A Single Senator Is Blocking Reform Of The Foster Care System

The Families First Prevention Services Act, a sweeping reform of the broken foster care system, passed the House by a unanimous vote. In order to move it through the Senate, it was initially included in the Cures Act, but it was stripped at the request of Sen. Richard Burr, a North Carolina Republican. Young people who’d been through the foster system rushed to the Capitol on Monday to try to save the bill and get it attached to the CR, but, sources said, Burr continued to object, and Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell (R-Ky.) and House Speaker Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) agreed to keep it out.

  1. SadAny Sen. That heard or read what I did, and was a single man to keep it out. They throw it out. Sad well Donald Trump can veto it,in a couple weeks right. We need to let him know. It was South Carolina where the 3year old boy ,died after a lab, didn't test a hair sample. So they removed the child,and he died in a house fire. Come on your neighbor state is loosing his shirt on 8 lawsuits,against the lab,and DCF . So really ,is that what he turning this away for.
