Cuts to Medicare + Cuts to Medicaid = Tax cuts for the 1%?!?

In their recent budget proposal, Republicans announced that they would cut Medicaid by $1 trillion and cut Medicare by $473 billion. And then they somehow came up with a $1.5 trillion tax giveaway to the wealthiest few and big corporations.

Are you doing the math with me?

$1 trillion in cuts to Medicaid + $473 billion in cuts to Medicare = nearly $1.5 trillion in tax cuts for the 1 percent

There’s still time to protect Medicare, but we must act fast and expose their dangerous, deceitful plan. Sign the petition to tell Republicans not to cut Medicare!

Senate Republicans might want you to believe this is a coincidence, but don’t be fooled. They’re cutting Medicaid and Medicare to fund tax cuts for their super-wealthy donors.

Millions of seniors depend on Medicare – for many it’s life or death. We can’t let them cut this vital program to hand out money to the ultra-rich.

Add your name right now to tell the GOP: No cuts to Medicare!
