The Energy and Commerce Department has released a district by district summary of what the GOP Ryan plan for Medicare and Medicaid will do to the elderly, the disabled, pregnant women, children, and many others. The plan, which was adopted by almost all Republican house members, will have disastrous effects in every district.
The publication allows you to plug in your own district, anywhere in the country. If you have curiosity about other districts and the impact of the GOP votes and support for the Ryan Path, check them out, also. Remember, the numbers represent people. These people are your fellow citizens. Don't care? Not interested? Oh, well? We can't afford to help these people?
Keep thinking like that! You may end up becoming one of those numbers. Someone you love and care about may be one of those numbers. Your neighbors, your friends, your family? Are they not important to you? They are obviously not important to the Republican Party.
As you look at the summary of the effects on your Congressional district, think priorities. Think also, that almost every Republican Senator and every Republican Congressman voted 'Yes'. That 'Yes' vote must not be forgotten. That 'Yes' vote must not go unchallenged!
Part of that 'Yes" vote included support for $4.2 trillion dollars in additional tax cuts to the wealthiest corporations in this country. I have pointed out in previous articles:
- The plan cuts taxes to the wealhtiest of corporations and individuals by $4.2 Trillion dollars.
- The plan pays for the tax cuts by cutting programs for the poor and middle class by $4.5 Trillion dollars.
After you read the effects that the Republican AGENDA will have on you, your friends, your neighbors, YOUR FAMILY, or even strangers that ARE people, not numbers, send an email to to your Representative. Send a letter to your newspaper. Stop sitting back. Stop being apathetic. Make a difference, or at least, make a statement.
