How Devastating Are Trump’s Proposed Cuts to Medicaid?






The Trump administration released its 2021 fiscal year budget to the tune of $4.8 trillion.

In addition to Trump's proposed budget cuts for programs like SNAP, TANF, and Medicaid, the Trump administration has taken aim at the Affordable Care Act’s expansion of Medicaid to low-income Americans seeking to impose serious caps on the program’s budget.

Governors of numerous states, including Republicans, have warned the plan would deeply impact healthcare for those who need it the most.

A recent viral video of an interaction between an Emergency Physician named Dr. Rob Davidson and Vice President Mike Pence went viral and highlighted the Trump administration’s plan to undermine Medicaid.

Sonali Kolhatkar speaks with Dr. Rob Davidson, the Executive Director of the Committee to Protect Medicare and an emergency physician who serves families in small communities across West Michigan.
