Outcry over Trump's cuts to Medicare hospital payments
Tuesday, 12 March 2019 WASHINGTON (AP) — As a presidential candidate, Donald Trump promised not to cut Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid. Once in the White House, Trump reneged on his Medicaid promise, and now he's being criticized for proposing steep Medicare payment cuts in his new budget. House Speaker Nancy Pelosi told The Associated Press on Tuesday that the budget embodies long-standing Republican ambitions "to make Medicare wither on the vine." "After exploding the deficit with his GOP tax scam for the rich, President Trump is once again trying to ransack Medicare, Medicaid and the health care of seniors and families across America," Pelosi said in a statement.
