Please do not vote for IHSS (In-Home Supportive Services) programs to be cut. It is cruelty to the elderly and disabled to take away this badly needed service. We have already had cuts on our SSI checks and our dental from Medi-Cal has been taken away from us except for emergency care. We have contributed to our nation throughout our lives and now that we are elderly and disabled we are treated like our basic needs don’t matter. Where is the compassion in all of this? We vote for our politicians to speak on our behalf and to represent us so please do your part to not let this cruelty to continue and please speak up loudly! Thank you! Jay Johnson, Colfax
