Missourians hoping the Legislature does not make more cuts to the Medicaid program take their concerns to the Senate Appropriations Committee – asking, in fact, for restoration of some programs. One of them is Kansas City-area resident Sharon Aller, who used to get help for her mental and physical ailments through the Medical Assistance for Workers With Disabilities Program. That program was eliminated last year. She tells the panel she wants to be a productive member of society, but the Legislature’s cuts to programs that help her have made life much harder for her and others like her.
