Warren: Trump Budget "One Punch In The Face After Another To Hardworking People"

RealClear - 2 hours 6 min ago
In an interview with MSNBC's Lawrence O'Donnell, Sen. Elizabeth Warren (D-Mass.) warned, "Republicans in Washington are still advancing the Trump agenda more so than ever." SEN. WARREN: It appears that their view of compassion is that we make sure that we could knock 24 million people off health coverage. That we take the legs out from underneath Medicaid which one of the principle users are seniors who are in nursing homes, who otherwise have no alternatives and no way to pay for nursing home care. And that somehow he thinks he's going to get in front of that with a statement about compassion. This really is -- this is just -- this is beyond farce. Look at things like -- what they want to do to Education that Betsy DeVos and Donald Trump now propose about an $11 billion cut to public education and among the programs that they just want to cut out any Federal help for are things like AP classes, foreign languages, physical education, even support for the special Olympics that they just think, no, let's just see where all of those are at. And for young people who are trying to go to college, they want to take the whole loan forgiveness program that's there for people who have decide today go into public service who said I'm going to work for a lower paying job in public service and the American tax payers who said OK, we'll do a little loan forgiveness to help you pay the college debts off. No, zero that program out, take good programs like Gear Up and TRIA that help students get into college and make it through college you might have had a chance, zero that program out, increase the cost of student loans for low income students. It's like one punch in the face after another to hardworking people, to people who are trying to make something of their lives. If these guys really did believe an opportunity, if these guys did believe in helping build their own future then they'd be doubling the funding in programs like this not trying to take the legs out from underneath it. Let's be clear, what these guys really want to give is yes, they want to slash and burn in these programs. But the reason for that is so that they can produce tax cuts for millionaires and billionaires. Look at this so-called health care plan. It's a tax cut plan, 24 million people off health care. Raise cost for middle class families, increase cost for people over 50, open the door to discrimination against people with pre-existing conditions and people with mental health issues and people with Opioid addiction problems. And do all of that for what reason? In order to produce a tax break for a handful of millionaires and billionaires. Donald Trump is making it clear who he wants to run this government for on steroids and the answer is, for the rich and powerful and kick everybody else in the teeth. That's what this is all about. O'DONNELL: What is the effect of all of this Russian influence scandal in terms of the Trump agenda in Congress? Is it creating a legislative smoke screen where this unpopular agenda has a better chance of advancing or is it just gumming up the works and nothing has a real chance of advancing? WARREN: No, I'm actually very concerned. Keep in mind, the House went ahead and passed this horrible health care bill, moved it over to the Senate and right now behind closed doors. The Republicans in the United States Senate are actively negotiating what kind of a health care bill can they get out and then spring on the American people and see if they can ram it through before people actually understand what's in it and really push back on it. That's where they are right now and we all have to be on alert. And that's all happening while all of the Russia stuff continues to go forward. So now we've got Russia, we've got health care and we've got the budget rolling in. Now the Republicans in Washington are still advancing the Trump agenda more so than ever.
