Fiscal Year 2018 Appropriations
Republicans in the Senate are currently trying to push through partisan healthcare legislation by Sens. Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham. The Cassidy-Graham bill would eliminate the expansion of Medicaid, which has extended coverage to 11 million low-income adults, and instead block grant the Medicaid program.
