Senate Eliminates All Medicaid Cuts in Budget

The Bush Administration was dealt a big blow to its proposed federal budget for 2006, and to its pride. The Senate eliminated all cuts related to Medicaid in the budget, therefore striking a huge blow to the heart of the 2006 Federal budget. Medicaid cuts were a large portion of the cuts proposed in the budget, and essential if the President is to reduce the deficit by half in 2009. Although realisticly, that reduction was never expected to happen. It gives the Administration a wake up call and forces it to look into other alternatives if it is to reduce the deficit at all.

Excerpt
WASHINGTON - The Senate voted Thursday to strip all proposed Medicaid cuts from the $2.6 trillion budget for next year, killing the heart of the plan's deficit reduction and dealing an embarrassing setback to President Bush (news - web sites) and Republican leaders.
