A quick refresher on what “block-granting” Medicaid would mean and why it’s so dangerous.
Here's what that would mean for Medicaid.
Because block-granting is a backdoor strategy for making deep cuts, Medicaid block grants are intentionally designed to make cuts grow deeper every year.
House Dems have already vowed to investigate the Trump administration’s health care sabotage efforts & several spoke out immediately against this latest move to slash Medicaid.
For context: the Congressional Budget Office estimated that more than 208,000 “unnecessary deaths” would occur by 2026 if the Senate GOP health care repeal plan had taken effect. vox.com/the-big-idea/2…
The Trump administration has said via its Medicare & Medicaid director @SeemaCMS Verma that it’s been carefully refining this cruel policy for weeks (recognizing how unpopular cutting Medicaid is).
