Here was not only a blow in the face for all Free Soilers, Anti-Nebraska men, and Republicans, but a blow dealt straight at Mr. Douglas's doctrine of popular sovereignt37 as well. The court's opinion suffered no interference with slavery by any authority but that of a full-fledged State, and the exclusion of slavery from Territories was out of the question. Out of the question in law, it seemed, but yet not in fact. How the fact was to be settled the country had but to look to Kansas to see. There the rush of numbers and the clash of armed men had played a quick drama out, stained by blood and ruffianly force. Men had come first from Missouri near at hand, and out of the slave-holding States which lay back of her, and then from the free States of the northwest and far New England, some upon their own private errands of change or profit or adventure, some in organized bands sent forward by public or private subscription, by individuals or societies, engaged to see the crusade out upon the one side or the other. Men of initiative in the North had accepted the KansasNebraska Act as a challenge to go and take the land and hold it against slavery, by peaceful means or by force; had bought supplies and arms, and had equipped sturdy men by the score for the journey and the strife at its end.

Excerpt: . . . -6- Even if current rates of disability continue to decline, the number of seniors with 11 disabilities will have increased from 6. 2 million in 2000 to 7. 9 million; and The need for home-and community-based services ( HCBS ) will have increased 12 due to the desire of seniors to age in place; Current policies and programs for seniors are an accumulation of unrelated decisions and unintended consequences. Housing assistance programs are implemented with little reference to health care or supportive service needs.
