Not New, Not Improved - Stand Against Paul Ryan's Budget

Rep. Paul Ryan and the Republican leadership are demanding outrageously low tax rates for Wall Street and the wealthiest 2% of Americans - and they want to pay for them by voucherizing Medicare, cutting Medicaid benefits, slashing federal pensions and endangering the economic security of older Americans on many levels.

I stand against the Ryan Republican budget plan.

There are reasonable ways to balance our budget, and the Ryan Republican budget plan is not even close. We can’t ask seniors and the middle class to give more while corporate America gets more handouts and more tax incentives to send jobs overseas.

It is absolutely necessary that we protect Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security from benefit cuts. The Ryan Republican budget puts these programs in serious jeopardy and must be stopped.
