No cuts to Medicare and Medicaid to pay for tax giveaways for the 1%

Protect Medicaid and Medicare for seniorsLast year, activists and union members across the country joined together to stop Republicans who wanted to cut Medicaid and Medicare as part of the super committee process.

But now Republicans are back at it; threatening the well-being of millions of American women, families and seniors once again. Rep. Paul Ryan has proposed a new budget that would negate last summer's budget agreement and put Medicare and Medicaid back on the chopping block. Over a decade, the GOP's House-passed budget would cut $5.3 trillion from almost every domestic program; two-thirds of which would hit low-income people the hardest.

At the same time, it would protect tax breaks for the wealthiest Americans and corporations.

Don't let the well-being of millions of our nation's seniors and people with disabilities be undermined for the sake of continuing tax breaks for the 1% of Americans and Big Oil. Sign up to fight back against irresponsible healthcare cuts →
