In my previous post, I covered what Republicans want to do to Medicaid. In this post, I intend to delve into why Republicans want to gut Medicaid.
Republicans present their budget proposal as a solution to the "problems" of Medicaid and Medicare, which their budget cites as two of the biggest drivers of national debt. But, as I demonstrated in my previous post, Medicaid and Medicare aren't the problem. They're part of the much larger problem of rising health care costs — a problem the GOP budget doesn't solve. (More on that in an upcoming post.)
If Republicans are intent on ignoring the white-coated elephant in the room, and solving "problems" that exist in their minds only, that raises an important question about their plans for Medicaid.
Help us spread the word about these important stories...
