On Ask Your Lawmaker my question: "Will you add parenting education and support to the benefits covered under the Affordable Health Choices Act and, if so, what strategies do you propose to encourage parents to use such services and to pay parenting educators?" got a reply on August 6th, 2009 from U.S. Representative Charles Rangel, Democrat from New York.  He said: "I have not given it much thought. Sounds like it’s a good idea." Yeah, horray, and …needless to say… I will be contacting Rep. Rangel to discuss the issue further.
