San Francisco Chronicle

Billions of federal stimulus dollars that boosted Medicaid programs for the past two years will run out Friday, while at the same time California is trying to get approval for a series of cuts to the health program for the poor.

It could be a one-two punch for more than 7 million Californians enrolled in Medicaid, known here as Medi-Cal.
