Congressional Democrats are sounding the alarm on cuts to Medicare and Medicaid in the GOP budget (which the House will vote on tomorrow) to try to shoot the legislation down. But these cuts are not detailed in GOP budget documents that have been released to the public, per Politico.

What Democrats are saying: "If you thought ... we finally beat back [Trumpcare] ... you are dead wrong," Sen. Bernie Sanders said. "My major fear is that ... the Republicans just might be able to slip through the most horrific and destructive budget."

The GOP budget cuts $5 trillion from social programs for education, health care and child care over the next 10 years, including $1 trillion from Medicaid and nearly $500 billion from Medicare, per a Democratic report obtained by Politico.

Chart: Danielle Alberti/Axios

By any standard, no matter how you look at it, the U.S. is losing its war against the coronavirus.

Why it matters: The pandemic is not an abstraction, and it is not something that’s simmering in the background. It is an ongoing emergency ravaging nearly the entire country, with a loss of life equivalent to a Sept. 11 every three days — for four months and counting.

President Trump on Friday evening commuted the sentence of his longtime associate Roger Stone, according to two senior administration officials. Stone in February was sentenced to 40 months in prison for crimes including obstruction, witness tampering and making false statements to Congress.

Why it matters: The controversial move brings an abrupt end to the possibility of Stone spending time behind bars. He had been scheduled to report to prison on July 14.
