Lawmakers largely spared Medicaid and Medicare in the debt deal signed by President Barack Obama Tuesday. But activists say health programs aren’t yet out of the woods, and low-income children may be at risk. An initial cap on discretionary spending, expected to save $917 billion over 10 years, does not include cuts to the government’s health insurance programs. But lawmakers punted another $1.2 trillion in savings to a bipartisan “super committee” to figure out. The 12-member committee can pass any cuts members see fit, including reductions in health spending.
