Gov. Jerry Brown's budget proposal includes cutting all IHSS funding for domestic services -- things such as cooking, cleaning and laundry -- for certain recipients; foes of the plan say this would mean more than 380,000 elderly and disabled people losing this aid. The budget also includes a proposed 8.4 percent cut to all IHSS recipient hours, atop the 3.6 percent cuts from the 2010 budget.
