In response to the Ryan Republican Budget, Jeff Zients, Acting Director of the Office of Management and Budget, will be answering your questions about the President’s balanced approach during a session of White House Office Hours on Twitter. The House budget once again fails the test of balance, fairness, and shared responsibility.  It would shower the wealthiest few Americans with an average tax cut of at least $150,000, while preserving taxpayer giveaways to oil companies and breaks for Wall Street hedge fund managers.

The President’s approach asks the wealthiest to pay their fair share, makes tough cuts to programs we can’t afford, and strengthens Medicare with reforms that would reduce overpayments to drug companies, improve the quality of care, and protect Medicare’s commitment to America’s seniors.
