Trump's Budget hurts both us and our troops

Trump’s budget is now out as well as the CBO score of TrumpCare 2.0, and it doesn’t look good for most Americans who actually work for a living.

Twenty-Three Million will lose health coverage. That’s the population of Texas back in 2007.

The further insult is that TrumpCare is a massive tax cut to the ultra rich, who honestly don’t need more money. Do you know who does? Our service members.

Gutting Medicaid and anti-poverty programs barely scratches the surface of what this budget does. (Which he promised he wouldn't do.) Currently, twenty-three thousand service members are on food stamps to feed their children. Forty-five percent of military children qualify for free or reduced price lunches at school. Office of Management and Budget Director Mick Mulvaney doesn’t seem to care, as the Trump budget is going to gut these programs for hard-working Americans, claiming that "If you are on food stamps, and you are able-bodied, we need you to go to work.”

Putting your life on the line to defend our Freedom is a full time job; but the millionaires in Congress are so detached from the lives of ordinary citizens that they can’t understand the damage they would be doing to hand the Koch Brothers yet another tax cut.

I’m an ex-conservative because the GOP sold their souls a long time ago and forgot Matthew 25:40 - “Whatever you did for one of the least of these brothers and sisters of mine, you did for me.” We need to preserve and strengthen the safety net, and raise minimum wage to get people off of food stamps, which has been proven to actually help the economy.

We need people who aren’t millionaires and understand everyday problems rather than just do partisan bickering.

I’m running in 2018 as someone who actually works for a living, and wants to represent fellow laborers who simply want their fair share of the pie. Let's change the direction of the country. Midterms are Coming.
