GOP Tax Plan: You Get Tricked, They Get Treats
October 28, 2017 @ 10:45 am - 11:30 am
The GOP tax bill has massive cuts for Medicare and Medicaid ($1 trillion from Medicaid, $473 billion from Medicare), as well as further expected cuts next year as the budget has to contend with the reduced revenue. It’s scary! We’re taking Halloween-themed action to raise awareness of the effect on health care of this tax bill.
What to wear: Black! We will provide a “Rich Uncle Pennybags” mask, or you can print and bring one yourself (image in Discussion post).
We will provide: Large checks made out to “Billionaires” from “My Medicaid” and “Real Estate Developers” from “Children’s Health Services,” etc. The idea is to show that “tax cuts” come out of health care dollars for the most vulnerable.
Not one penny in tax cuts for millionaires, billionaires, and big corporations at the expense of Americans’ healthcare!
Speakers include: Congressman Jerrold Nadler (NY 10th District); Morris Pearl, Chair of the Patriotic Millionaires; activist Michael Kink of Strong Economy For All Coalition; as well as healthcare providers and your neighbors with personal healthcare stories
Location/meeting point: In front of Castle Clinton in Battery Park
