On the eastern end of Michigan’s Upper Peninsula, Rachel Fuerer’s school district depends on more than $870,000 in Medicaid funds each year. About 5 percent of its overall annual budget, the money goes toward providing medical services for more than 1,000 special education students in 19 public schools across 4,000 square miles.
Those dollars, though, will be at risk if Republicans in Washington get their way.
