    Crippled US soldiers DENIED TYSABRI but OK for Lawyer?

    The FREEDOM to STAND UP would cost the US government about $6000 worth of TYSABRI which it has in its military hospitals RIGHT NOW throughout the WORLD!

    The FREEDOM to STAND UP after a CRIPPLING SPINAL CORD or TRAUMATIC BRAIN INJURY isn't FREE, but it may be a lot more COST-EFFECTIVE than giving 'minimally effective' drugs like steroids to fight inflammation. Worse yet, the TENS oF THOUSANDS of dollars in additional surgeries & the TENS OF THOUSANDS in DECADES of physical therapy & support while in a WHEELCHAIR!

    WORSE YET! The realization by the young men & women serving in Iraq & Afghanistan that there is something TERRIBLY WRONG with the medical care that the military is giving them....

    ....our FREEDOM FIGHTERS.....not the VERY BEST & LATEST TECHNOLOGY...but technology that is decades OLD & stands in the DOORWAY to STANDING UP....

    ....just like George Wallace did in the schools in the south....
