#GOPTaxScam Puts Medicare and Medicaid on the Chopping Block to Give a Tax Break to the One Percent 1
#RESIST #ProtectOurCare

Americans across the country can’t be fooled: the debt-exploding GOP tax scam puts Medicare and Medicaid on the chopping block and ultimately raises taxes on 86 million middle class American families: 2 #GOPTaxScam #Medicaid #Medicare #ProtectOurCare

#GOPTaxScam Raises Taxes on 86 Million Middle Class Families – the GOP tax scam’s meager, temporary benefits for the middle class evaporate in a few years, and the scam ultimately raises taxes on 86 million middle class families. 3 #GOPlies #VoteThemOut

#GOPTaxScam Gives 83 Percent of the Tax Cuts to the Wealthiest 1 Percent – the GOP tax scam puts corporations and the richest ahead of everyone else. 4 #RiseUp #RepublicanGreed (Cartoon by Monte Wolverton)

$1.3 Trillion Tax Rate Break for Corporations – instead of simplifying the tax code or making it fairer, Republicans handed permanent tax breaks to big corporations, rewarded corporations shipping jobs overseas & added even more loopholes for special interests to exploit. 5

#GOPTaxScam Explodes Debt by At Least $1.8 Trillion, Targets Medicare & Medicaid – Republicans have stuck our children with the bill for their debt-exploding giveaways to the wealthiest/will use the debt they created to justify ransacking the future of all Americans 6

Already, Trump has proposed his budget that cuts $500 billion from Medicare, $1.4 trillion from Medicaid, $72 billion from Social Security disability and $214 billion from SNAP. 7 #GOPTaxScam #GOPEvilBudget #ProtectOurCare.

#GOPTaxScam After receiving massive windfalls from the GOP tax scam, corporations are overwhelmingly pocketing the benefits themselves – instead of sharing them with hard-working Americans: 8 #GOPGreed (Cartoon from otherwords.org)

Morgan Stanley analysts estimated that almost two-thirds of the corporate windfall from the GOP tax scam will be spent on buybacks, dividends, mergers and acquisitions. Just 13 percent would go toward bonuses and raises. 9 #GOPTaxScam #GOPGreed

Many corporations are even laying off thousands of workers as they pocket massive tax breaks for themselves; 10 #GOPTaxScam #GOPGreed #TreatOrTrick

Meanwhile, the #GOPTaxScam is actually rewarding corporations that ship jobs overseas. 11 #GOPGreed #VoteThemOut

True to form, Republicans delivered their wealthy donors a massive tax break on the backs of hard-working Americans – and their donors are giving them even bigger campaign contributions to seal the deal. 12 #GOPTaxScam #GOPGreed #Corruption

Democrats want real, bipartisan tax reform that puts the middle class first with A Better Deal: Better Jobs, Better Wages, Better Future. 13 #ABetterDeal #LivingWage #DemsWork4USA #MiddleClass

#ABetterDeal to Rebuild America
After a year’s worth of promises to deliver a big infrastructure bill, the President finally released a puny infrastructure scam that utterly fails to meet the needs of America’s communities. 14 #Infrastructure #GOPLies #GOPFail

Instead of renewing America, the Trump plan raises costs for consumers, increases the burden on cities & states, sells off essential infrastructure to Wall Street, ends vital worker & environmental protections & cuts almost $170B at the same time it proposes $200 billion. 15

Democrats have #ABetterDeal to Rebuild America – our $1 trillion national commitment to rebuilding America’s broken infrastructure that is five times larger than President Trump’s puny plan. 16 #DemsWork4USA #BlueWave2018 #Infrastructure

#ABetterDeal to Rebuild America will create 16 million American jobs rebuilding and modernizing our crumbling roads, bridges, transit, airports, ports, waterways, rail, transit and schools, and will bring high-speed Internet to every corner of the country. 17 #DemPartyPlatform
