A study, based on calculations by the nonprofit Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy, was released late last week. It shows that the estimated $2 trillion cost of the Bush and Trump-era tax cuts through 2025 is roughly the same amount Republicans have proposed cutting from Medicare, Medicaid, Social Security and Obamacare.

The GOP is determined to protect corporate tax cuts at the expense of our seniors and most vulnerable Americans. Medicare and Social Security are benefits we earn with every day we work and our seniors depend on for a secure and dignified retirement. Medicaid protects our children, our disabled and vulnerable elderly. As your Representative I will never put profit and corporate earnings ahead of the people of this state!
