Having a wife and three grown daughters, I understand the importance of breast screening.

However, I'd like to remind you that since the state is completely out of money, bankrupt, that it's unacceptable to expect a bottomless pit of social programs.

Either way, I hope your experiences shed some light the reality that we can't go on the way that it was before.

If you were one who wanted big government and countless social programs, I'm afraid you've gotten what you hoped for. Your breast screening program is a victim of that desire.

I agree 100% we cannot as a over taxed middle class continue to pay for all the programs that cities and counties provide for the lower class. Make them pay up front and not send the money out of country while getting free services.

To be eligible now, you must be an illegal alien with an anchor baby and an Obama stamp on your forehead.
