Please do not let another year go by without passing some kind of Medicaid plan.  People have died this past year because no Medicaid plan was in place.  Also, Direct Support Professionals for handicapped and disabled people only earn $8 an hour and there is constant turnover of employees.  These handicapped individuals need stability in their already fragile lives.  People make more at fast food restaurants than this.  Please help those who are in desperate need in our state by passing these two bills.

Thank you,
