[Excerpt] On behalf of the AFL-CIO, I urge you to oppose the reconciliation bill that will be considered by the Ways and Means Committee pursuant to the House-passed Ryan budget (H.Con.Res. 112). The bill would undermine the financial security of millions of working families by imposing substantial tax penalties on people benefitting from health care premium subsidies, denying the Child Tax Credit to millions of families, and eliminating the Social Services Block Grant (SSBG). You should reject this legislation because it demands sacrifice from families of modest means while refusing to ask the wealthy to pay their fair share.
