Sen. Menendez: Medicaid Cuts Are Off The Table

Sen. Robert Menendez (D-NJ) told reporters Wednesday that the GOP’s proposal to convert the Medicaid financing structure into block grants for the states is off the table, saying the proposal “is not, in my mind, a plan that will find currency in our caucus.” “While Medicare has been the focus … Medicaid, certainly in the context of block granting, is also not acceptable,” he said. A poll released today found that 63 percent of Americans are “very concerned” about the GOP’s proposed Medicaid cuts.
