Texas lawmakers, intent on filling a budget shortfall, have proposed slashing Medicaid funds for nursing homes by more than a third in a state that already ranks among the very lowest in the nation.

Experts say the results could be nothing short of catastrophic. Six out every 7 homes in the Houston area claim they will likely shut their doors, sending thousands of the state's most frail and vulnerable in search of shelter.

This truly is terrible. It just breaks my heart to think that this would happen to the elderly.
