American Public Health Association Chides the House for Its Passage of Budget Resolution that Calls for Draconian Cuts to Medicaid

Washington, D.C., March 18, 2005 -We are greatly disappointed that the U.S. House of Representatives yesterday failed to follow the Senate's lead in shielding the Medicaid program from debilitating cuts. The roughly $20 billion in reductions over five years approved by the House are more than double the administration's proposed cuts over the same time period, greatly jeopardizing the security of the source of primary and preventive health care for 50 million of our nation's citizens.
