Advocates Protest Obama Proposed Cuts

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Hundreds of disability-rights advocates congregated on the West Lawn of the Capitol on Wednesday to protest billions of dollars in proposed cuts to Medicaid.
States are cutting Medicaid, and federal cuts on top of state cuts would be ... catastrophic,” said protester Jessica Sadowsky of Maryland.
President Obama proposed a major debt-reduction plan earlier this week designed to cut more than $3 trillion over the next decade. An estimated $580 billion would be saved through cuts to entitlement programs.
