Medicare Privatization Among Dangerous Cuts in House Republicans' 2016 Budget Proposal

In response to the House Republicans' 2016 budget proposal, AFL-CIO Communications Director Eric Hauser released the following statement:

“The deep cuts in this proposal – which start with privatizing Medicare – add to the already open wounds of our struggling economy. As quick as Republicans’ 180 during the campaign season to a sudden concern for the plight of working people, they’re back to showing their true colors.

Poking working people with a hot stick isn’t conservative economic leadership, its politics as usual. Thankfully there’s almost zero chance their dangerous proposals reach the American people in the next two years – and working people will make sure they never do.”
