Today Dr. Raul Ruiz (D-Palm Desert) released the following statement on the proposed cuts to Medicare and Social Security included in the President's budget:

"I was disappointed that the President's budget released today included cuts to Medicare and Social Security. Putting the burden of the national deficit on the backs of our seniors is wrong, and I will stand with our seniors to oppose any effort from either political party that would cut their hard-earned benefits and force them to pay even more out-of-pocket for health care. At a time when many seniors are barely making ends meet, we should be working in a bipartisan way to responsibly reduce the deficit and strengthen Medicare and Social Security, and I am committed to working with both political parties toward that end."
