This article reports on the decrease in the budget for Medicaid and Medicare in the U.S. in October 2005. Against the odds, Senate Finance Committee Chairman Sen. Chuck Grassley forged a legislative package at the last minute last week moving cuts to Medicaid and Medicare one step closer to realization. Hence, the Senate Finance Committee is slated to vote on the budget reconciliation bill containing the cuts before forwarding it to the Senate Budget Committee, which is expected to vote on it.
