Event to give a Voting Scorecard to Congressman Mike Fitzpatrick
The Penn Action group of Progressive activists in Bucks County had a great day at the Levittown Post Office today. The rain stopped and we had a good turnout, and a lot of drive by traffic.
We were working with the National week of action on giving “Scorecard” information to the people on how our Congressman had voted on issues that are important to us – the Middle Class and the rest of the 99%.
We are very concerned about the proposed Ryan Budget that the Republicans are promoting that will destroy the safety nets that are now in place for people with Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security.
Many people think that Medicaid is for poor single mothers, and other types of families. We believe that this is an important need in our society.
However, most families are touched by Medicaid when a family member runs out of money and needs services as they need to live in a skilled nursing facility. This is also a Middle Class issue.
