"I am writing," says Peri Jude Radecic, of Arizona Center for Disability Law, "to urge you to make sure the CLASS Act remains in the final health reform bill. I urge you to oppose any amendment to strip the CLASS Act from the bill. The CLASS Act will help persons with disabilities to remain independent in their home. There is a misperception that persons with disabilities belong in the Medicaid program and cannot work. While Medicaid is an essential safety net, millions of persons who now have or later develop disabilities work and want to take personal responsibility for their long term care needs. Persons with disabilities should not be forced into poverty to get the support they need to remain in their homes."
