For years, the GOP have whined about the deficit. Then late last year, they exploded it with their $1.5 trillion . Now they say – Sorry! There’s no money left for Social Security & Medicare, let’s slash them. We’re not falling for it.

The Majority Leader has this all wrong. The bill from last year is the cause for rising deficits this year. We won’t let Republicans cover up that fact in order to gut essential programs like Medicare, Social Security, and Medicaid.

Final point: Trump and Republicans in Washington passed a $2 trillion . To pay for it, they want to cut over $2 trillion from Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security. So no, these hypocrites don't get to claim they're the saviors of people's health care now.

After giving billionaires and giant companies a $1.5 trillion tax cut and blowing up the deficit, Republicans are preparing to slash Medicare and Social Security to pay for it. The isn’t “reform” – it’s a heist, and hard-working Americans will be left empty-handed.

Not surprising that nearly two-thirds of Americans said they’ve seen no increase in their take-home pay from the GOP’s tax scam. The middle-class is left behind while corporations reap the windfall.

I just don't know what I can do to gain your trust, maybe embrace the ? But Moody (ya know that Lefty Wall Street firm) pointed out that 75% of the ind benefits go to the top 5% earning $200K or more. Is that a middle-class tax cut in your CPAish-opinion?

Part of selling the was the myth that tax cuts for the rich would pay for themselves without impacting the deficit. Their plan all along was to go after Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. On Nov. 6, the American people will show they aren’t letting that happen.

Not only have I not received that $4000 raise (or any raise), my tax bill for 2018 is projected to increase by several hundred dollars! Billionaires are getting their big tax break directly from us!

Earlier this week, Senator McConnell blamed entitlements—not the —for our ballooning deficit. Now, he says the ACA is up for debate despite court rulings and 62+ failures to dismantle it. Let's so we can put a check on him.
