  • This is unbelievable….. How does a state that is supposed to be the richest in the US going to cut Medicaid to the most needy. How dare they use my tax money to fund something other than children needing therapy or home health of any kind. I promise I will get as many of the people I am directly connected to start sending letters to our new president coming in to office to get this back into a servicing of the most needy program. I am outraged.
