President Obama held a roughly 75 minute budget talk yesterday with congressional leaders that ended with nothing agreed upon besides that fact that they would continue negotiations on Monday. President Obama has said he will have daily meetings with congressional leaders until a deal is reached. Both sides seem entrenched in their positions. Republicans refuse to consider tax increases while Democrats will not consider cuts to Medicaid, Medicare, and Social Security.
Leaders have until August 2nd to raise the debt limit, but a deal would need to be reached within 2 weeks to allow Congress time to pass it.
Take advantage of the ANCOR prepared action alert telling congressional leaders and the White House that Medicaid cuts need to be off the table. Medicaid cuts would pass the burden onto states at a time when they are already struggling. It also eliminates jobs when we need to be creating them, while talking away services from those who depend on them.
