The time is NOW to do something. We can’t let this agenda come to fruition. We MUST get involved in politics. The only voice we have is through politics. Get involved locally now!

How do you get involved with local politics? Read this step by step guide.

On Monday, President Trump released part of his 2018 budget proposal. More information is expected on Tuesday, March 26, 2017.

The biggest cuts were to the arts, scientific research, and foreign aid.

The biggest cut in the proposal is something that will affect me and my child tremendously, especially as I age is…. Medicaid.

MEDICAID

Medicaid helps about 77 million low-income people afford medical care. The American Health Care Act, which recently passed the House, proposed slashing benefits by $880 billion over 10 years. During the campaign, Trump said he wouldn’t cut these benefits, but he has since indicated otherwise.

FOODSTAMPS

Deep cuts, let us think about friends and family members dependent on food stamps who are elderly, disabled or out of work who need food stamps to eat, to get by, to feed their children and survive.
