Ryan’s budget plan cuts health reform
Modern Healthcare

House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-Wis.) proposed on Tuesday a spending blueprint that would repeal the 2010 healthcare overhaul and make fundamental changes to Medicare and Medicaid as part of an ambitious plan to balance the federal budget in 10 years.

The ideas are familiar ones. Proposals to turn Medicare into a premium-support program and Medicaid into a block-grant program were part of the House GOP’s last two budget proposals, neither of which moved beyond the House floor after the lower chamber passed the measures.
