The Wisconsin congressman is calling for states to take over the Medicaid program. At the same time, Ryan’s budget would reduce projected federal spending on Medicaid by about $800 billion over 10 years, shrinking the program as a share of the overall national economy.

Franken made a stop today at St. Benedict’s Senior Community.
