Congress: Don't make shortsighted cuts to Medicare and Medicaid #default

As a registered nurse who provides care to seniors at a community-based clinic, SEIU 1199UHE member Linda Bock has seen the devastating effect healthcare cuts can have on her senior patients.

She has seen the grief and pain suffered by patients and their families who delayed care because they could not afford the cost of the prescribed medication for the duration of the time required to improve their health outcomes.

Irresponsible cuts to Medicare and Medicaid could be right around the corner in the next budget deal. We can't let the well-being of millions of our nation's seniors be undermined for the sake of continuing tax breaks for the 1% of Americans and Big Oil.
