FILE - President Joe Biden delivers the State of the Union address to a joint session of Congress at the U.S. Capitol, Feb. 7, 2023, in Washington, as Vice President Kamala Harris and House Speaker Kevin McCarthy of Calif., listen. Biden's upcoming budget proposal aims to trim deficits by nearly $3 trillion over the next decade. That's according to an administration official who insisted on anonymity to discuss the figures being released Thursday. The level of deficit reduction is significantly higher than the $2 trillion worth of deficit reduction that Biden had promised in his State of the Union address last month.

Biden’s plans to cut Medicare Advantage

President Joe Biden said during his recent State of the Union speech that Republicans had a proposal to cut entitlement programs. When he said that, Republicans rose in anger and heckled the President. What President Biden left out of his speech is that he has his own plan to cut a popular entitlement program, Medicare Advantage, because the program uses private companies to provide services that the Medicare program does not deliver.
