Trump's budget hurts the most vulnerable
Help stop Donald Trump's assault on working Americans. Say you'll fight to elect Democrats who will stand up to the Trump agenda:
Even I was shocked the first time I read Donald Trump's budget proposal. It's almost hard to believe that he expects anyone to take this seriously. But it's just the latest piece of an agenda that is dangerous for all Americans.
So we have to elect Democrats who will stand up to Trump and fight for our values -- because there are real human costs if we allow Donald Trump's agenda to become reality.
The $800 billion he'd take away from Medicaid means more people going without treatment and prescriptions because they can't afford the care they need. The $9 billion he'd strip from education means fewer teachers and resources to help our children get ahead. The almost $200 billion he'd remove from programs like SNAP, which funds food stamps for people in need, will take plates off the table in millions of households all over the country -- in red states and blue ones.
This is a sad day for the American people. Trump has presented a budget that would fail to take care of our most vulnerable, leave our children woefully unprepared for the challenges of tomorrow, and do a truly incalculable amount of damage to millions of American families.
Democrats must stand together to make sure we're building an economy that works for every American, not just those at the top.
Add your name to help elect Democrats who will stand against the Trump agenda and fight for every person in this country to have the opportunity to succeed:
Thanks for stepping up.
