Advocates Protest Proposed Cuts to IHSS, Health Care
On Wednesday, more than one dozen advocacy groups rallied in Sacramento to protest Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger's (R) proposed cuts to In-Home Supportive Services, adult day health care, mental health services and Medi-Cal, California's Medicaid program. Advocates said the proposed cuts would force many residents into institutionalized care.
