A budget unfriendly to Bellevue

I met Hilary and Chuck today -- basically, they held a 30 minute press conference discussing Bush's new budget and how it impacts health care funding. The budget eliminates $70 billion in Medicare and Medicaid funding.

Here is an excerpt from a NY1 article

“To this president there are only two priorities as this budget shows: funding the war and cutting taxes for the very wealthy,” said Schumer. The middle class and those that hope to be middle class are left behind.”
