Tom Price, R-Ga., heads to a meeting of House Republicans on Capitol Hill in Washington. Now that President Donald Trump has taken office, Republicans will have the opportunity to do something they have desired for years: overhaul Medicaid, the program that provides health care to millions of lower-income Americans and those with disabilities. Republicans have argued that states have little incentive to keep expenses under control because no state pays more than half the total cost. Ryan and Trump’s pick for secretary of health and human services, Price, want to switch to block grants.
