Letter to Washington State Legislators

Dear Legislators, As you are well aware, an unexpected spike in the cost of medical care poses a direct threat to future state budgets. This year’s $1.2 billion budget shortfall could look paltry in comparison to future deficits if out-of-control health spending is not addressed. I write on behalf of nearly 300,000 members and supporters of Citizens for a Sound Economy Foundation (CSE Foundation) to urge you to address Medicaid costs and balance the state budget through comprehensive reform, not piecemeal price caps and regulations.

Tax Fact #32: White House Drastically Understates Cost of Medicare Reform Proposal

Last month, President Clinton announced his plan for "reforming" Medicare, comprised mainly of transferring more tax dollars from the U.S. Treasury and expanding Medicare to include a prescription drug benefit. The administration, however, apparently understated its cost estimates to deflect criticism of the plan. Medicare already costs $210 billion annually, and is projected to cost nearly $500 billion in ten years (without adding any new benefits).
