The Senate and House healthcare bills pose the greatest danger to the health, safety and freedom of Oregonians with disabilities in recent history.
By capping Medicaid, in-home care and community supports that allow people to safely stay out of nursing homes and other institutions will be slashed.
Help for parents raising children with severe disabilities will have the same fate.
