How can you say $10 billion Medicaid cut? (See Modern Physician, April 29.)It is a decrease in the planned future increased allotments (growth of the Medicaid budget), not a decrease in dollar amount from what is currently being spent on Medicaid. Yours is a liberal spin and causes you to lose credibility with me. I had merely suspected this, but now I am convinced. I suppose you object to "privatizing" Social Security as well and do not think that it is in trouble.
