TRUMP BUDGET: Health care advocates warn that proposed budget puts health care benefits at risk for

Updated: Mar 2

Trump Administration’s budget proposes $1 trillion in cuts to Medicaid and the Affordable Care Act over ten years


Raleigh, N.C. – Today, the White House proposed a $4.8 trillion budget that would further the attack on our health care and slash major domestic and safety net programs, including Medicaid and the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP).


Piedmont Rising Executive Director, Casey Wilkinson, released the following statement responding to the Trump administration’s budget proposal:


“Less than one week after President Trump vowed to protect American’s health care, his proposed budget makes clear that our health care continues to be under attack, and that we need our lawmakers to stand up to protect it. For years, Senators Tillis and Burr have repeatedly vowed to protect North Carolinians’ well-being, but they have been silent on this proposal, which would take health coverage away from millions of North Carolina families and cut aid to millions more struggling to make ends meet.


The bottom line: Our senators need to take this threat seriously and vow to do everything in their power to ensure that this harmful plan does not make it to the Senate floor.”
