House expected to consider two bills that would drastically cut federal spending

The House may soon consider two more bills (H.R. 3576 and H.R. 3580) in a package of ten bills to alter the federal budget process. Both bills would limit federal spending to levels similar to those in the House-passed budget resolution last year (known as the “Ryan Budget”) which would block grant the Medicaid program. These two bills would require large cuts in federal spending that would likely fall disproportionately on low-income people, would effectively require that all deficit reduction come from program cuts and none from revenues, and would make it easier to cut entitlement programs (Social Security, Medicaid and Medicare).
