Tell Your Representative: Oppose the Ryan Medicare-Killing Budget!
House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan unveiled a Republican budget on April Fools’ Day that once again proposes privatizing Medicare and turning it into a voucher system, while lowering tax rates on the wealthy and corporations.
Tell your representative not to even think about supporting this budget right now by clicking here.
The newest incarnation of the Ryan budget asks seniors to pay more for preventive health services and prescriptions. The plan once again proposes giving seniors a coupon to pay for Medicare — which is just a clever way to say “cut benefits and shift costs to retirees.”
Tell your representative the Ryan budget is wrong for seniors and wrong for working families.
