The article considers the opposition of legislators to a plan by U.S. President George W. Bush to transfer Medicaid costs to the states without congressional oversight. This bizarre state of affairs is a product of Medicaid's financing arrangements in which there is no fixed limit to the amount of money that the federal government contributes to each state's Medicaid program. A budget that trims $500,000 from state Medicaid expenditures will cause a loss in state revenue.
