Trump’s Proposed Budget Is an Attack on his Own Supporters

trump-2

Trump’s proposed budget combined with Trumpcare would cut nearly $1.5 trillion from Medicaid over the next 10 years. Assistance with healthcare, food, and housing would be greatly reduced for children, the poor, and disabled Americans; including veterans.

Trump’s supporters consist of millions of rural Americans. His ‘base’ in all states is composed of men, women, and children who need social programs the most. The bottom three states; the poorest in the nation, are Mississippi, West Virginia, and Arkansas; all strong supporters of Donald Trump. In general ‘red’ states; those who strongly approve of Trump; will suffer the most from Trump’s proposed budgets. He is waging a war on his own supporters.

Who will benefit from Trumpcare and Trump’s budget? Donald Trump. He and the rest of the one-percent of wealthiest Americans will receive trillions of dollars in tax cuts over ten years. In America, it’s always ‘follow the money.’

I ask a question about Trump which I cannot answer; is Trump so out of touch with the vast majority of the American people that he cannot comprehend the effects of his inability to govern, or is he so greedy that he is literally raising his middle finger to the majority of our nation’s 320 million people?

Remember; Trump promised his supporters that he would protect social security, Medicare, and Medicaid, and insure that they would not suffer cuts under his administration.

Finally, carefully scrutinize Republicans in the House and Senate. Who will stand up for the people? Who will deserve your vote when they run for reelection? And who will continue their hypocritical support of the worst president in history.?
