OFF-KILTER with Rebecca Vallas

May 10, 2017

President Trump released his first budget, which proposes dramatic cuts to nutrition, housing, job training, legal services, and more. Meanwhile, Republicans have declared war on a critical tool for enforcing legal rights and protections: the class action lawsuit. Sharon Dietrich, a longtime legal aid lawyer and class action litigator, joins to unpack what these proposals would mean for access to justice. Next up, the latest shoe to drop in the GOP’s efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act was a letter quietly sent to governors that does not bode well for the future of Medicaid. But first, Harry Stein, the Center for American Progress’s beloved budget guru, joins Rebecca and Jeremy to walk through the winners and losers of Trump’s budget.
