Waffle has articulated the human cost of these changes very well. As a caregiver, I see firsthand the devastating effects this administration has already wrought upon individuals with disabilities, as well as their families.

Whole families – families that are already dealing with significant daily stressors – have had to reorganize around trying to understand and then respond to the new legislation. While in the capital these measures may seem abstract, merely a little cost-cutting here and there, up close it is painful, like the “tornado” of which waffle wrote. Adding insult to injury is the cavalier manner in which this is being done, which is shockingly akin to the way people with disabilities have historically been treated.

Kudos to all of you who are fighting the good fight. We shall overcome!
