This article dated May 29, 2012 on the Delaware County Daily Times website talks about what the effect will be if Corbett’s budget cuts go through.  This article echos concerns I’ve being hearing other places indicating that if human services loses 20% of its budget the result could be more expensive than the savings the supports of the cuts claim would occur.  People who lose community based services will end up seeking out services in other place which could be emergency rooms or other inpatient treatment, other possible outcomes could include an increase in homelessness, and an increase in the number of mentally ill inmates in the corrections system.
