Today’s coverage of the “What Would You Cut?” ad campaign in Iowa and New Hampshire.
The weeklong television ad seeks to highlight the House budget’s cuts to children’s programs, including $1.4 trillion in cuts to Medicaid that would result from repealing the healthcare reform expansion and turning the program into a block grant. The ad mentions cuts to school nutrition, pre-school programs and college loans for students.
If you controlled the government’s purse strings, would you cut school nutrition programs or eliminate tax breaks for America’s millionaires and billionaires?
This is a question asked in a new TV ad campaign sponsored by Vote Kids, a children’s advocacy group. The ads are airing in Iowa and New Hampshire this week as Republican presidential candidates prepare to open their bids for their party’s nomination.
