House votes to condemn Trump Medicaid block grant policy

The House on Tuesday passed a resolution officially condemning the Trump administration’s new Medicaid block grant plan.

The non-binding resolution won’t have much practical effect. It passed on a mostly party line vote of 224-189 and will almost certainly see no time in the GOP-controlled Senate.

Rep. Kurt Schrader (D-Ore.) was the only Democrat to break with his party.

The controversial Medicaid plan will let states apply for a waiver to scale back spending by converting part of their Medicaid funding into a block grant.
