This week, the Senate and the House are frantically working out the differences between the tax bill previously passed in the House and the Senate’s version that passed late last week.
Both bills would add over $1 trillion to the debt, putting our nation’s bedrock programs—Medicare, Medicaid, and Social Security—in the cross-hairs of lawmakers who plan to use rising deficits as an excuse to “restructure” or “reform” these programs by gutting them.
The House and Senate tax bills would have harmful effects on people’s health care:
Pressure must be put on lawmakers in both the House and Senate to reject these dangerous bills. Their goal is to deliver a final bill to the President for his signature within the next few weeks. Congress must reject these flawed bills and rushed approach. We urge a fresh start, with a transparent and bipartisan process.
