What House Republican leaders are doing this week is infuriating and it shows that their priorities are upside down.
This week Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) is leading an effort to impose even more ruthless cuts immediately to critical domestic programs. Under the plan, unemployment benefits would be cut off until applicants are nearly broke and millions of working families would be denied a child tax credit.
They’re cutting these programs to pay for tax breaks for millionaires. As House leaders cut $7.8 billion in funding for the child tax credit, they’re putting the same amount into a new tax break for millionaires. It’s shameful.
The House will vote on the Ryan Budget Reconciliation package soon. Fill out the form to stop it.
