President Trump and Speaker Paul Ryan have been working effortlessly to sabotage the United States. They only care about one thing — power.
Recently the Trump admin. has announced several programs they intend to cut. Programs supporting America’s senior citizens are included in their list. Crucial programs like Medicare and Social Security could be cut by $1.7 trillion or more in the next decade.
This will be the largest hit senior citizens will have ever experienced in our nation’s history. Trump is driving away his largest voting base.
- Balanced budget: I am told Trump’s budget will balance over ten years. To get there, it will propose tough cuts on both the mandatory and discretionary sides — e.g. to the EPA and State Department — and will assume that the U.S economy will grow at 3 percent instead of the 1.6 percent rate it grew in 2016. The 3 percent growth rate will be reached after a few years, not immediately.
- Where the entitlement cuts are made: From programs including SNAP (food stamps), CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), and SSDI (Disability Insurance). The budget proposal will also assume that Trump can sign into law the American Health Care Act — the Obamacare repeal and replace bill that passed the House and is now being considered by the Senate. That bill makes substantial cuts to Medicaid.
- How the entitlement money will be saved: The source tells me there’ll be an “emphasis on work requirements for able-bodied people” to save money on these social welfare programs.
If we’ve learned one thing from the Trump administration, it’s that senior citizens aren’t important.
Liberal Speak also reported:
Paul Ryan and the rest of the Republicans in Congress just made the biggest mistake of their political careers.
The U.S. House on Wednesday gave approval to the RyanCare 2.0 bill, which will destroy the Affordable Care Act and endanger millions of Americans’ health care. The bad news for Republicans is that 38 million angry seniors are preparing to take revenge on them.
Seniors citizens are the Republicans’ most important voter group. If older Americans turn against the GOP like it appears they will, that could spell the end of the Republican Party once and for all.
Certainly the Donald can’t expect to be re-elected after dooming his largest voting base. Even though the majority of them were wrong to elect him the first place, nobody deserves the treatment they’re receiving from President Trump.
