Bob Semro's piece on the House-passed budget and its impact on Medicaid (Straight talk on health care reform: Ryan budget plan and impact on Medicaid in Colorado) was posted as part of Viewpoints on the Kaiser Health News website.
Democrats went on the offensive yesterday, attacking Republicans over a proposal to privatize Medicare and scale back Medicaid.
The Democratic-controlled U.S. Senate yesterday easily rejected a Republican-controlled House-backed budget plan calling for major reforms to the nation's health care programs.
Colorado progressive groups said such reforms to the nation's health care programs for the poor and elderly would cost Colorado greatly.
