Budget Q&A

Health care, education

March 5, 2014

  •  Did the Administration consider eliminating ineffective and duplicative pre-school programs before proposing a massive new one? 
  • Spending on Medicare, Medicaid and other health programs is expected to double over the next 10 years. This is not sustainable. Has the Administration any idea how to actually make the programs sustainable or any desire to?  

These are questions U.S. Senator Mike Enzi, R-Wyo. asked Sylvia Mathews Burwell, Director of the Office of Management and Budget about the Administration’s FY2015 budget request. The exchange took place at a March 5 Senate Budget Committee hearing. To view the six-minute video, click here.
