The man who helped Governor Matt Blunt put together his proposed budget catches some heat for the proposed cuts in the Medicaid program. But Michael Keathley tells skeptics the State cannot afford to fully fund Medicaid and fully fund schools at the same time without a tax increase – and Blunt won’t support a tax increase. Critics of the Blunt plan say they don’t think the Governor has thought through his cuts. They say the Medicaid costs might be reduced, but other programs will see their costs increase as Medicaid recipients look for help through them.
