In other words, I'm against government aid unless I'm getting it. A trait you share with many so-called Conservatives, tea partiers, and Republicans.
This is actually a hard bill for me. I consider myself to be very conservative, however, there are people out there - like me personally - who cannot afford the hearing aids that they need to go about living their daily lives. I can't hear very much at all without mine, but with it I can hear within normal hearing range. There is some assistance out there to enable people with disabilities so that they can work, but what happens when they choose not to work because they want to stay at home with their kids or if they are too old to continue working? I wonder if insurance should be required to cover hearing aids for certain levels of hearing loss? Would that be better? I don't have all the answers, but at least this bill is attempting to solve the issues out there for people like me.
The state of Michigan does not have money to pay for everything now. QUIT TRYING TO GIVE AWAY MORE MONEY!~!~!
