Donald Trump Proposes Cutting Health Care for Children to Protect Tax Breaks for Billionaires

Tuesday May 8, 2018


WASHINGTON, D.C. — In response to President Trump’s proposal to Congress to cut billions from the Children’s Health Insurance Program (CHIP), Not One Penny spokesperson Tim Hogan released the following statement:

“Donald Trump and congressional Republicans gave tax breaks to the wealthiest individuals and biggest corporations, and now they are trying to fund it by slashing health care for children whose families are struggling to get by. When they gave 83 percent of the TrumpTax to the richest 1 percent, it was wrong. When they slash children’s health care to fund it, that is cruel.”
