Demand President Trump Stop Harming Low-Income Americans, Now!
This petition had 2,024 supporters
Since taking office, President Trump has taken several actions or proposed policies that have a catastrophic impact on lower-income Americans.
The clearest and most striking of these actions is his proposed budget released on May 23, 2017. This budget has been almost unanimously declared unusually cruel to poorer Americans.
The Trump "Taxpayer First Budget":
-Cuts SNAP, aka "Food Stamps" by 25%. That's essentially telling families receiving food assistance, "You have to stop eating and feeding your kids one week per month!"
-Cuts Medicaid by $627 billion over 10 years though he promised he wouldn't. This is in addition to $800 billion in cuts through his Obamacare replacement plan!
-Cuts Affordable Housing funding by over $6.8 billion per year. Including putting up to 290,000+ Housing Choice Voucher holders on the street. And pulls nearly $2 billion a year out of Public Housing.
In addition, his tax proposal will increase income inequality, Trumpcare will throw millions of people off of health care and numerous other policy initiatives work to reduce opportunity for our Nation's poorest citizens.
Tell President Trump 1) stop harming lower-income Americans 2) to IMMEDIATELY rescind his catastrophic budget and 3) to include ALL AMERICANS -- including lower-income Americans -- in all of his policy initiatives.
