Trump’s 2020 budget proposes $1 trillion cut to Medicare, Medicaid

The White House released its 2020 budget proposal on Monday,
proposing more than $1 trillion in cuts to the popular programs Medicare
and Medicaid and giving insight into what the executive branch would do
if Congress didn’t control the federal government’s pocketbook.
The most notable cut comes out of Medicaid, a health program for
people who are low-income or have a disability, which Trump proposes
cutting by more than $700 billion over 10 years.
