The budget fight in Washington leads to another protest by social security workers here in Lansing today.
The American Federation of Government Employees Social Security workers will be having a picket at the Lansing Social Security Office.
Workers say the plan by house Republicans would cut $1.7 billion dollars from the Social Security Administration's budget, and that would lead to layoffs and furloughs.
Under the conditions, there would also be a longer wait for social security benefits and disability claims.
The picket runs from noon to one outside of the Lansing Social Security Office.
