A message from AAUW Action Network: Tell Congress: Don't Build a Budget on the Backs of America's Families
Early next week, the House is expected to vote on Rep. Paul Ryan's (R-WI) proposed budget for fiscal year 2012. This plan, which has already passed out of committee, slashes nearly every program which invests in everyday Americans' education, employment opportunities, health care, and housing – while cutting corporate tax rates by ten percent. Ryan's proposal hacks away at Medicaid and Medicare, Pell grants and federal student loans, and eliminates numerous other investments in our country's long-term economic security and strength.This budget is built on the backs of America's families, robbing seniors, students, and workers in the name of helping America's corporations get richer. AAUW unequivocally opposes Ryan's plan, which relies on flawed math and assumptions, and will do real and lasting harm to families, workers, and retirees.
