The American Health Care Act would cause 23 million people to lose their health coverage, according to the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. Those with coverage would have skimpier benefits and higher out-of-pocket costs. This is not a pretty picture, and AFSCME is committed to stopping this terrible bill.

President Donald Trump campaigned on a promise to lift up the “forgotten” men and women of this country, but his 2018 budget proposal would do no such thing. It would cut vital programs used by the people who put him in office just so Trump could provide huge tax cuts for the wealthy and big corporations.

Donald Trump ran on a promise to lift up the forgotten man and woman, but he has already forgotten us. He puts corporations and the wealthy first. Now he’s turning his back on those who elected him again by laying out a budget for 2018 that lowers living standards for working and middle class Americans, all to give tax cuts to the wealthy and privileged few.
