The federal budget process offers the next chance for conservatives to gut Medicaid, Medicare and the Affordable Care Act. The process of adopting a budget is starting now. Join the national call-in days (September 14 and 15): Click here NOW to call your Representative and tell them to reject a budget and tax plan that cuts health care while giving massive tax breaks to the rich and big corporations.

Background: The House Budget Committee has adopted a budget resolution that makes major cuts in Medicaid and other social service programs, while adopting tax cuts for the wealthy. The full House of Representatives is likely to vote on this budget resolution soon. Detailed discussions of the budget issue are available on the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities website here.
