Disability Advocates Vow to Keep Up Protests Until Governor Meets with Them

HARRISBURG, Penn. -- Angered that Governor Corbett will not meet with them, disability advocates have returned to the Capitol. Many of the demonstrators are Medicaid recipients who say further cuts will force them to live in nursing facilities and institutions.
The activists gathered inside the Capitol Rotunda Monday. Others moved to the hallway outside the Governor's second floor office, closing the ceremonial reception room. Still more went to the offices of the chairmen of the House and Senate Appropriations Committee.
