AFL-CIO: Trump’s Budget Betrays Working People
The AFL-CIO says Trump’s proposed budget is “the most significant betrayal yet of the working people he claims to support.”
The labor federation says it cuts “$1.5 trillion from Medicaid, $59 billion from Medicare and up to $64 billion from Social Security.”
At the same time it lavishes massive tax cuts on the wealthy while cutting education by $10.6 billion according to the AFL-CIO.
The labor federation says perhaps the ultimate insult of Trump’s ‘betrayal budget’ is that “all of these sacrifices are levied on working families in order to justify massive tax cuts for the wealthy and corporations.”
