State-by-State Impact of Federal Budget Debate

The AFL-CIO has produced an easy-to-read guide on the federal budget debate. You can look up how your state will be impacted by potential cuts.

The page on Oregon is extensive. We leaqrn from it that:

• 712,216 Oregonians receive monthly Social Security checks, including 97,786 workers with disabilities and 43,537 children.
• 596,663 Oregonians get their health care coverage from Medicare.
• 564,470 Oregonians get their health care coverage from Medicaid, including 287,903 children and 55,714 seniors.

and much more.

There is clearly a need to act now.
