Foster Care System Reform Slipping out of Reach


Lost amid last week’s news that the Cures Act, a pharma-friendly bill including funding for VP Biden’s “Cancer Moonshot,” passed the Senate was the fact that a sweeping reform of the foster care system (benefitting a population with zero political capital in Washington) won’t reach the president’s desk. At least not this president’s.

The Families First Prevention Services Act aimed to keep kids out of group homes that deliver terrible outcomes at high prices. But the Baptist Children’s Homes of North Carolina crying foul was enough to derail a bill that already passed the House via unanimous voice vote.
