Congressman Rehberg Finds $1.3 trillion in Savings

Congressman Denny Rehberg (R-MT) has proposed $1.3 trillion in cuts to the federal budget over ten years.  His solution?  Eliminate two key parts of the President’s Affordable Care Act.  In a letter Rehberg wrote to the deficit reduction “super committee,” he asks them to halt the Medicaid expansion and cut the health insurance tax credits.  A local Montana news station, KXLH, reports U.S. Senator Max Baucus’s (D-MT) office responded saying, “Max’s first choice is to cut bloated Pentagon spending and ask Wall Street to chip in before targeting Montana families who need to take their kids to the doctor.”
