Cuts To Healthcare STILL The Core of Washington Republican Agenda

After losing a historic 40 seats in the 2018 midterms, Washington Republicans are doubling down on the deeply unpopular cuts to healthcare they ran on last cycle… and lost.

Not only would the Republican budget bring over $2.3 trillion in cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, it confirms that repealing our current healthcare system is still Republican doctrine in Washington.

In response to yet another Republican budget that would be disastrous for everyday Americans, DCCC Spokesperson Cole Leiter released the following statement:

“Washington Republicans have put their values on full display with the budget they submitted today. From reckless cuts to Medicare and Medicaid, to reckless cuts to our healthcare system, Republicans are, once again, recklessly endangering the best interests of everyday Americans, while they hand out goodies to their special interest backers.”
