After passing nearly $2 trillion in tax cuts for corporate special interests and the super-rich, Republicans are now working to slash food assistance for more than 3 million Americans, including children, seniors, and people with disabilities. This cruel policy proposal comes after Senate Republicans have threatened to use earned benefits like Social Security and Medicare to pay for their “lopsided” tax giveaway that boosted the wealthiest while leaving working families behind.
“Senate Republicans had no problem giving billions of dollars in tax breaks to giant corporations and their wealthy donors, and now their party is pushing to take away food assistance for those who need it, including children, seniors and people with disabilities,” said Democratic Senatorial Campaign Committee spokesperson Stewart Boss. “This is the latest in a steady stream of Republican policies that will hurt their constituents, and Republican incumbents will be forced to defend this harmful agenda.”
