WASHINGTON, D.C. -- Republican Congressional leaders unveiled their proposed budget and it cuts $5-trillion from the federal budget over ten years.  It privatizes parts of Medicare and turns Medicaid into block grants for states.

 

Democratic U.S. Senator Jeff Merkley of Oreogn anticipated these changes.  "It's worth scrutinizing whether the budget strengthens Social Security or weakens it.  Some of the things that would weaken it include vouchering Medicare or privatizing Social Security and raising the retirement ages as it applies to the Medicare program."

 

Their budget would elminate the Affordable Care Act in its entirety and balances the budget in a decade.
