Unacceptable cuts

To the editor:

Gov. Paul LePage’s budget cuts to minimize health benefits to Maine residents are going to affect a large population that depends on these benefits to stay alive.

The stress that’s going to be on the Department of Health and Human Services and social service agencies in this state will be paramount.

This is a form of genocide. We have to stop this from happening. Write, email or go to Augusta to voice your opinion or go to support the people who oppose this limitation of health benefits for some of our Maine people who truly need it.

This is not good, folks, and it makes me sick to think of the outcome that might just happen.
