There are SO many people who still don't know the difference between Medicare and Medicaid. Even after people sit there and explain it to them, they still revert to Rethug jargon. I guess it's easier to stick your head into the sand. Until, of course, you're the one who needs the nursing home, right?
Putting caps on Medicaid is no different than cutting it. So, you can say goodbye to your kid's ABA, wraparound therapy services, aides in school, speech/occupational therapists, social skills, adult waivers - oh that's right, the providers don't take Medicaid.....mental health services and the pharmaceuticals that go with them, respite for families.
You can say, oh, they won't pass it. They may not. And again, they may. Do we really trust them? Bernie can do all the town halls he wants. They can agree with them on MSNBC all he wants. It doesn't make them "get it."
Get this. Cuts in Medicaid will actually KILL PEOPLE.
