🦀 Trump's Budget will cause the ☠️ DEATH of a LOT of innocent men, women and children.



Robert Cruickshank:

Quote
🦀 Trump just released his new budget for 2021, including $750 billion in Medicare cuts and $76 billion out of Social Security disability benefits. Worse yet, the budget cuts more than a trillion from Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program.1

These cuts are a moral abomination, but if we sound the alarm now, we can mobilize the kind of massive political backlash that will guarantee no president ever tries anything like this again.

The problem is that the 😈🎩 mainstream media is almost totally ignoring this story, so we need to launch a major public push to make sure the public knows what's happening before it's too late.

There's an old saying that Social Security is the "third rail of politics"—if you touch it, you die. The reason is that Social Security and Medicare are two of the most popular government programs of all time, and the people who primarily rely on these programs are seniors.

One of Trump's biggest campaign promises in 2016 was that unlike other Republicans, he promised never to touch Social Security, Medicare, or Medicaid.2 But then, two weeks ago, Trump told the global elites at the annual World Economic Forum in Davos that he would cut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid if he was re-elected.3

And now he's actually put forward a budget that cuts these programs by more than $1.5 trillion over the next ten years.

With any other president, cuts like this would be the lead headline in every newspaper and cable news show. But the media have been so obsessed with impeachment, horse-race politics, and the latest Trump Twitter distraction that they've barely mentioned these cuts. And if the people don't know what Trump is doing, he just might be able to sneak these cuts through.
