More costs of Obamacare kill

Center on Budget & Policy Priorities - Senators Cassidy and Graham’s bill to repeal the Affordable Care Act would deeply cut Medicaid by ending the ACA’s Medicaid expansion and converting the rest of Medicaid to a per capita cap.

The per capita cap alone would cut federal funding for seniors, people with disabilities, families with children, and pregnant women by an estimated $175 billion over ten years and more than $1 trillion over 20 years, while also making federal Medicaid funding far less responsive to need.

As a result, the Cassidy-Graham cap would likely result in millions of low-income seniors, people with disabilities, and children and families ending up uninsured or losing access to needed care.
