Why Not

I am a husband, father, son, brother, uncle and friend. I believe in sharing my talents and experiences by giving back to the community by giving my time to coaching, church and especially to the disability community. I truly believe that all men and women are created equally.

Comparison of Budget Plans

Medicaid:
Obama: Preserve program as it is now but reduce funding by $100 billion over the next 10 years by finding efficiencies.

Ryan: Turn into a block grant program, providing a lump sum of federal money to states, and reduce funding by $1.4 trillion over the next 10 years.


Medicare:
Obama: Preserve program as it is now but reduce growth in funding by using Medicare’s purchasing power to reduce drug and other costs.

Ryan: Turn into a voucher system where people would get an as-yet-undetermined amount of money to buy private health insurance.


Domestic Discretionary Spending:
This spending includes funding for IDEA, developmental disabilities councils such as the Wisconsin Board for People with Developmental Disabilities (BPDD), protection and advocacy agencies such as Disability Rights Wisconsin, supported employment, supportive housing, Head Start, transportation, community health centers, and much more.

Obama: Reduce funding by $600 billion over the next 10 years, including $400 billion already identified in 2012 budget proposal.

Ryan: Reduce funding by $1.6 trillion over the next 10 years, eliminating almost all programs.


Military Spending:
Obama: Reduce funding by $400 billion over next 12 years.
