Few people know you can reduce your chances of having retarded children. Taking care of your health if you're planning to have children, conceiving before you're old enough for genetic damage to happen, or even storing your eggs and sperm at a young age before damage happens, these all can prevent what looks like a totally random tragedy of genetics.

Also what position you fark her with can change your chances dramatically. So don't ever:

Inquisitive Inquisitor: GORDON: So the state-run benefits department just randomly sorts applicants into 2 piles, approves one, and rejects the other.

This will never happen under Obamacare.

How is that any different from what health insurance companies already do?


This.

 Already happens with medicaid. That's why you have to keep applying. If you qualify, you won't necessarily get in, you'll be part of the lottery of people who *might* get in. They don't officially tell you that of course, but if you look at the numbers (at least back in the early 2000's) and the people getting approved/denied that's almost certainly what it was.

xaldin: Inclined to agree. There's simply no point to maintain them from a society standpoint. Back in the day the parents would have already drowned them.


I've noticed that tards, after some initial help getting started usually earn their keep and don't cause trouble.  I can't say the same about a lot of 'normal' people.

Tard + $60,000 worth of special education -- works the register, can count change. Only employee that can be trusted with the deep fat fryer.
Precious Snowflake + $60,000 art school -- works the register, can't count change or hit the 'no mayo button'

There are no arbitrary health insurance decisions. Never. Move along.

This is the list of requirements for he benefit they are claiming: Link

Near the bottom it specifies they must be over 3 years old. This is because for the most part any child under 3 would fall into the category of being in need of help anyway with walking etc. Sounds like the claim for the child that was allowed was actually the mistake and not the disallowed one.

How much more care is needed for a 10 month old with Downs than one without? They're all pretty helpless at that age.

FTA: "Arthur and Alfie, who have three older brothers, need daily physiotherapy to build their weakened muscles. They both have identical heart and lung issues and eye problems which all require frequent hospital visits.

The boys have monitors fitted at night time to assess their breathing and sensors have to be changed every five hours."

/3 is the number of the counting, and the number of the count shall be 3

What about mentioning that these people will never contribute to society and are a drain on our already stretched resources?


There's a difference between people who do it on purpose and those whom were born fantastically unlucky.

And fellow downs patients wonder why we don't want these same government fools running our health system.

FarkinNortherner: Odd. FWIW, though, the mother isn't quite right about them being assessed separately rather than as twins - the caseworker can consider whether the resources being used for one child can be shared (nobody needs two disabled ramps, for example) as part of their assessment.

She said she had to file two separate claims and it sounds like each child was evaluated separately, with two different people doing the evaluations.

"Should be" and "could be" are not the same thing as "are" especially when dealing with a bureaucracy.

WrathofDog: I suspect a computer or a claims rep discarded one of the applications as duplicate. It happens. And less likely although still possible, it may be that the system hasn't performed the correct application standardizations.


I rather suspect you're right.  I had a long go-round with the lab and the insurance company over a "duplicate" that wasn't.  The lab just kept resubmitting without addressing the problem and then they finally stopped, probably from messing up for so long that it was rejected as being too old.

DLA has two components, Mobility and Care. Your child must be over three years old to receive the Mobility component, but there is no age limit on the Care component.

Identical twins with Down's? Fine, I'll say it in case no one else has:  Arent they all identical?? I can't tell any Down's apart. [insert 'that's retarded' quip here]
