Long Term Health Care

Nursing homes, hospitals and pharmacies are all facing state budget cuts.

Assembly Majority Leader Mike Huebsch and Joint Finance Committee member Kitty Rhoades will lead the effort to overturn Gov. Doyle's vetoes causing those cuts.

Those vetoes eliminate funding increases for nursing homes and outpatient hospital services and cut pharmacy reimbursements for Medicaid and Senior Care.

Huebsch says, "One of the biggest challenges in health care today, one of the biggest problems in health care today is government, the fact the government consistently under fund programs that we consistently expand."

In order to override the governor's budget vetoes a two-thirds majority vote is required in both the Senate and the House.
