Republicans push through proposal blocking the desires of advocates for the developmentally disabled

Brownback doesn't need KanCare''s so called savings to get them off of the waiting lists. The state of Kansas is given federal $$ for that purpose. KanCare is already in a financial mess and needs HCBS $$ to sustain it. That is why he is so desperate (in my mind anyway) to get I/DD long term care into KanCare,
Which In return supports will suffer, TCM's will lose jobs (putting more people in the unemployment line) and already overworked and unpaid staff will take on the TCM responsibilities because it is doubtful that the staff with KanCare will be able too take on more job duties or want to take on that role.
