Republicans Plan Elder Care Cuts

The Houston Chronicle published the following editorial on April 6, 2016: 

"Cutting the safety net: 

Republicans plan to reduce the federal government's contribution to health care. 

It's the time of year when we face, once again, the specter of Ebenezer Scrooge, that most parsimonious and black-hearted of, well, scrooges. This year, however, he has a modern counterpart whose heart may be even blacker: Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives, Paul Ryan, R-Wis. The speaker is offering up, once again, a budget plan that will deprive not only poor children but also the elderly and disabled of decent, accessible health care. If his plan for dismantling Medicaid and Medicare is successful, America's middle-class should be prepared to pay not only for their own health-care needs in old age, but also for the long-term care of grandma and grandpa, elderly mom and dad; for disabled children, brothers, sisters."  Read the full Houston Chronicle editorial here.
