What Trump’s Medicaid Plan Would Mean for People with Disabilities

During his campaign for president, Donald Trump openly mocked people with disabilities. Now, he and his allies in Congress are threatening to slash Medicaid—a program on which 15 million people with disabilities rely for basic living standards. It’s time to tell President Trump and Congress: hands off Medicaid.
