Quotes

Nick Clegg, deputy prime minister, launches the free school meals scheme. "To drop over £1bn on a universal benefit that excludes by child’s age rather than parent’s means is just preposterous."
"Unfortunately, as the article highlights, obtaining Social Security DisabilityDisability benefits is not so easy as critics would have most people believe, and the majority of initial claims are actually denied, even for those who truly need and deserve benefits. This is where having the right advocate by your side can make all the difference. An experienced, knowledgeable attorney will know how to navigate the Administrative claims system and ultimately have a valid claim approved. This is not a fight people should go at alone, especially when they are already vulnerable due to illness or injury. And finally, there is no need to worry about being able to afford an attorney because Social Security Disability lawyers are paid on contingency, meaning you only ever pay a fee if your claim is approved and you receive your benefits."
"Content of the press release is not intended to provide legal or other advice or to create an attorney-client relationship."
His death certificate states he died from respiratory failure due to cancer in both lungs, "which was also due to a consequence of Agent Orange and cigarette smoking." Cesare smoked cigarettes for about 20 years until 1991, his wife said
