Massive Health Rally Opposes State Medi-Cal Cuts

Thousands of health care providers gathered at the State Capitol for what they’re calling “the largest health care rally in state history.” They’re calling on Governor Jerry Brown and lawmakers to restore a billion dollars in looming cuts to Medi-Cal. The cuts to providers in the Medi-Cal system had been on hold because of a law-suit, but a recent court ruling paves the way for cuts the activists say could force lay-offs and reduced care for low-income Californians who rely on Medi-Cal.
