New Jersey hospital workers rally against proposed budget cuts

AP/Philadelphia Inquirer, May 13, 2008
New Jersey hospital workers rallied outside the Statehouse against Gov. Jon Corzine's plan to cut state hospital aid by 14 percent. The protesters waved signs reading "Some Cuts Never Heal" and "Imagine a Day Without Us," and some wore surgical masks that read, "These cuts make me sick." Much of the hospital cuts would come from money given by the state to help treat New Jersey's 1.5 million uninsured residents. Protestors predicted that if the cuts are approved, it would result in shuttered hospitals, unemployed workers, eliminated services, longer drives and longer waits for patients.
