Senate GOP releases ObamaCare repeal bill with deep cuts to Medicaid

Senate GOP releases ObamaCare repeal bill with deep cuts to Medicaid | 22 June 2017 | Senate Republican leaders on Thursday released a draft of their long-awaited ObamaCare repeal-and-replace bill ahead of a high-stakes vote expected next week. The measure includes deep cuts to Medicaid and fundamentally reshapes that program from an open-ended government commitment to a system of capped federal payments that limit federal spending. The Republican measure phases out the federal funding for ObamaCare's expansion of Medicaid, which has provided coverage for about 11 million people in 31 states.
