Wisconsin's nearly 400 nursing facilities are facing closures or financial loss due to a shortage of workers and the state's low Medicaid reimbursement rate, health care advocates say. https://t.co/0Fg14x6bHt
President Trump wants to end #AIDS. He could: reverse HIV/AIDS budget cuts & increase funding; embrace evidence-based age-appropriate sex ed; expand #RyanWhite funding to PrEP; support Medicaid expansion, safe needle exchanges & local public health depts; respect LGBTQ Americans.
Make no mistake: After they borrow $1.5 trillion to pass a windfall tax break for corporations and the rich, Trump, Ryan, and McConnell will seek cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security to pay it back.
It’s this simple: If Republicans win in November, they will do everything they can to cut Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security because their tax cuts for corporations made the deficit go up. We can’t let it reach that point. Vote on November 6.
Here's the thing-- Mitch McConnell is gaslighting us. Republicans rammed through a bill to give huge tax breaks to corporations and the mega-rich, and now they're using its consequences as an excuse to propose cuts to Medicare and Medicaid. It's all part of the GOP fever dream.
Remember: the two main means-tested programs in America are Medicaid and SNAP (food stamps). In each case most beneficiaries are children, elderly, or disabled. The idea that we're handing out billions to lazy bums is false and slanderous.
McConnell’s message to the American people: “If you keep us in power we’ll cut your health care, gut Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid to pay for our tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations, and, heck, we might even cut their taxes further.” He’s goading us to vote.
Do Senator McConnell and Republicans really think the middle class and Americans across the country want to see cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security, our health care law, and protections for pre-existing conditions?
It’s hard to believe, but they keep saying it out loud.
