How We Can & Why We Must Stave Off The Assaults On Medicare,
Medicaid, Social Security & Public Assistance

Sixteen years ago Pres. Clinton and a bi-partisan Congress replaced Aid To Families With Dependent Children(AFDC) with Temporary Assistance for Needy Families (TANF) which has proven to be a disaster for poor parents and children, even more so in the midst of recession and economic downturn. The shredding of the safety net began with AFDC and is expanding with proposals to cut, to privatize, to block grant or set up vouchers for Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Both political parties seem willing to sacrifice key elements of these programs at the altar of the budget deficit.
