Health Leaders Media

The American Hospital Association and National Nurses United are criticizing the $2.4 trillion debt ceiling and deficit reduction package that they believe could mean hundreds of billions of dollars in cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and other safety net programs.

The House passed the deficit reduction package bill by a 269-161 vote Monday evening. It is expected to clear the Senate Tuesday.
