as susan collins (r) says...we're going to gut a 50 yr. old safety net without holding ANY hearings

that's the deal with medicaid folks.

no hearings about putting grandma on the curb of her nursing home

no hearings about how the poor will be affected.

he hearings of how many will die

no hearings whatsoever.

Medicaid is the largest source of funding for medical and health-related services for people with low income in the United States, providing free health insurance to 74

million low-income and disabled people (as of 2017).

1. No mention about the millions of medicaid based healthcare workers too.

 

Nursing home staff and doctors and properties... most all without a job if you take the money that directly funds their paychecks.

Maybe they can all shift into mortuary services in anticipation of the death-toll that ditching Medicaid would cause.

2. That's what their oligarch and Russian overlords want

We will be weakened. Our social contract will be nullified. Our society falls to pieces and we fight each other for scraps. They want us to be divided so we are easier to conquer
