My friend Christie posted on her blog the consideration by the Arizona legislature of the possible funding cuts to the Arizona Health Care Cost Containment System (AHCCCS). This would be devastating to her family as well as many others throughout the state.
Please take a moment to read Christie's entry to see what you can do to help urge the legislature to seek other avenues to solve the state's budget crisis. This is an example of why sometimes a tax increase does need to come into play; there are already major slashes in educational funding (K-12 and higher ed), but this is beyond the pale. Yes, something has to be done. Cutting and cutting and cutting isn't the answer.
