The National Kidney Foundation has a long history of opposing all cuts to patient care, particularly relating to dialysis. Proposition 8, a ballot initiative put forth in California by the Service Employees International Union—United Healthcare Workers West (SEIU-UHW), could be disastrous for dialysis patients, causing clinics in low income and rural areas to shut down.
