Tom Perriello Breaks Down the Romney-Ryan Budget (Blackboard Style)


This video lays out how much the Romney-Ryan would cost working families in Virginia. Here are just a few of examples based on a joint study by ProgressVA and Center for American Progress:

  • $2,000= Average tax hike to pay for tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires
  • $5,600=  Steeper tuition costs due to cuts in Pell Grants
  • $11,000= Higher Medicare costs after turning the system into a voucher program
  • 1,375,000= Women who would lose access to free medical screenings by repealing the Affordable Care Act
  • 66,000= Young adults who would lose their parents’ health insurance coverage by repealing the Affordable Care Act
