Report: Health cuts in Ryan budget would approach $3 trillion

Ryan’s plan would repeal Obama’s healthcare law, including subsidies to help low-income people buy insurance and expanded Medicaid eligibility. It also would convert Medicaid into a block-grant program to the states. Those cuts, along with targeted Medicare reductions, would add up to $2.75 trillion over the next decade, according to Families USA.

The state-by-state totals correspond largely to states’ populations. California would take the biggest hit, at more than $300 billion, followed by Texas ($244 billion), New York ($210 billion) and Florida ($189 billion), according to Families USA.
