Greater funding for the disabled ought to unite us all


RE “A birthday wish for James’’ (Op-ed, Jan. 29): Joan Vennochi makes a compelling case for continuing state support for severely developmentally disabled young adults. It is a disgrace that we as a state and as a nation devote so few resources to help support those most in need.

This is an issue that should unite both social and fiscal conservatives and liberal Democrats. Increasing funding to a reasonable level is justifiable fiscally and would help all of our citizens reach their highest potential. Isn’t that the dream that all of us have for our children?

Edwin and Marilyn Andrews
