"Dr. Richardson correctly observes that poor children in particular are utterly subject to policy and politics. [She] is an important voice for a segment of our society who, unfortunately, has no lobby at our General Assembly or Congress. The sad truth exposed by Dr. Richardson is that poor families are helpless….Government action is not triggered until a child tests positive for lead poisoning, by which time the child has been permanently damaged. The goal must be prevention, not after-the-fact treatment….Kudos to Dr. Richardson for addressing this important issue."
