Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (D-NY) took to the Senate floor a few minutes ago to blast the new Republican health care proposal, Trumpcare. According to Schumer, the plan will cut services, give massive tax breaks to the wealthy and, not surprisingly, screw the middle-class.
“Donald Trump has talked about helping working America. The plan he has embraced, Trumpcare, helps the rich, hurts the average American, and that is not surprising given all the other things that they’re doing the same way,” said Schumer. “This administration continues — and health care is part of that — to talk like populists but act like those helping the wealthy special interests time after time after time.”
“Under Trumpcare, if you make over $250,000 a year, you will get a tax break on average of $200,000 a year. But if you’re in the middle class, the costs will increase by about $1,500 annually, and after 2020, by $2,000 a year. So Trumpcare is a health care handout for the wealthiest Americans and fake health care for everybody else.”
