Say no to Medicaid funding cut
More than 62 percent of residents of Virginia’s nursing homes are sponsored by Medicaid.
Most Medicaid recipients in nursing homes were productive citizens, teachers, policemen, farmers, etc., who simply have outlived their savings.
In caring for them last year, Virginia’s long-term care facilities lost $78 million. Now Gov. Kaine recommends that the General Assembly reduce funding for Medicaid by another $40 million.
