cbo_oh_ohWe discuss the new CBO findings that the House healthcare bill will result in 23 million losing coverage, Medicaid cuts, and UW funding.

STATEWIDE - We review the new Congressional Budget Office’s (CBO) findings that the House healthcare bill will result in 23 million losing their health coverage and potentially destabilize the Wisconsin health insurance market. We also look at the prospects for the House plan in the Senate.

We welcome Ken Taylor, the Executive Director of the Wisconsin Council on Children and Families, to analyze President Trump’s budget and its repercussions for Wisconsin families. We look closer at Medicaid cuts in Trump’s budget and discuss how Trump’s budget is even upsetting Republican members of Congress.

We close with a discussion of GOP plans to start a conservative “think tank” at the University of Wisconsin and Democratic efforts in the Joint Finance Committee to support state funding for two years of free college education.
