this thursday, noon pioneer square.

for those of you who dont know, the governor is proposing massive cuts to services to seniors and the disabled. these cuts included home delivered meals, in home care, and pretty much all care for the developmentally challenged. if these cuts happen there will be thousands of home-care providers out of work, and their clients in nursing homes. not only is this pretty much putting a dollar figure on the lives of disabled people, but its also saying we arent worthy of living full lives. these cuts are shameful, and they will be terrible for the already insane unemployment rate.
