This legislation gave my son his life back, and helped my family kick the living shit out of a condition that destroys everything from children, to finances, to marriages. It even protected my neighbors property values -- We were prepared at one point to sell our home and move somewhere cheaper in order to afford his treatment. We would have had to sell our home at a huge loss, go into debt, and bring down our neighbor's property values as a result. Even marriages. The data shows that the failure rate of marriages involving the diagnosis of autism in a child is about 80%... That, and costs involved in treatment can easily exceed $1M over a lifetime. Money that YOU and everyone else reading this would have to shoulder if we couldn't cover it ourselves.
So. Care to guess how i'm voting in '12?
