"Cutting $834 billion from the program would decimate the ability of Medicaid to provide home and community-based services to allow people with disabilities to live, learn, work and thrive in their communities; pre-natal care that ensures almost 50 percent of the children born in the US are born healthy; nursing home care for older Americans because Medicare does not provide for it; mental health and substance use disorder treatment; and preventive and basic health care for millions of individuals".
