Well, the Democrats not holding back in their weekly address criticizing the Republicans and the president about healthcare coverage among other things I'm Senator Bryan shots from Hawaii. Now, I know this is the democratic weekly address. And we're supposed to say the things that are good for Democrats in battle Republicans. But it's true. Republicans really are coming after your Medicare, Medicaid, this isn't a campaign slogan or an overstatement. It's right there in the budget that the president released this week. It's got one point five trillion dollars in cuts to Medicaid and eight hundred and forty five billion dollars in cuts to Medicare. And what's interesting is that these cuts add up to about two point three trillion dollars, which is literally the same amount that the tax cuts at the Republicans just gave to the wealthiest Americans last year. They lost two point three trillion dollars in revenue because they gave a fourteen percent tax cuts to corporations and seventeen billion dollars worth of tax cut. What's so the wealthiest Americans? And so now they're trying to pay for it by going after your healthcare. The president's budget also has other cuts that are totally unacceptable. Twenty five billion dollars from social security two hundred seven billion dollars from federal student loan programs two hundred and twenty billion dollars from programs that feed the poor and one third of the entire budget of the Environmental Protection Agency. And so this budget makes very clear the difference between Democrats and Republicans Republicans are all about tax cuts. And paying for it by cutting healthcare and Democrats want to expand health care coverage. Invest in students and protect the air, we breathe and the water that we drink. It's that simple. Thanks for listening. The opinion of the Democrats in their weekly address Pearl Jam guitarist.
