Bernie Sanders: GOP budget would gut Medicare, Medicaid, other key programs

Mick Mulvaney

While the specific spending cuts in the House GOP budget resolution-which include a trillion dollars in cuts to Medicaid-are non-binding, they are nonetheless an indication of the devastating steps Republicans are willing to take in order to deliver more wealth to the richest Americans. Their most recent attempt, the Graham-Cassidy bill, flopped when Maine's Republican senator Susan Collins rejected it over those exact concerns. He hasn't commented specifically on the potential entitlement cuts that his party appears to be exploring as part of tax reform. Bill Cassidy, R-Louisiana, said to the media following the announcement.

Whether all the Dems will stick together to derail both the budget blueprint and Trump's tax cut is uncertain. We have over 200 bills sitting stalled over there.

The Post reports that Republicans believe religious-right extremist Roy Moore's victory in the Alabama GOP Senate primary was driven by an angry grass-roots backlash at Congress' failure to realise Trump's agenda, and they expect more to come.

With the House passing its version, the focus on the budget now heads to the Senate where Republicans will look to keep their majority intact even as some of its members have warned they will not support proposals which add to the national debt.

Many people are hoodwinked by Donald Trump's catch phrases and the Republicans' dishonest populist rhetoric, but please pay attention to what they do, not what they say.


Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., got a front row seat to the disillusionment the donors to his party are feeling, being told by one contributor to 'just do something'. He is the president of the United States. That's the point of the entire Republican Party basically. Trump has proposed a reduction in individual tax rates, including cutting the top rate from 39.6 percent to 35 percent and reducing the number of total rates from seven to three.

Our tax code blocks too many companies, from startups to corporate giants, from investing, hiring and expanding.

A spokesman for Poliquin did not respond to a request for comment.

Moore has also used his trip to Washington to meet with Steve Bannon, Aderholt said, Trump's former White House strategist, who backed Moore in the primary.

In the wake of the ObamaCare repeal effort, voters are looking for results.


'Anybody who was there knew that I was not happy.

Okay, so the Republican high command has met in yet another series of secret meetings outside of what American hero John McCain calls "regular order" in the legislative process.

McCain later told The Hill that the health-care bill was doomed because it's virtually impossible to tackle something as huge as reform as health care on a partisan basis.

Republican leaders would be better served to work with the opposition in finding a bipartisan fix for the existing law, rather than opting to go with legislation that was drafted exclusively by the GOP. However, there are still plenty of differences between the House and Senate on the details of tax reform, not least the extent to which a tax reform bill will be allowed to increase the deficit. That doesn't auger particularly well for the hopes of Republicans to snag a few Democratic votes in the Senate to offset possible GOP defections of the kind that sunk their health care legislation. This House Republican budget is removed from the reality in cities and towns across the country.
