The newest bill offers $45B for opioid addiction fighting (subject to future approval by appropriators) while slashing over $800B from Medicaid. This cynical move to secure support from two Senators whose states are being ravaged by the addiction epidemic will have devastating consequences for many now receiving treatment support for the first time.” – Don Flattery
