The House of Representatives just passed a budget plan for FY 2015 drafted by Paul Ryan, Chair of the House Budget Committee. It is called "The Path to Prosperity," but only a select few get to go down that road. The Ryan budget demands sacrifice from nearly everyone in order to to give new multi-billion dollar tax breaks to millionaires and big corporations. It's not the law of the land now. But "The Path to Prosperity" could be our future if its rhetoric about expanding opportunity and strengthening the safety net is not countered with the truth about what the budget actually does. Join us to uncover the truth about the budget, including concrete estimates of the impacts on health care, nutrition, housing,education, and more.
