One "small" problem...The reading of the script neglects to mention a couple of things.
Firstly, #BBA - #BalancedBudgetAmendment actually means gutting SS, Medicare, public education as a start.

[STATEMENT] On behalf of our 38 million members and all Americans age 50 and older, AARP CANNOT support the Tax Cuts and Jobs Act of 2017.

Our full letter to Congress: Image
As written, the tax bill would:
—Explode the deficit by $1.5 trillion
—Put critical programs like Medicare and Medicaid at risk
—Likely increase taxes on many older Americans
—Increase health care costs & lower coverage.
Exploding the deficit would jeopardize the nation's ability to fund critical programs serving older Americans – and not just "down the road."

The nonpartisan CBO says Medicare would be cut by $25 billion NEXT YEAR alone. Unacceptable.

Medicare is a deal with the American people that must not be broken. We're calling on Congress to take action NOW to stop a $25 BILLION cut to Medicare.

Our letter to Congressional leaders: 1/5 Image
If Congress doesn't act before the end of the year, Medicare will be hit with an automatic $25B cut in 2018 alone.

If these cuts go into effect, seniors could lose access to the doctors they count on. 2/5
These cuts could also put access to hospital services like emergency care and rehabilitative services in jeopardy. 3/5
