On Wednesday, activists from across the state gathered in Harrisburg for the “My Medicaid Matters” rally. ADAPT, a disability rights group, and other activist groups called out Governor Corbett for cutting funding for Pennsylvania’s Medicaid home and community based services and implementing sweeping changes to the state’s infrastructure for providing home and community based long term services and supports.
The rally was capped off by a march from the Capital Building to Mitt Romney’s campaign headquarters in downtown Harrisburg. Romney’s proposed budget plan would cut funds to Medicare and Medicaid, leaving many people without a life-line. Individuals in wheelchairs made their way into Romney’s campaign offices, at one point blocking the main entrance of the building. The rally was part of a large national day of action that was happening throughout the country.
