Krugman Hits Romney on Medicaid

Medicare has gotten most of the attention, but the GOP's plans to hurt Medicaid must less so, but here's Paul Krugman with a corrective, in tomorrow's column.
If he wins, Medicaid — which now covers more than 50 million Americans, and which President Obama would expand further as part of his health reform — will face savage cuts. Estimates suggest that a Romney victory would deny health insurance to about 45 million people who would have coverage if he lost, with two-thirds of that difference due to the assault on Medicaid.
So this election is, to an important degree, really about Medicaid. And this, in turn, means that you need to know something more about the program.
