Senator Tom Harkin (D-IA) today joined Senators Charles E. Schumer (D-NY), Barbara Mikulski (D-MD) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA) in a news conference to say that the House Republicans' plan known as "Cut, Cap and Balance" should be called the "Cut, Cap, and Kill Medicare" Act. The U.S. House passed the measure last night on a largely party line vote. The legislation cuts Medicare and Social Security beyond the budget proposed by Congressman Paul Ryan, all while protecting tax breaks for millionaires, billionaires and special interests.
