The article reports on criticisms against a proposal announced on June 13, 2009 by the administration of U.S. President Barack Obama regarding the removal of $313 billion from Medicare and Medicaid over 10 years to help fund healthcare reform. A memo was sent by the American Hospital Association (AHA) on June 16 to all of its state associations to encourage them to increase efforts to fight the proposal. Some legislators are also not in favor of the proposed cuts.
