Trump's budget encounters strong Mass. backlash


Deep cuts proposed by President Donald Trump to federal Medicaid and research spending in his $4.1 trillion budget plan drew bipartisan pushback in Boston on Tuesday over concerns that the plan could strain thinly stretched state tax dollars and cut off a key line of support for the life sciences and health sectors. Trump, who as a candidate pledged to protect Medicaid, sent Congress a fully-developed budget bill that would slow the growth of federal support for Medicaid by $610 billion over the next decade.
