Has our governor lost his mind?
I understand the need to make cuts in state spending,
but why in the world would he want to cut home health care?
Many disabled people depend on this program!
Cutting this program will send many people to nursing homes which will end up costing the state even more!
Sending people to nursing homes against their will is clearly a
violation of the American Disabilitys Act!
Talk about cruel and unusual punishment!
Punishing people for being disabled?
Anyone that votes for this is pathetic!
Count the jobs that will be lost, adding to the states unemployment.
Home health care workers are paid by the state.
Who do you think will be paying for the unemployment bennafits?
This just really adds up to saving the state money!
