Thanks to your efforts, we have derailed Trump’s anti-health care bill as confirmed by reports of GOP leadership in the Senate admitting defeat. This victory is of enormous significance since it will ensure millions of Americans get to keep their health care and won’t be faced with bankruptcy just because they get sick. While the battle was won, the war is far from over.

In the budgets proposed by President Trump and the House GOP leadership, the threat of cuts to health care, retirement security, and veterans’ services looms large. A blueprint of the House budget proposal released today would slash $5.4 trillion in spending over the coming decade, including almost $500 billion from Medicare, $1.5 trillion from Medicaid and the Obama health law, along with cuts to benefits such as federal employee pensions, food stamps, and tax credits for the working poor.
At the same time, the savings from programs that help the middle class would be redirected to the wealthy in the form of generous tax breaks. Furthermore, cuts to the federal workforce, one-third of whom are veterans, would harm military families. While the GOP has ignored our veterans, they have not hesitated to pour billions more toward military spending while sending our service men and women into harm’s way.
Your continued solidarity is crucial and will continue to make the difference in blocking the wave of anti-worker policies proposed by Trump and GOP leadership. Once again, take a moment right now and call to stop this reckless and destructive budget.
