What EXACTLY is being proposed in the latest Medicaid cuts proposal by Gov. Brewer of AZ, and what effect could they have on the poor, families, mentally-ill, jobs, economy, and overall health-care in the state? Find out from an expert in our interview with medical expert Dr. Weisbuch. Gov. Jan Brewer of AZ has already made serious cuts to the state's Medicaid budget, affecting thousands of families, children, mentally ill and disabled across the state. Gov. Brewer and the AZ Republican legislature even cut off funding for critically-ill patients awaiting transplants - 96 Arizonans will die without this coverage and two already have (view our blog for more info: http://christiandemocratsofamerica.ning.com/profiles/blogs/special-report-on-the-restore). A much larger budget cut proposal has been made by Gov. Brewer that would take the already cut funding to a new extreme (http://christiandemocratsofamerica.ning.com/forum/topics/az-announces-severe-medicaid).
