HARTFORD - Connecticut hospitals are looking for relief, after yet another reduction, this time $60 million in state Medicaid payments, which they warn will make it much more difficult to provide even basic care.  The cut is part of Governor Dannel Malloy's recent move to slash government spending by more than $100 million, due to sharply lower tax revenue projections, as a result of this summer's stock market slump. Al and Jenn discuss the ramifications with guests Jennifer Jackson, president and CEO of the Connecticut Hospital Association and Patrick Charmel, president and CEO of Griffin Hospital in Derby.
