Here are a couple of articles backed by new research that are worth taking a look at: A new study on the Medicaid expansion my administration fought for under the Affordable Care Act—and how these policy decisions affect lives in real terms:

REPUBLICANS IN THE SENATE VOTED THIS WEEK TO CUT MEDICARE AND MEDICAID IN HALF The GOP just keeps coming for your health care again and again and again and again. And this time, they want to do it while extending President@realDonaldTrump ’s tax cuts for the wealthiest few. No

With every petty attack on John McCain, Trump diverts attention from the fact that his budget cuts: --$1.5 trillion from Medicaid --$845 billion from Medicare --$25 billion from Social Security He'd rather keep the nation focused on his feud with the deceased than his agenda.

gas·light ˈɡaslīt/ (v) manipulate (someone) into questioning their own sanity Ex: It's gaslighting for the GOP to blow a $2 trillion hole in the deficit to give the rich a tax cut then suggest cutting Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid as the only fix for that new deficit.

It’s this simple: If Republicans win in November, they will do everything they can to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security because their tax cuts for corporations made the deficit go up. We can’t let it reach that point. Vote on November 6.

Here's the thing-- Mitch McConnell is gaslighting us. Republicans rammed through a bill to give huge tax breaks to corporations and the mega-rich, and now they're using its consequences as an excuse to propose cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. It's all part of the GOP fever dream.

Make no mistake: After they borrow $1.5 trillion to pass a windfall tax break for corporations and the rich, Trump, Ryan, and McConnell will seek cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to pay it back.

Remember: the two main means-tested programs in America are Medicaid and SNAP (food stamps). In each case most beneficiaries are children, elderly, or disabled. The idea that we're handing out billions to lazy bums is false and slanderous.

"Sorry, we have to cut your Medicaid. There's just not enough money" -- guy flying on a Lear Jet charter to Aspen.

Seriously. This is BANANAS. You couldn't get ALL 50 state Medicaid directors to agree any anything else in health care policy.
