The Brain Injury Association of America enriches us with activity in government updates. Of particular interest is the deconstruction of our nation’s health care. The Affordable Care Act is being dismantled in favor of a yet unknown substitute.
Recently President Trump called for an investigation of alleged Obama wire taps accusing President Obama of listening in on his private conversations. This is a distraction from the ongoing and getting worse Russia situation. It will be interesting if the alleged Russian contact ever testifies about the conversations he had with the, now, Attorney General, Jeff Sessions, who recused himself from the scandal for unknown reasons. Usually a Judge will recuse himself for conflicts such as, having an interest in a business of one of the litigants, or other relationship with one of the parties. This seems to be, perhaps, the Attorney General having participated in the disputed facts.
A few days ago, the Senate confirmed Dr. Ben Carson to head the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development (HUD), and former Texas governor Rick Perry as the secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy.
Please read through to my conclusion at the end. Please post any comments as we are interested in your opinion. We are now in March 2017. Here are things you should know about that will affect us all.
There appear to be major and minor rifts happening which will be felt soon. The health care we receive will be changing again. Our fund appropriated Brain Injury Programs and those of affiliated partners will suffer. The quality of care to those who are receiving and those who would have benefited from such care will reduce.
What happens next will be known when it happens as, so far, this administration has been predictably unpredictable.
We are all interested in current events whether we realize it or not. From keeping abreast via the internet or social media, watching the 30 minute news segment or other news channels, to old fashioned reading of newspapers: we all absorb our environment and, hopefully, seek successful social networks. Therefore what happens in our town, state, nation, world and universe, is of interest. PLEASE take a few moments to share your reaction to this post, either my commentary or the substantive portion from the BIAA, or both. Thank you.
