In December, the draconian Medicaid spending cuts announced by Gov. David Paterson caused worry that the UJA-Federation network would have to shut down nursing homes and other health facilities.
The New York Jewish Week certainly won’t be winning any awards for distanced objectivity any time soon.

Cuomo’s approval rating among Jews was 66 percent, compared with Paterson’s 40 percent, which is a likely casualty of Paterson’s tough-medicine budget cuts.
If the rest of the Jewish community is referring to the cuts as “draconian,” I wouldn’t doubt it.
