Doctors, hospitals, unions push to stop Medi-Cal cuts
Thousands of doctors, nurses, unionized health care workers and Medi-Cal patients flocked to the Capitol on Tuesday to protest possible cuts to the Medi-Cal program. Gov. Jerry Brown's proposed budget calls for a 10 percent reduction in payment to Medi-Cal providers, a move that opponents say would reduce the poorest patients' access to health care. So far, Brown has shown no signs of backing down from the proposed cut. The "We Care for California Coalition," which includes health care providers, insurance firms and associations representing doctors and hospitals, organized more than 100 buses to bring protesters from across California to the rally.
