or die waiting for service.

To an Alinskyite, “the end justifies almost any means” and an additional 12 million votes could usher in permanent Democrat majorities in both houses of Congress. What happens thereafter to the nation’s social fabric and our treasury is merely collateral damage.
2010's answer to the Pentagon Papers or another Al Capone's vault? If the Rashid Khalidi videotape exonerates Obama, the Times should be anxious to publish it. If it doesn’t, they've done a public service. Here's how we can give them a nudge.

Doory suspended the balance of Ramkissoon’s 20-year sentence and ordered her to report to a residential treatment facility for young women.

Sorry, but having to “live with knowing she was partly responsible” for this boy’s death is not the same as paying for it. A residential program for something this cruel? In terms of justice for this boy, it seems a bit cruel itself. (Thanks to Trey for emailing this story.)
