The article reports on the provision filed by U.S. Representative Rahm Emanuel and Senatorial Majority Whip Dick Durbin to stop the Bush administration from cutting Medicaid payments to hospitals for one year in the U.S. They are concerned about Cook County Stroger Hospital, a facility made famous by the NBC-TV program, ER. The bill extends a program for senior citizens in Wisconsin and blocked cuts to a program that pays for medical education.
