“But it’s not only cuts to Medicaid and Medicare, it is cuts to nutrition programs,” Sanders said. “The [Women, Infants, and Children] program, designed to provide help to low-income pregnant women and newly born babies, will be cut when we have more infant mortality, higher infant mortality, than any other country. Head Start programs will be cut, child care programs will be cut, affordable housing programs will be cut.”
offer some evidence,
These baseless blatant inventions on your part have zero credibility.
Obama and the Dems got medical insurance to 23,000,000 people that the Repubs ignoredand want to kick off the roles.
Here's the real dope on the GOP cuts.
How these morons want to cut essential health insurance and food programs for children to give bigger tax cuts to the rich is beyond inhuman. What holes did these animals crawl out of?
According to the GOP, it's okay to kill people . . . around the world with more defense spending.
Financial effects from regulations are difficult to measure, because there are so many variables involved that cannot be "tied down."
I'm interested in what regulations were "stripped away" to allow "Trickle Down" to work? I haven't seen any proof that we have less regulation on business than we did 30 years ago, if anything govt regulation has increased to the point where we are one of the most expensive countries to run a business.
WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans have decided to include the repeal of the Affordable Care Act’s requirement that most people have health insurance in a sprawling overhaul of the tax code, merging the fight over health care with the high-stakes effort to cut taxes.
Repealing the so-called individual mandate, as President Trump had urged, would help Republicans with the difficult math problem they face in refining their tax plan. But it also risks reigniting the contentious debate over health care that Republicans found themselves mired in for much of the year.
“I’m pleased the Senate Finance Committee has accepted my proposal to repeal the Obamacare individual mandate in the tax legislation,” said Senator Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas, who had pushed for the mandate to be eliminated as part of the tax bill. “Repealing the mandate pays for more tax cuts for working families and protects them from being fined by the I.R.S. for not being able to afford insurance that Obamacare made unaffordable in the first place.”
In order to be protected from a Democratic filibuster, the tax bill can add no more than $1.5 trillion to federal budget deficits over a decade, and it cannot add to the deficit after a decade. Eliminating the mandate would free up more than $300 billion over a decade that could go toward tax cuts, according to the Congressional Budget Office.
Because getting rid of the mandate would lead to a decline in the number of people with health coverage, the government would spend less money on subsidized health plans.
Several conservative senators have also called for its repeal as part of the tax overhaul, including Tom Cotton, Republican of Arkansas, and Rand Paul, Republican of Kentucky.
Mr. Paul said on Tuesday that he would seek to amend the Senate plan to repeal the mandate and “provide bigger tax cuts for middle-income taxpayers.”
“The mandate repeal is a promise we all made, and we should keep,” Mr. Paul said.
