"The Troubling Cost of Medicating America's Foster Children"
More than half a million children are in foster care in the United States, including 1,400 here in Maine. Typically, these children have been placed in care because they have been abused or neglected by their parents. Children in foster care also tend to have more serious mental, emotional or behavioral disorders than other children. As a consequence, many are exceedingly vulnerable.
Note: This is an article by Senator Susan Collins of Maine. The same person who will use her support for the Child Protective Industry as election year photo opportunities, suddenly concerned about their treatment. She does not care about child welfare fraud in the least, but rather jumps on the in thing of the day to position herself as a champion for children.
What a hypocrite.
