Why don't you leave up calling Rick Stream's office to Chris Gray and Denny.
You all will be up there and I think it is better coming from the President
and Executive Director.

I admit it’s been about a week since I spoke with Rick Stream’s office, just
before taking off for DC. At that time, they assured me that he did not
support the cutting of the Medicaid/State Medical as we know it above the
poverty level. However, I do know from other calls I’ve made that it seems
those on the Budget committee, include Stream, have become more tight lipped
about this issue as if its passage is more inevitable than not.
That is why our continued presence in this discussion is so important. That’s
why, despite the fact there’s no public testimony on Monday, I feel it
necessary that some of us show our presence at the Budget committee hearing
after our session at the Capital Plaza in the afternoon.
AS for it being an election year, I’m not sure if many of these folks
estimate or underestimate the impact of the disability community’s voting
bloc. My sense is that it’s not as much a factor as we would like to think.
Disabilities is an area that certain representatives on either side of the
aisle choose to take up. It’s not an area that one party or another chooses
to emphasize over the other.
I’ll make sure to give Rick Stream’s office a call on Monday morning before
oru after I take the train to Jeff City. I, too, want to find out more on
his exact stance.
