51 Republican Senators Just Voted to Cut $400 Billion From Medicare

(Washington, DC) — The following is a statement from Alex Lawson, Executive Director of Social Security Works, in reaction to the Republican tax bill that just passed the Senate:

“51 Republican Senators just voted to cut $400 billion from Medicare over the course of the next decade. The health care of tens of millions of seniors is now in jeopardy, all so that Republicans can give a massive tax handout to their billionaire donors.

Now the bill moves to conference with the House. Both the Senate and the House are likely to have one more opportunity to vote on the final tax bill. Massive resistance from the American people defeated Trumpcare, and it’s not too late for the people to defeat this Medicare cutting tax scam too.”
