We cannot teach dead children.

Education issues are healthcare issues.

Children with birth defects, children requiring special education, and other children with special needs are now being denied their basic needs because they don’t “deserve” them and are a financial and academic drain. Fully qualified teachers have been scapegoated as being greedy, antiquated, immoral, and responsible for bankrupting school districts and states. An infant with a hole in her heart is not cost effective for a “new and improved” healthcare program. Expensive, state-mandated, high stakes testing provided by private for-profit corporations who insist on same-testing severely disabled and dying children are supported by various state laws. Now, we face a so-called healthcare bill that will cause children to die before they become eligible for public education by dedicated and accredited teachers.
No, these are not exaggerations; these are examples of the so-called “new normal” in Washington D.C. under President Donald Trump and the Republican majorities in the Senate and the House of Representatives.
One wealthy old man, Senator John McCain, is hospitalized; he has superb, full healthcare coverage which is paid for by our federal government. Our U.S. Senate postponed the vote that will deny healthcare to a child with a hole in her heart because McCain is in the hospital and cannot vote. McCain, the son of an American admiral, has received government healthcare coverage his entire life. He went to Annapolis as the son of an admiral via a legacy preference, was an officer in the navy, a prisoner-of-war and then became a senator for decades. Even though he has been married to a very wealthy woman for many years, he has always had full healthcare coverage paid for by the government. Of We cannot teach dead children. | Reclaim Reform:
