The Children’s Defense Fund published an article
on House Budget Committee Chairman Paul Ryan’s FY 2013 House Budget Resolution proposal. According to the article, about half of the cuts in the proposed budget ($2.5 trillion) are from health care programs, which include developing Medicaid as a block grant, repealing the ACA, and creating a voucher system for Medicare. CDF urges individuals take action to contact
state senators and representatives and request that children are made a top priority in the budget discussions.
