|legalize marijuana. Come on folks, especially medical MJ so people like me can get some pain relief! I have even tried narcotics, they don't work. MJ is supposed to work for the disease I have.... but I can't try MJ because to go to a pain management doc - who treats my disease, I have to agree to random drug tests. I know people who have moved from the US to Canada who have the same disease I have just to have medical MJ.
Take away the right or what ever it is that says that churches don't have to pay taxes on property, income etc!
Revamp the entire social security disability system. I am living this nightmare now. There is something wrong with a system that pretty much requires a seriously ill person to use up every penny, lose their home, health insurance, etc. and pay a lawyer tons of money, and wait years to get help. Yet, other people manage to get it for what seems like no good reason. In Ohio, nearly 80% are denied the first time you apply. It can take 8 or 9 months to get that first decision, and you can't make any money during that time. Then, you appeal.... and then, about 80% of the people GET it on appeal..... but that appeal can take 2-4 years. I am not saying it should be easy. Not at all. But isn't there something wrong if 80% are denied, then appeal and then 80% are approved? Huh? My rehabilitation therapy doc said that she has people that have been in a car accident, been paralyzed from the neck down, with a head injury, cannot talk, cannot feed themselves, and they are denied and told they can work. How can this be?
Allow people who take in an elderly parent, or a disabled sibling, to add them to their their health insurance, as if they were a child. I mean as a second insurance for the elderly person to medicare.
