Destroys health care for millions of people — The Republican budget continues the GOP obsession with ending health care protections for millions of working families by dismantling the Affordable Care Act (ACA) and gutting Medicaid, carving $1.5 trillion from these and other health programs in the process. The Congressional Budget Office (CBO) estimated last year that the various Republican health plans would drastically raise costs for older and low-income adults, cause millions of Americans to become uninsured, and effectively take away protections for people with pre-existing conditions. Instead of supporting bipartisan efforts to make the law work better for the American people, Congressional Republicans have tried to destroy the ACA since it became law in 2010. The current Administration has outright sabotaged the law through numerous actions that have caused premium spikes, created uncertainty, and prevented the ACA marketplaces from working as well as they could – hurting American families in the process. CBO projects that in 2019, ACA marketplace average premiums will increase by 15 percent, and 3 million more people will be uninsured, largely as a result of the GOP tax scam’s elimination of the penalty for going without coverage. It gets worse: the Administration now says this aspect of the tax scam nullifies key ACA protections for people with pre-existing conditions. In Medicaid, the budget also imposes wasteful work requirements that will function primarily as a barrier to care. Ultimately, the steep Medicaid cuts in the budget will fall on seniors needing long-term care services, children with disabilities, and low-income families as cash-strapped states look to reduce services or drop people from coverage altogether.

Charges seniors more for their health care and ends Medicare as we know it — The Republican budget cuts $537 billion from Medicare, a large portion of which likely comes from imposing higher out-of-pocket costs on seniors. As in past years, the budget assumes replacing Medicare’s guaranteed benefits for future retirees with fixed payments toward the purchase of a private health plan or traditional Medicare. This is a cynical plan to reduce federal spending by unloading costs and financial risks onto seniors and disabled workers. The plan does nothing to address the root causes of high health care costs, such as price-gouging by pharmaceutical companies. While traditional Medicare technically remains an option, in reality it would wither away. Private plans would find ways to “cherry pick” the healthy. Sick and frail seniors in traditional Medicare would face skyrocketing costs. If a similar plan were in effect in 2024, the Congressional Budget Office estimates traditional Medicare Part B premiums would be 57 percent higher than current law. The budget’s Medicare cut also includes $59 billion from requiring beneficiaries in the Part D coverage gap to pay more out-of-pocket for their prescription drugs before their catastrophic coverage kicks in, by excluding manufacturer rebates from the calculation of Part D beneficiaries’ out-of-pocket costs. Past Republican budgets have assumed policies to restructure deductibles and coinsurance in a way that will mean most Medicare beneficiaries will pay more each year or skip care; and to increase the Medicare eligibility age to 67, while at the same time tearing down the ACA – leaving millions of older Americans with no access to affordable health care. This budget does not specifically mention these policies, but it is likely they are reflected in the numbers.

Cuts Social Security benefits —The budget cuts $4 billion from Social Security disability benefits, which it describes as “a first step” to Social Security reform. It also calls for a special expedited process to fast-track additional cuts.

Guts non-defense investments — The Republican budget adheres to February’s bipartisan budget agreement on discretionary spending levels for 2019. After 2019, however, the budget guts funding for non-defense discretionary (NDD) programs – a category that includes homeland security, education, research, veterans’ health care, environmental protection, enforcement of worker and consumer protections, transportation, and much more. Under this budget, NDD funding will decline from $597 billion in 2019 to $542 billion in 2020, then flatten out at $555 billion a year through 2028. In terms of purchasing power, the 2028 figure represents a 29 percent cut from the 2018 level. The completely inadequate future funding levels for these programs will jeopardize the safety, health, and well-being of American families and communities, while undermining the nation’s economic competitiveness. The budget does not clearly spell out where all of these cuts would come from, so every NDD function is at risk. Such recklessly extreme spending cuts would leave the government unable to carry out basic functions that the American people expect and rely on, such as protecting food safety, supporting medical and scientific research, ensuring clean air and water, maintaining roads and bridges, and fighting crime.

Severely slashes programs that protect basic living standards — The Republican budget cuts $923 billion from mandatory income security programs, a category that includes nutrition assistance, basic cash assistance, unemployment compensation, the Earned Income Tax Credit and Child Tax Credit, and federal civilian and military retirement. Cuts of this magnitude will weaken important financial protections and undermine basic living standards for struggling families, low-income seniors, and persons with disabilities. Providing these basic supports ensures stability for those looking for work and maintains a firm foundation for working Americans fighting every day to strive, thrive, and succeed. As in past years, the budget supports imposing duplicative and unnecessary work requirements on people receiving Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP) benefits. Achieving the level of savings assumed in the Republican budget will likely require much deeper cuts to SNAP. As in previous budgets, this is likely to be hidden in policies to “restore power to the states,” which usually translates as a plan to turn SNAP into a block grant, cutting off funding for eligible individuals and requiring cash-strapped states to either fill in the gap or take away food assistance from millions of working families, children, and seniors. Converting SNAP into a block grant would prevent the program from meeting increased needs during future economic downturns.

Good. Reducing money squandered on welfare will mean fewer povs breeding and fewer illegals invading our country.
