Citizens Against Cuts for the Disabled in South Carolina
On February 28th 2010 the House Ways and Means Committee in the State of South Carolina voted 17to 7 to cut all funding resources for the disabled except those living in institutions or group homes. The impact of this measure will adversely effect people who already have difficult lives. Families could be forced to choose between caring for their loved ones or putting food on their tables. They could be forced to figure out which illness they should medicate for since medicaid will only pay for three prescriptions. Single parents can no longer work because they will need to care for their loved ones 24 hours a day seven days a week. Please help us by signaling to our legislative body that this is not an acceptable solution. It is morally and ethically wrong.
