Trump To Cut Children’s Health Programs…

The BLOTUS’ Budget Proposal… Making America Great Again, on the backs of children and the poor.

(CNN) – President Donald Trump’s budget plans to cut the Children’s Health Insurance Program by at least 20% over the next two fiscal years and slash Medicaid, which covers millions more children.

Millions of poor and working families could lose their health coverage if his proposed budget, released Tuesday and called “A New Foundation for American Greatness,” gets through as-is. It would hit children’s health care hard and break Trump’s campaign promise to “save” Medicaid “without cuts.”

Poor children are covered by a complicated mix of programs. Medicaid covers 37 million children. The Children’s Health Insurance Program, known as CHIP, has 8.9 million enrolled. Together, these two programs cover about one in three American children, according to the Kaiser Family Foundation.
When Trump ran on a promise to end Obamacare and give people better health care, he promised not to touch Medicaid “like every other Republican,” and yet Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney said Monday that Trump personally approved each cut.

Mulvaney emphasized that the biggest savings in the budget come from cutting or scaling back entitlement programs.
The budget would also slash other programs that help the working poor. It cuts food stamps, student programs, the earned-income credit, the child tax credit and disability payments, among others, while increasing military spending, border security and infrastructure.
