Orange County Register

About 40 health care workers held signs reading “Medicare not Millionaires” during a demonstration in Orange Tuesday against potential federal cuts to health spending. The group circled the sidewalk in front of the Chapman Avenue office of U.S. Rep. Ed Royce, R- Fullerton. Joanna Powers, a licensed vocational nurse at Western Medical Center Anaheim, said she’s concerned that Congress will make cuts to Medicare for seniors and Medicaid for the poor and disabled.
