As policy makers grapple with for cuts of this sort, not an ax.•a large and articulate constituencyexists for these programs. We ap-plaud the strength of their advocacy. Those served by Medicaid are thepoorest and most fragile people inour society. They include adults withdisabilities and elders who, whilethey had the good fortune to live for along time, have become ill and spentdown their resources in order to payfor healthcare. People depending onMedicaid often are unable to speakup for themselves. Although the recipients of Med-icaid may seem invisible to mostpeople, they shouldn’t be: the fastestgrowing cohort in American societyis elders above the age of 85. As careneeds increase with age, Medicaiddollars become a critical tool for low-income elders to have quality of lifethrough both home and community-based resources and through thelong-term care system. It is immoralto expect that these elders, who havebuilt the society the rest of us nowenjoy, should be ineligible for criticalservices when they are most in need. Medicaid also provides significantnumbers of jobs in healthcare. EveryMedicaid dollar circulates multipletimes in local economies throughthe expenditures of elder care work-ers. Significant cutbacks in Medicaidfunding will increase unemploymentin the healthcare sector and will beharmful to every state.5772 ‫סתיו‬ ‫דור לדור‬ 29
