California Healthline: Report: ACA Repeal, Medicaid Block Grants Would Curb Spending

A Republican proposal to repeal the Affordable Care Act and transform Medicaid into a block grant system would reduce federal spending by $1.7 trillion between 2013 and 2022, according to an analysis released Tuesday by the Kaiser Family Foundation, Kaiser Health News‘ “Capsules” reports.

About the Plan

The plan to repeal the ACA and alter Medicaid is included in Republican vice presidential nominee and House Budget Committee Chair Paul Ryan’s (R-Wis.) House-approved fiscal year 2013 budget proposal.

Ryan’s running mate, GOP presidential nominee Mitt Romney, has backed a similar proposal, which his campaign estimates would reduce federal spending by $100 billion annually beginning in 2013 (Galewitz, “Capsules,” Kaiser Health News, 10/23).
