Ellison holds phone Town Hall Friday before House budget vote

Congressman Keith Ellison says he’ll hold a telephone Town Hall Friday morning to get input before the House holds a vote on the federal budget.

You can register online for the 11:30 a.m. Central Time call.

Ellison obviously already has his own thoughts on the bill, as he says in his announcement about the call:

“I am deeply concerned that the House Republican budget does not invest in jobs or middle class families. Instead, their plan will end Medicare as we know it, make it harder for low-wage earners to afford health care, deny assistance for staples like milk for poor mothers and children, and make it harder for young people to afford to go to college.”

He says the House vote on the bill is scheduled for Friday afternoon.
