the counter.

consumers will be able to find something they can afford that works for them."sen. elizabeth warren (d-ma): there will be a lot more competition and a lot more innovation, and instead of having really high prices for hearing aids in the thousands of dollars, it's going to come down to the thousands of dollars. jess standup: but critics say if people skip the doctor's office, they might get an over-the-counter device they don't actually need or that they use incorrectly --- which could cause further hearing damage. some experts also worry infections, tumors and nerve problems could go undetected if patients no longer have to see a doctor. the hearing loss association of america says the fda needs to take those risks into consideration. barbara kelley, hlaa executive director : so someone doesn't put them in their ear and it blasts their hearing out. the fda now has three years to propose regulations for over-the-counter hearing aids. in washington, i'm jessica smith.

columbuswas more villian than hero and that this statue of the italian explorer ought to be removed from the lobby of city hall as soon as possible. jose villarreal/brown berets "...having this statue at city hall is akin to having a statue of hitler in jerusalem, it's unbelievable.....the brown berets say that columbus was guilty of genocide and enslaved indigenous people and his statue should not occupy such a prominent public place. defenders say columbus was far from perfect, but he advanced technology and contributed to the founding of america nonetheless. leave well enough alone says dave persinski of the italian- american heritage association. dave persinksi/italian- american heritage assoc. "....we have a statue of quetzaquatl in our saint james park and at the same time columbus was exploring the new world the aztecs were enslaving people too so where does it end..."it seems like we've been here before. another columbus critic once attacked the statue with a sledge hammer. now, sounding a theme that has led to the removal of several civil war era statues from public property across the country, more than 1000 people have signed the brown beret's on-line petition calling for the removal of this statue. jose villarreal".....they go hand in hand, whether it's here in or in charlottsville, all injustice is bound together and it's the duty of every person in every country

democratic party doe not seem to be able to capitalize.. why? what do you mean not capitalize.. we've beaten t hem on the appropriations.. we won every fight. the presidents numbers are in the high 30's which for a new president is remarkable to be so low. so i think he is making his own case.. the american people see for themselves that he does not share their values ..some who may have voted for him aren ow re-thinking.. others are just digging in their heels. we are getting ready for an eleciton in2018 which we expect to take back the congress. in the meantime, we hope to ger republicans to join us in our better deal..better jobs.. better pay.. better future."
