    Jackson Tindell, 6, from Knoxville, needs speech, occupational and feeding therapies and also uses a
    feeding tube.

    The expenses -- which includes a formula that costs $1,700 a month, according to WVLT -- are overwhelming for his parents, Angela and Randy, who tried for 10 years to have a baby before Angela got pregnant at 42 years old.

    Crazy laws and regulations but there are always ways to get around laws and regulations. Divorce is a legal and civil proceeding but doesn't say the ex's can't live together. Divorce is often recommended for LTC benefits as well

    Client called to state she quit her job in November, and thanked for the advice to do so. See, if she had 2 more months of income, Obamacare would have clawed back 4 months of her income. Obamacare......creating one couch potato at a time
