How Proposed Budget Cuts Impact Women
Join Celeste and Cecil, and their guest, Tim Casey of the Women's Legal Education and Defense Fund, in a discussion on how the proposed federal budget cuts will impact women.
Last week the New York Times reported : "President Obama stepped up pressure on Congressional Republicans on Tuesday to agree to a broad deficit-cutting deal, pledging to put popular entitlement programs like Medicare on the table in return for Republican acquiescence to some higher taxes."
Responding to the President's proposals Casey, a senior staff attorney at Legal Momentum, said : "Many of the proposed cuts are most devastating to communities least able to afford them: women and families hardest hit during the economic downturn, including single parent families, pregnant women, and children."
