We need a law for this, why?

Early detection and correction of hearing loss is vital to the health and future of all people. It will reduce intervention costs and will aid the baby and family in detecting the hearing loss as early as possible. AS much as I hate spending tax payers money, this is necessary and will save dollars down the road. To save money, Congress should look at the age a child starts receiving social security disability payments for a blind or deaf child. Unless they have other issues, it cost no more money to care for them than any other child.

I don't see the Deaf care organizations demanding this expenditure. Why do we pay for doctors if it isn't to check on infant hearing. When these kids hit pre-teen they will be wearing blasting headsets or car radios which will deafen them. Spend, Spend, Spend. NO WAY

Where in the Constitution does it say that this is the government's responsibility? It should be done by private research, not government.
