Viewpoint: The House Republican Budget and Its Effect on Seniors

The House Budget Resolution for Fiscal Year 2015, H. Con. Res. 96, was introduced by Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan (R-WI) on April 4, 2014.  The budget proposes drastic cuts in federal spending for programs of importance to most low- and middle-income Americans while proposing tax breaks to benefit the very wealthy and large profitable corporations.  This paper summarizes some of the key proposals in the House Republican FY 2015 budget that would affect seniors and people with disabilities who rely on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security.
