Wolves going after sheep

I understand education is very important, but maintaining care for our disabled adults is far more important than any of these budgets being cut. I work for disabled adults and know people working with disabled at Valley Mountain Regional, Howard Training Center, the autistic group, United Cerebral Palsy, ARC and other groups. I don't understand how anyone, especially the governor, could take away income and dental care from such innocent people. Why are we always like the wolves going after the sheep when we have lived beyond our means in this state?

Instead of acting like cowards and attacking the weak, I can write a list of targets to cut the fat. The educational system has hundreds of programs for free money in the Title IV programs. Cut back on state jobs along with programs that are affiliated with nonprofit status, and minimize county-city positions where one person can do several jobs if coordinated correctly.
