AFSCME Supports the Murray Budget

Dear Sisters and Brothers,

Budgets are about priorities and choices. After three years of repackaging the same hurtful policies, we all already knew what Paul Ryan’s budget priorities would be: End Medicare and Medicaid as we know them; force deep cuts to Social Security and make sure the cuts from “sequestration” are made permanent.

But members of Congress don’t have to make those false choices that only reduce the deficit by increasing the burden on working families. Instead, they can support a budget that creates real conditions for job creation, economic growth and prosperity for all of us—not just the super-rich and wealthy corporations. That’s exactly what’s contained in Senate Budget Chairwoman Patty Murray’s Budget.

The choice between the Murray Senate Budget and the Ryan House Budget couldn’t be more clear:

As you can see, the Murray Budget preserves and protects Medicare so it is strong for our seniors today and stronger for future generations. The Ryan Budget would raise the retirement age for Medicare and turn the program into a voucher system to pay insurance companies, increasing out-of-pocket costs by thousands of dollars a year.
