Uproar over Obama Cuts to Medicaid and Social Security

Nov. 2010: Rep. Anthony Weiner, D-N.Y., talks about the drastic proposals by the Chairs of the Obama Debt Commission to cut Social Security, Medicaid, etc.

Also see this article by the AJC entitled: Doctors brace for possible big Medicare pay cuts.

Personally, we have trouble finding Medicaid approved providers for therapy. Additionally, a number of our therapists are quitting the state early intervention program due to lack of funding and poor policy and program choices leading to ethics dilemmas. All of this means fewer choices in medical providers for our son. These real life problems would be compounded by further cuts to SS and Medicaid.
