Response to Saviolo (Original post)

13. When I moved to Massachusetts, I noticed more developmentally challenged people

than I had seen any where else I had been. One coworker at the time moved to the state to work because of the care his developmentally disabled son would get. During my time living in my state, the program has continued. Mitt Romney cut it back, but Deval Patrick restored it to it's past level. In my state, developmentally disabled adults can live independently, with visits from an assistant that helped them with issues like shopping and transportation. Some of the adults work regular jobs. I am proud to be a small part of my state.
