A lawsuit filed in federal court seeks a temporary restraining order to stop the Blunt Administration’s Medicaid cuts from taking effect on September 1st. St. Louis area attorney Deborah Greider, who represents several of the plaintiffs, says the suit centers on only one aspect of the Medicaid reform law – the elimination of durable medical equipment such as breathing apparatus and hospital beds. She says these things are guaranteed by federal law under the Social Security Act. The plaintiffs are seeking a temporary restraining order as a prelude to an injunction stopping the cuts from taking place.
