Trump’s sabotage of the working and middle classes is brazen. Here’s what his proposed budget would do:
• Cut $850 billion from Medicare
• Take $270 billion out of Medicaid
• Reduce Social Security spending by $30 billion
• Slash funding for student loan relief programs, the Center for Disease Control and Prevention, the Department of Education, eliminates some HUD affordable housing programs, and more
Meanwhile, defense spending stays the same. ICE’s budget is going up by almost 25%. He’s giving his quixotic border wall another $2 billion. And Amazon will still pay $0 in federal taxes.
Trump won’t get away with it if we lift our collective voices loud and clear. Together, we’ll stop him today, and in November too.
