Received this e-mail today from State Senator, Dr. Barbara Bollier’s (D. KS) U.S. Senate campaign:
Have you heard about the proposed cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid?
Millions of Americans rely on these programs to pay for the life-saving care they need and support themselves, yet the White House is proposing a budget recently that would slash trillions of dollars from these essential programs.
These programs not only save lives, but they help keep rural hospitals open and support working families across our state. As a doctor, I know what’s at stake — when so many already struggle to pay for the rising costs of healthcare in America and struggle to put food on the table, we shouldn’t make it any harder.
We can’t rely on Mitch McConnell and the Republican-controlled Senate to protect these programs, so it’s up to us to make sure this budget doesn’t come to fruition.
American families can’t afford these cuts.
Dr. Barbara Bollier
