Medicaid Funding Slashed In U.S. Territories NPR (“territories” is a euphemism for colonies)

All five of the U.S. territories affected [Puerto Rico, Guam, American Samoa, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and the North Mariana Islands] — collectively home to more than 3 million Americans — are now desperately trying to figure out how to keep Medicaid running with only a fraction of the money they’ve had for the last several years. If Congress doesn’t increase the amount of designated money by the end of the year, the U.S. Virgin Islands and Guam say they would need to cut their Medicaid rolls in half; Puerto Rico says it would need to cut back dental and prescription drug services.
