The bad news is that Trump and his Republican colleagues are back again. Now they are pushing the most destructive and unfair budget and tax proposals in the modern history of our country. A budget that would do incalculable harm. This budget is the Robin Hood principle in reverse. It takes from those in need and gives to those who are already living in incredible opulence.
As many of you will remember, one of the major tenets of Donald Trump's campaign for President was that he would not cut Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. Well, this budget makes massive cuts to Medicaid and Medicare, and I've got a message for President Trump. Tell your Republican friends that they should respect your campaign promises or that you will veto any legislation that cuts Medicaid or Medicare.
Our job now is to stand up, fight back and to defeat this horrendous budget.
