Strike Nine. No lawyer will take Mom’s case because of Texas tort law. Help.

Share

Over the past few months, I’ve kept you apprised of the situation regarding my mother, first ending up in a Houston hospital after receiving chemo over my objections, reporting on how Obamacare has already helped her, and my update this past week on how the Shutdown created still more problems for her.

What the Debt Ceiling Fight is REALLY About: Impeachment

Share

By the time you read this, you’ll already know whether or not the GOP has once again Shutdown the Federal Government for the first time since they last did it 17 years ago.
