The Senate's GOP Obamacare repeal bill would slash federal Medicaid spending by 35 percent in two decades, a new analysis reportedly shows.

The Congressional Budget Office earlier this week estimated the Senate proposal would cut federal Medical spending by $772 billion over a 10-year period.

But Democrats asked for a separate analysis, arguing stricter spending limits would only take effect toward the end of that 10-year window, Politico reported.

The new analysis shows the federal Medicaid outlay drop-off grows in the second decade of a 20-year window because of the stricter limits Republicans want to enact starting in 2025 to control the program's spending growth, Politico reported.

The analysis did not say how much of a monetary savings that would represent for the government, the Washington Examiner reported, adding some experts have said less federal funding could lead to more costs for states and changes in Medicaid eligibility to compensate.
