Congressional leaders' new budget is full of harmful cuts that would hurt older Americans. Medicaid would be slashed and seniors could lose access to food assistance programs. Perhaps worst of all, it would cut almost $500 billion from Medicare and open the door to turning it into a voucher program.
It's simply not right that Washington wants to put at risk the earned benefits that seniors rely on to survive. We need to tell them that it's unacceptable to cut seniors' benefits, and that older Americans won't stand for it.
