President Donald Trump’s proposed budget would end federal Medicaid funding for millions, and the program’s chief advocate, Senator Patty Murray, is calling the proposal “reckless and reckless.”
Murray, who chairs the Senate Health, Education, Labor and Pensions Committee, tweeted Thursday morning that she was concerned that the budget would slash Medicaid by as much as $20 billion over the next 10 years.
The proposal would also eliminate the Children’s Health Insurance Program and Medicare Advantage.
The cuts are likely to hit Medicaid the hardest.
Medicaid covers more than 70 million Americans and provides health care to nearly 2.7 million children and adults.
The program is funded through Medicaid expansion, which allows states to expand eligibility and pay for care for lower-income adults.
Many states are not participating in Medicaid expansion and will have to cut spending.
The federal government pays the vast majority of Medicaid expansion costs.
It also covers a smaller portion of the cost of caring for the uninsured.
The Trump administration says its plan would reduce the federal deficit by $1.4 trillion over 10 years, but it’s unclear how the budget’s savings would be distributed.
The budget’s elimination of Medicaid would result in a cut of $10 billion from Medicaid.
That would amount to about one-fifth of the federal budget.
The proposed cuts are expected to reduce federal spending on Medicaid by $20.5 billion over 10, 15 and 20 years.
Trump’s proposal would eliminate funding for the Children, Infants and Toddlers (CITV) Health Program, which helps low-income children in the U.S. go to and from preschool and day care.
The cut to CITV would cut $2.6 billion over a decade, according to a report from the Kaiser Family Foundation.
The reduction would also mean less money for the National Center for Health Statistics, which tracks health data.
The National Institutes of Health and the National Institute of Health are responsible for the data collection for the program.
The CITv program has been criticized by some as a waste of money.
The Congressional Budget Office estimated the program would save $4 billion a year by 2020.
The White House also says the cut to Medicaid would cost $2 billion a month.
However, it’s not clear how much money the cuts would cost Medicaid.
