(WASHINGTON) — The House Republican budget would leave up to 44 million more low-income people uninsured as the federal government cuts states' Medicaid funding by about one-third over the next 10 years, nonpartisan groups said in a report issued Tuesday.
The study estimated that 36 million to 44 million people would lose coverage from the combined impact of the block grant and repealing Obama's law. Researchers said they gave a range to account for different approaches that states might take to reduce their Medicaid rolls. Under the worst case scenario, Medicaid enrollment would plunge by nearly 60 percent from current projected levels.
BTW - This law has pretty much no chance of going through the senate, but some parts have the possibility of going through tho, the article says.

Sweet, the more people are weened off of the nanny state, the more people may have to learn to sustain themselves.
And for you saying it wont make it through Senate... you would be surprised what the dems will do to get some seats back. If they can get this pushed through, and blame it on the Republicans then they gain a ton of seats.edit on 10-5-2011 by jssaylor2007 because: (no reason given)
