Thanks to both you and Bryan for the Information.
Let’s get calling and writing the Senate members. I just realized that at
least two couples would benefit by getting a divorce if this goes through
as the one spose is disable and getting SSDI and the blind person gets
only the Pension. If they divoced then the Blind person could trade their
BP for SSI and get full Medicaid. That’s called breaking apart familes.

The conference committee members from the Senate have been appointed; they
are: Senators Schaefer, Brown, Krauss, Green and Curls. I am unsure who the
House conferees will be.
