Compassionate conservatism: cut Medicaid services to the elderly, blind and disabled
Sorry, but you're just not that important:
The possibility that some elderly and disabled people would be kicked off the Medicaid rolls has the long-term care industry mobilizing to fight it, saying the reduction would threaten the ability of some facilities to stay open.
“We’ve got a damn bunch of ignorant people in the state legislature,” said Chester Broadway, 73, who had his leg amputated as a result of an infection and uses a wheelchair. He moved into The Covington about a year ago.
“If they were in this position, they wouldn’t be doing it,” he said.
You're right, Chester. But they don't run in the same circles as you and I.
