From The Hill (http://thehill.com/blogs/healthwatch/medicaid/172437-liberal-governors-request-for-medicaid-cuts-puts-dems-in-tough-spot):

President Obama and congressional Democrats have been put in a tough spot by California Gov. Jerry Brown’s (D) request to cut Medicaid spending by 10 percent....

The debate comes as California seeks to plug a $26.6 billion budget gap, the worst of the 50 states. To get there, the state last month adopted a bare-bones budget for 2011-2012 that slashes Medicaid by about $1.4 billion.


In a June 27 letter to the president, Brown urged Obama to approve the state’s request.

Read the whole thing. And remember, this makes Ryan's plan look weak as he didn't ask for the level this Dim is asking for.

With all the dope Cali smokes, I'm surprised doctors can stay in business in that state.
