Quotes

..."We're just surviving day by day, trying to make sure that everybody's fed, and they are transported to where they need to be," said Rainer. "If it wasn't for U-Save Auto letting us use their vans, we would have never been able to transport these kids back and forth to school."
"As a matter of fact, we're going to send out invitations," says MCCSA Interim Director Angela Hicks, "and on that day prior to the reopening we're going to invite the community to come out, and take a looklook at what we've done in the shelter."
ROY: Obamacare or not, Republicans should focus on reducing the cost of health care.   "Whether they admit it or not, no Republican can win the White House in 2016 campaigning on taking away health coverage for 36 million people. What should Republicans do? Focus on the real problem. The principal reason for America’s high health care costs is the fact that so few of us pay for it directly. Switzerland and Singapore, the most market-oriented health systems in the world, give consumers control of their own health care dollars and expect their citizens to shop for care and coverage. The results are remarkable."  Avik Roy in Forbes
