Human side of budget cuts- Quick On The UpTake Feb 15, 2009

Governor Tim Pawlenty’s proposed budget slashes dollars for Health and Human Services. We hear testimony from Ann Milikan about how she may die if the state cuts Minnesota care. We get help in covering this story from Marty Owings of KFAI and We talk about the photo project with founder Amy Wurdock, get a first hand report from The UpTake’s Corrine McDermid in Denver on President Obama signing the stimulus package there, and The UpTake’s Executive Director Jason Barnett tells us how other independent media are looking at The UpTake as a model they might want to follow.
