On Thursday, Rep. Don Young voted for the Ryan budget for the third year in a row. This bill is an attack on Alaska and Young should be ashamed that he voted for it.
The Ryan budget:
• Raises taxes on the middle class by an average of $2,000 per year.
• Cuts the Head Start program by $19 billion.
• Reduces Medicaid by $732 billion over 10 years.
• Decreases funding for veterans health care.
• Turns Medicare into a partially-funded voucher program.
