Divided Michigan Senate approves healthcare budget
Chicago Tribune, March 26, 2008

Sen. Deb Cherry said taking away Medicaid coverage for those young adults is foolish. Some of the young adults are living on their own after leaving foster care, and others would turn to costly emergency room care if they don't have health insurance, she said.
