Help Me How?

A mother of twin boys with special needs writes in a letter to the Kansas City Star that she doubts Gov. Palin or Sen. McCain will do anything to improve her life.

"How is she going to be an advocate? Just because you have a child with special needs doesn’t mean you’re an advocate. I haven’t heard anything from the GOP about how they are going to make private insurance pay for therapies. It’s all about money, folks. The last thing an insurance company wants to do is pay for a therapy for a special-needs child. My husband and I have had to fight for every type of therapy. Our insurance hasn’t paid a dime, and they never will until it is a law."
