Critical issues are at stake in current budget negotiations. There are very serious threats to members, the children they serve and our nation as a whole – including potentially devastating cuts to education and Medicaid, and a possible move to tax healthcare benefits (by repealing the tax exclusion for employer-provided health care).
We are concerned about the impact on students, working families, the elderly and others in our nation with the greatest needs. The outcome will show whether we as a nation are going to make the investments necessary to ensure a strong nation for the 21st century.
Please go to NEA’s Legislative Action Center to send a message to Congress urging that any budget deal protect children and the middle class.
