With the party of Trump in power, there's no rest for the weary on the healthcare and broader domestic spending front.
The House of Representatives is expected to vote on Thursday on a ruinous Paul Ryan-crafted budget resolution that would cut $5 trillion in domestic spending over ten years, including $1.5 trillion from Medicaid, $500 million from Medicare, and savage chunks out of food stamps, tax credits for the working poor, and a host of other vital programs.
At the same time, federal funding for the vital Children's Health Insurance Program (CHIP) and community health centers(CHCs) expired on Sept. 30, despite years of bipartisan support. Bills to belatedly fund both are pending but their fate remains uncertain -- and may be held hostage to Republican priorities. CHIP insures 9 million American children; CHC's serve about 27 million.
Please call your Congressional rep and tell him to vote no on the Ryan budget resolution while expediting funding renewal for CHIP and CHCs
