    in Military

    Proposed Cuts to the VA 2015


    Restrict VA's Individual Unemployability Benefits to Disabled Veterans Who Are Younger Than the Full Retirement Age for Social Security


    More than 3.4 million veterans with medical conditions or injuries that were incurred or worsened during active-duty service are receiving disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA).


    Narrow Eligibility for Veterans' Disability Compensation by Excluding Certain Disabilities Unrelated to Military Duties


    Veterans may receive disability compensation from the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA) for medical conditions or injuries that occurred or worsened during active-duty military service (excluding those resulting from willful misconduct). Disabilities that are deemed to be connected to military service in that sense range widely in severity and type, from the loss of limbs to migraines and treatable hypertension.

    Health Insurance for Developmental Disabilities: Proposed changes

    in Parents

    The ability for families to get services for children with developmental disabilities may increase if a new rule proposed under the Affordable Care Act becomes final.


    In this "Kids News Extra" segment Dr. T reviews the article, "Proposed Rule Mandates Coverage of Habilitation" from the ASHA Leader about proposed mandate to cover habilitative services.


    "Habilitation" is intervention to help a child build skills in which they are delayed or disordered. It's similar to the more familiar term of  "rehabilitation" whereby an individual receives intervention to regain skills that are lost second to an accident, a disease, or the like. 


    The ASHA Leader is a publication of the American Speech-Language and Hearing Association which provides information for the public and governs the professions of speech-language pathology and audiology.


    This proposed rule goes beyond speech-language and hearing services and regards global developmental issues. We hope it's helpful.

    The proposed Florida bathroom law

    in Politics Progressive

    On the March 26, 2015 episode of Liberal Dan Radio: 


    Ted Cruz has announced his candidacy. I will explain why he shouldn't be President because of one simple fact. I will also explain why that one simple fact has nothing to do with his place of birth. 


    Indiana and California are dealing with some very disturbing anti-gay legislation. I will go into each of those topics and give my opinion on them. 


    I will also be talking to my fellow Disney freak Kaden. Kaden lives in Florida and is very concerned about a new bathroom law that is being pushed in Florida and the impact it would have on transfolk like himself. 


    Those topics, headlines, tweet of the week, and more at 8pm Central on Liberal Dan Radio, Talk From The Left, That's RIght.

    Florida Senate Bill 1548 titled “An Act Related to Vessel Safety”, addresses many valid safety issues related to the anchoring of derelict boats.  However, it also contains controversial proposals limiting boaters’ ability to anchor in areas “within 200 feet of developed waterfront property” from one hour past sunset until one hour before sunrise.

    Joining us to talk about SSCA and their efforts in Florida is Dave Skolnick. Dave is a naval architect and marine engineer, a communications professional, and the immediate Past President of SSCA. He works as a member of the SSCA Concerned Cruisers' Committee (CCC) to support cruisers' rights. Dave owns Auspicious Works in Annapolis, Maryland providing communications and navigation equipment services and delivery support to cruisers.


    We'll also be joined by David Doyle, an AGLCA member who is a waterfront landowner in Florida.  He'll share his opinion on the issue.
