Republican Tax Plan Contemplates Cuts to Disability Benefits and Healthcare
REPUBLICAN TAX PLAN CUTS ENTITLEMENTS
The Republican Tax Plan will be paid for by cutting entitlement programs, such as Social Security Disability, Medicare and Medicaid. These are entitlements that working citizens pay for with taxes out of every paycheck. If Congress changes these programs, millions of individuals will reach old age and be left without financial security and healthcare. You will also lose the money that you invest throughout your working life in your entitlements. Again, these are not handouts. This is not welfare.
These are benefits that you paid for with your work. That is why they are called entitlements, because you paid for them. Therefore, you are entitled to get what you paid for. Most people expect to rely on these benefits as their full retirement. Everyone who works depends on these benefits, at least as a supplement to their retirement savings. The Republicans twist the word “entitlement” to mean something you should feel entitled to that you don’t really deserve. That is simply not the meaning of the word when it comes to paying for a benefit for your entire life and then receiving that benefit.
YOU PAY FOR YOUR ENTITLEMENTS, SO THEY ARE THERE FOR YOU WHEN YOU NEED THEM
Additionally, the Republican Tax Plan contemplates eliminating Medicaid and disability benefits, which workers also pay for with their taxes. Medicaid is the healthcare program that helps the neediest in our society. Without Medicaid millions of people will go without healthcare. Medicare is the program that working citizens become entitled to when they reach the age of 65. Do not believe the Republican politicians when they say that people do not deserve the benefits that they pay for. They do.
Everyone is entitled to the benefits that they work for. If you care about your future, vote for a democrat. Do not vote for the party that only care about big business. Because, the Republican Tax Plan is giving tax benefits to corporations and the most wealthy individuals in our society, on the backs of the neediest.
