The Republican Party plans to pay for its tax scam with cuts to entitlements, That means Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security!
House Speaker Paul Ryan, speaking to Ross Kaminsky on his radio talk show, said that the House would be working to reform entitlements in 2018, calling them “the big drivers of our debt,” during a discussion about the Republican tax bill. (CNN Sophie Tatum)
“There it is,Paul Ryan just admitted that after providing $1 trillion in tax breaks to the top 1% and large corporations, Republicans will try to cut Social Security, Medicare, Medicaid and help for the most vulnerable Americans.” Senator Bernie Sanders declares.
Though Ryan specifically mentions Medicare as being the “biggest entitlement that’s got to have reform;” the “big drivers of our debt” are the Republicans who just added $1.7 trillion to our national debt.
The Republican Party has no comprehension of the lives of the working men and women who drive this nation’s daily economy. Commenting on Twitter, Paul Ryan announced how wonderful and exciting it was for a woman in Wisconsin who just found out that she would now be having a dollar and a half ($1.50) more in her pay check each week due to the Republican Tax Scam. Once he was told how insane that remark was, he pulled the comment.
These kinds of remarks are now standard trash talk from the Republican Party who does not recognize, that what they are talking about are not “entitlements.” These are hard earned benefits that working men and women paid for with our blood, sweat and tears. We earned these benefits!
The average tax cut for the 1% in 2018 is $51,140. The average tax cut for the .o1% in 2018 is $193,380. If you make less than $75,000 a year you lose under the GOP Tax Scam. (The Plum Line Greg Sargent) How big is your tax cut?
The Republican Party, with people like Paul Ryan, and Mitch McConnell continues to seek ways to steal from the most vulnerable in our nation and refuses to find solutions to our most basic problems: our national debt, gun violence, our economy, our lack of infrastructure and our lack of positive global relations.
The Republican Party continues down the wrong road driven by their insane leaders, their excuses, and their finger pointing. All of the Republican delegates from Oklahoma, House and Senate, voted for this massive give-a-way and are now seeking ways to make the working men and women in Oklahoma pay for it.
Now more than ever we need to elect Democrats to every level of service. Many people voted to elect Republicans and those same Republicans, once elected, dismiss all who voted for them. Now is the time to elect Democratic people who will listen and respond to your call in order to balance the representation of power. With your support and perseverance. change can be made for all of us. Without your involvement in the political process, nothing will change.
Our leaders in politics and business need to know that you cannot serve two masters. If money and ego is your number one master, then everything else will be lost.
