Republican Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins is supporting her party's budget plan that passed earlier this month in the U-S House. Proponents believe that plan would help control the federal deficit. It has drawn criticism for proposals to cut spending and revamp social programs including Medicare. But Jenkins believes those criticisms are overblown. While meeting with some of her 2nd District constituents in Topeka today (MON), Jenkins said any Medicare changes would not affect Americans age 55 or older.
Jenkins’s appearance in Topeka today (MON) was the first of four scheduled during her current three-day tour of the 2nd District.
