Congress just approved a shockingly extreme budget.

Here's what you need to know:
It cuts critical national priorities by more than $5 trillion. Education, health care, research, and infrastructure are ALL threatened.
It cuts Medicare and Medicaid by nearly $2 trillion.
It includes trillions of $ in tax cuts that benefit the wealthy & corporations, while increasing taxes on millions of middle class families.
These tax cuts will INCREASE our debt and deficits by $1.5 trillion.

That's $1,500,000,000,000.
Once the tax cuts blow a huge hole in the budget, new attacks on programs that help Americans get by and get ahead will soon follow.
Social Security.
Nutrition assistance.

Vital services and benefits for American families will ALL be at risk.
The fight now shifts to the GOP tax plan that will be brought to the House floor in just a matter of weeks.
The GOP is rushing their tax plan to the floor because they don’t want you to know what's in it.
The American people deserve a budget that invests in their future, a tax code that is fair, and a full and honest debate on both.
This budget and the tax cuts that will follow fail the American people on all fronts.
