The budget Paul Ryan proposed (“No Billionaire Left Behind”) included more tax breaks for the very wealthy, cuts in food assistance for the poor, more than $800 billion in cuts to Medicaid for low income families and elders, scrapping Medicare and replacing it with vouchers to help low income seniors purchase insurance on the private market. Ryan proposed an end to the Affordable Care Act before it really got started. Ryan’s proposed budget would put pressure on funding for veterans' programs, housing and jobs programs, making the transition to civilian life even more difficult for returning vets. It would force further cuts in job training, education, and direct job creation programs, while continuing tax incentives for U.S. corporations to move jobs overseas. The Ryan proposals would cut spending for environmental protection, and continue billions of dollars in tax subsidies for oil and gas companies. At a time when runaway spending on defense contractors plays a major role in our total budget deficit, Ryan would increase military spending by $228 billion over ten years.
