MADISON– Today “Mr. Wall Street” Paul Ryan debuted his budget proposal, which slashes more than $6.2 trillion in spending over the next decade.
Ryan’s so-called “reforms” would dismantle Medicare for Wisconsin’s seniors, turning it into an inadequate voucher system to purchase health insurance in a broken marketplace that has seen record profits while denying care and benefits, and would convert Medicaid into a block grant program that would allow Scott Walker to eliminate health care programs for thousands of working families, small business owners and farmers.
“We know that Sean Duffy is struggling lately with his six-figure salary and gold-plated federal health care benefits,” Democratic Party of Wisconsin Chair Mike Tate said Tuesday. “Hopefully he can look within his heart and reject Paul Ryan’s draconian budget that endangers social safety net programs for the families of Northern and Central Wisconsin.”
