Paulsen, Lewis tout GOP tax plan as good deal for Minnesota

Printer-friendly version

Nan Madden, director of the Minnesota Budget Project, said she’s worried that adding to the deficit would eventually put pressure on lawmakers to cut Medicaid, a contentious provision of Republicans’ failed efforts to repeal and replace the Affordable Care Act. Her organization is working with the Minnesota Council of Nonprofits to write a letter of concern to the state’s congressional delegation, though they’re specifically urging Paulsen not to offset the tax cuts by slashing Medicaid and other programs for low-income people.

“We think every member of our delegation has an important decision to make, but knowing that this bill comes first for a vote in the Ways and Means Committee, that’s a reason for a particular focus on Paulsen,” Madden said.
