draft-Bush Cuts, Spitzer Cuts

I’ve been wondering what, if any,

New York’s Senators said the president’s health care cuts are different in substance and spirit than Eliot Spitzer’s proposed Health care cuts.

Schumer said he didn’t agree with all of Spitzer’s cuts, but declined to specify which ones.

Hillary singled out the president’s mulit-million-dollar cut to the Graduate Medical Education program as harmful to a program that keeps medical students heading to New York. But when I asked Hillary about Spitzer’s aim to cut the same program, she said “I don’t know.”
