1. Take Action.
Take Action by letting Congress know that the proposed tax changes are completely unacceptable. The plan that the Republican Senate majority sent to the Republican House majority calls for a tax cut of $1.5 trillion. That’s $1,500,000,000,000. Most of that cut will be provided to individuals and corporations that have the highest incomes. Because the Republicans choose not to work collaboratively with Democrats, they decided to create a balanced budget by making $1.5 Trillion in cuts.
What did they propose cutting? $1 trillion from Medicaid. About $470 million from Medicare. Because if you cannot agree to repeal the ACA, there are other ways to destroy medical care for the elderly and the poor.
What happens if funding is cut for medical care? We pay. We pay in our medical bills. We pay for our parents and children. We pay in our insurance costs. And we pay more, because we don’t have the advantage of consolidating the costs.
Our scripts (click here) include an opportunity for you to call our Senators and Representatives. This bill is going to be fast tracked.
