In health-care bill, two prized Republican goals converge
The GOP has a “historic” chance to cut taxes and reshape Medicaid.
If anyone you know supported/supports Trump, have them read this. Then remind them that the Medicaid cuts will hurt 75 million disabled Americans, women and children and this was never part of Trump’s campaign promises. Tell them to call their Senators to vote no.
“The Senate Republican health-care bill would achieve a historic convergence of GOP priorities, placing major, permanent caps on Medicaid spending and providing a significant tax cut for wealthy Americans.
President Trump and congressional Republicans describe the legislation as fulfilling their promise to repeal the Affordable Care Act, or Obamacare, but key provisions are also aimed at making progress on the GOP’s long-held goal of cutting entitlement spending.
The legislation would sharply break with pledges Trump made during the 2016 campaign to block reductions in Medicaid spending and to deliver tax cuts primarily to the middle class.”
