Donald Trump recently proposed a federal budget that steals essential services from millions of people to pay for the massive tax cut he just gave to the very wealthy and corporations.
When Trump forced his tax scam through in December, we knew it would worsen economic inequality, funneling even more money to the very top while leaving millions of people behind. That’s why so many of you took action and spoke out against it.
And now we’re seeing the other side of that coin. To pay for the tax scam, Trump is planning to slash critical services millions of people rely on every day.
Don’t let it happen. Tell Congress not to accept this brutal budget that takes from low-income people to line the pockets of the wealthy few:
Here are just a few of the heartless cuts proposed in Trump’s budget:
- $1.8 trillion from Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and more — kicking millions of seniors, children, and people with disabilities off their healthcare;
- $203 billion from student loans, making it a lot tougher for students to afford college;
- $215 billion from food stamps, hurting the health of low-income children;
- And $1.5 trillion from hundreds of other public investments from water systems to highways to medical research and environmental protection — gone!
