Ryan budget cuts hurt seniors
Paul Ryan’s 2015 budget cuts Medicaid by more than a quarter and shifts costs onto already cash-strapped states by forcing them to provide funding or cut benefits.
This would be especially devastating to older Americans and their families as Medicaid is currently the largest provider of long-term care coverage for seniors.
While Congressman Ryan claims cuts are necessary to reduce the deficit, he actually uses the “savings” for tax breaks for millionaires and corporations.
The Ryan budget clearly chooses tax breaks for the wealthy and corporations over nursing home care for millions of seniors.
