CALIFORNIA GOV. Jerry Brown is proposing more heavy cuts to public health and welfare in his 2012-13 state budget plan released January 5. But activists are ready to resist--plans are in the works for days of action and an occupation in March, and the California Federation of Teachers is promoting a ballot box initiative to raise taxes on the rich.The impact will be felt across the state if Brown gets his way with the budget. Families with children face a $450 million cut in child care subsidies, and seniors would suffer a $678 million loss to the Medi-Cal health program. The In-Home Supportive Services program serving people with disabilities would be cut by $168 million, and CalWORKS, the program that assists poor families, would lose $1 billion. "We are making some very painful reductions," Brown told reporters at the Capitol. "This is not nice stuff, but that's what it takes to balance the budget."
