TODAY: Courage for America’s Bus Tour Hosts Press Conference in Columbus To Demand Rep. Jordan Promise To “Back Off Our Benefits”

Advocates Ramp Up Pressure on MAGA Republicans Ahead of Potential Default Crisis and McCarthy’s 100th Day

COLUMBUS, OH  — Today (4/14) at 10 AM ET, as part of its nationwide “Back Off Our Benefits” bus tour, Courage for America will host a press conference with local advocates in Columbus at Genoa Park to call on Representative Jordan to promise his constituents that he will not cut essential programs that Americans rely on — including Social Security, Medicare, and veterans’ benefits.

Constituents of Rep. Jordan and Innovation Ohio will join Courage for America council members and allies to shine a light on how MAGA lawmakers’ political games are pushing the country toward a default crisis at the expense of American seniors, veterans, and children.
