Will Loeffler Stand with the Trump Budget’s Cuts to Medicare, CHIP “100%” Like She’s Promised?

February 10, 2020

As Trump proposes to cut life-saving programs Georgia families rely on, Loeffler must answer for her “100%” support of Trump and Republicans’ reckless agenda

ATLANTA — Today, as President Donald Trump announced a reckless new budget that would slash billions from vital programs like Medicare, Social Security Disability Insurance, the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), and Medicaid, temporary senator and “political mega-donor” Kelly Loeffler continues to stand with him and Washington Republicans’ disastrous agenda “100%.” 

This latest push for harmful budget cuts come after Trump and Washington Republicans already stacked nearly $2 trillion onto the national debt to pay for their tax handout to the wealthy and corporate special interests. Now, they’re ready to stick Georgia families with the bill for their reckless tax giveaways to the richest 1% that increased economic inequality while doing next to nothing to grow the economy.

Loeffler previously stayed silent when Trump called for putting cuts to critical earned benefits programs like Social Security and Medicare on the table. Now with Trump’s latest budget proposal, she’s again ready to put her party’s reckless agenda ahead of Georgians’ well-being.

“Kelly Loeffler has already promised she will ‘100%’ put the president and Washington Republicans’ reckless agenda ahead of everyday Georgians,” said Alex Floyd, spokesman for the Democratic Party of Georgia. “Instead of fighting for the president’s support, Kelly Loeffler should be fighting to protect the critical health care and disability benefits Georgia families and children rely on.”
