No Medicaid cuts in health bill
Here are the official numbers. The federal government will spend 393 billion in 2017. The health care bill being debated calls for a 20% INCREASE in Medicaid spending topping out at 464 billion a year in 2026. The Democrats demand a 58% increase by 2026. This is how the Democrats come up with their 772 billion in Medicaid CUTS. It is not a cut, it is a reduction in future growth. Only in government can you spend more money and call it a cut. Try doing that with your house hold budget and people will laugh at you when you say you are massively cutting things even though you are spending more.
