During his campaign, Trump promised he would make no cuts to Social Security, Medicare and Medicaid. He said it would be unfair to the people who have been paying into those programs for years.
Now Republicans have proposed a budget that would throw 30 million Americans off their health insurance. They want to privatize Medicare, raise prescription costs, and reduce Social Security benefits, which serves as the primary source of income for the majority of seniors.
Tomorrow Bernie is introducing a budget amendment that would prevent Senate Republicans from breaking Donald Trump's campaign promise to make no cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security. Will you help make sure that enough senators support his amendment so it will be passed?
The Republicans' proposal to cut spending on Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security is out of touch with what the American people want. Most Americans think that the federal government should be spending more on these programs, not less.
We can't sit back and allow 30 million people to be denied health care and Social Security benefits. Our goal is to expand health care, not cut health insurance for tens of millions of Americans.
Bernie's doing his part to make sure Republicans don't take away health care for millions of Americans – now we have to do ours as well by telling his colleagues in the Senate to vote in support of Bernie's amendment:
Thank you for stepping up to make sure Bernie's amendment is passed.
