It looks like Tom “Tall Tales” Price has struck again.
While pretending to care about victims of the opioid epidemic yesterday, HHS Secretary Tom Price said “nobody is interested in cutting Medicaid.”
He must have forgotten that his own health care repeal bills would gut Medicaid by more than 25% and that the Trump administration budget cuts it even further.
This is just the latest Whopper of a lie from the man in charge of our health care but who seems incapable of telling the truth about it. See the rest here.
- Congressional Budget Office: The Senate BCRA bill cut Medicaid by $756 billion over the next decade compared to the ACA, or a 26 percent reduction.
- Center on Budget and Policy Priorities: The Senate BCRA bill cut more than $2 trillion to Medicaid over the next two decades.
- Congressional Budget Office: The House repeal bill cut $834 billion from Medicaid over ten years.
