WASHINGTON, DC – House Majority Leader Steny H. Hoyer and Speaker Nancy Pelosi released the following joint statement announcing a vote on a resolution to disapprove of the Trump Administration’s proposed Medicaid block grant plan next Thursday, February 6:

“On Thursday, the House will consider a resolution to disapprove of President Trump’s proposed cuts to Medicaid services through his new illegal block-grant scheme. Congress has a responsibility to protect Medicaid beneficiaries from the harm that would be caused by this new guidance. The goal of this new waiver is clear: reduce access to health care for millions of low-income Americans, including access to affordable prescription drugs. The Democratic-led House will not allow this challenge to health care access in our country to go unanswered.”
