Cuts for Us; Tax Breaks for the Wealthy

The budget will lead to cuts of nearly $500 billion from Medicare and more than $1 trillion from Medicaid over the next 10 years. It paves the way for massive tax breaks for the rich. It will add $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit.

“The government’s disregard for citizens, particularly older Americans, is palpable in this budget. Gutting much-needed safety nets for average Americans so that billionaires and corporations can line their pockets is beyond cruel,” said Richard Fiesta, executive director of the Alliance.

With the unveiling of the Republican tax bill set for November 1, and a U.S. House vote that could happen as early as November 13, the time to call your representative is now.

Sign up here to be part of the Alliance’s call in day on November 2 and we will send you talking points and a reminder to make your voice hear.

The Republican Tax bill is bad for working families. It will:

●     Slash Medicaid and Medicare, which are essential for retirees and working Americans;

●     Will add $1.5 trillion to the federal deficit.

●     Will only benefit wealthy Americans.

So far, all votes have been very close. We can still win if we fight!
