What has the Republican Congress and White House done for, or to, workers in their first 100 days?
House Speaker Paul Ryan proclaimed they would help the unemployed, the sick and educate the young.
The AFL-CIO says they worked to deprive 24 million Americans of healthcare, supported a budget plan that cut back on worker health and safety, cut Meals on Wheels and cut education funding for kids with disabilities.
Republicans in Washington also put a champion of corporate America on the Supreme Court.
They failed to move on a $1 trillion investment in infrastructure to create jobs. The House and Senate voted more than a dozen times each to wipe out regulations protecting workers from hazards on the job.
Now, the AFL-CIO says, Republicans are working on a tax plan to further cuts taxes for corporations and the rich while “starving programs that support needy families.”
