Democrats claim without evidence that people will die if Medicaid is reduced

NY Times:

For Millions, Life Without Medicaid Services Is No Option

Supplemental benefits for millions of recipients, many of them disabled, would be at risk under Republican proposals to repeal the Affordable Care Act.
To make this claim you would need a study to determine whether mortality rates have dramatically changed since Obamacare expanded Medicaid.  I have not seen any such study and I doubt it has made a significant difference.  At any rate, the GOP plan does not cut Medicaid, it merely cuts the growth in expenditures.  

One of the scams Democrats have pulled is to have built-in increases in expenditures for budgeting purposes and then they lie when those increases are reduced and claim that the budget has been cut.  It is a fraudulent practice that has led to runaway spending.
