GOP Wants to Improve Indian HealthcareMay 30, 2017 |
Congressional Republicans believe they can improve Indian Health Service – and the first step is to cut money from the already underfunded IHS budget.
IHS provides primary health care for the majority of Native Americans and Alaskan Natives.
“For years, the Indian Health Service has fallen short in providing high quality medical care throughout Indian Country,” Sen. John Barrasso (R-Wyoming) said. “The long history of failures at IHS are unacceptable and will not be tolerated.”
