Last month we found out
that Medicaid services – and likely other services as well – are back on the budget chopping block thanks to the GOP majority in the NC Legislature. Today WRAL reports
the problem is getting worse. And the GOP’s answer to “shift money around” is simply more code for cutting, either in Medicaid or in one of the many other critical services provided by NC’s Department of Health and Human Services. But, as Rob Thompson of the Covenant with North Carolina’s Children said
, “The important thing is the people who need the services.”
We wholeheartedly agree, and that’s why our own Nicole Dozier sat down last month with two great women who are in the crosshairs of the budget debate.
