Assemblywoman Bonnie Watson Coleman (D-Mercer):
“The Republican budget has the moral core cut out of it.
“I think that this whole budget is ideologically driven. I think this is all about a negative impact on those that have the least: working families; working poor families; elderly; disabled.
“I don’t think this budget gives two hoots about the quality of care and the length of life for people who have no other options. And it’s sickening.”
