10/3 – 10/5: Oppose Congressional Budget With Cuts To Medicare, Medicaid, Public Education & Social Safety Net
House Republicans have proposed a budget that dramatically cuts funding for Medicaid, Medicare, Meals on Wheels, and Social Security disability programs. If this budget is passed, middle and working-class Americans will suffer, especially older adults, children, and people with disabilities who depend on programs like Medicaid. The purpose of the House GOP’s drastic funding reductions? Funding Paul Ryan’s tax cuts, 99.6% of which would go to the wealthiest 1% of Americans.
