So, who wins and who loses if this budget is passed?
•The more than 14 million Medicaid beneficiaries who could lose coverage, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
•Republican governors in states that expanded Medicaid because of the federal funding they received to expand coverage would see the money come to a halt.
•HHS staffers, who might see their agencies' budgets cut by $12.6 billion, or 16.2%, as proposed by Trump in March.
•Children who depend on Medicaid coverage. Avalere Health reported that group would lose up to $43 billion if a per capita cap on Medicaid was implemented. Texas and California would face the steepest cuts.
•States that want more flexibility to run Medicaid programs as they see fit. For instance, they would be able to impose work requirements.
•The Veterans Affairs, Homeland Security and Defense departments which would see $54 billion more in spending.
•The wall along the border of Mexico, which is funded in the draft budget.
•Corporate America which would benefit from huge tax cuts.
