Trump Budget/ People's Budget

March Against President Trump's Budget Plan

Wednesday, May 31, 11:30am, Tip O'Neill Federal Bldg, Boston

This time it's a matter of life and death.

I'll be There

The country has never seen anything like it! The budget cuts and tax breaks proposed in the President’s Fiscal Year 2018 budget proposal and the forthcoming House budget proposal to follow will impact every program that helps each of us achieve a decent quality of life – and in many cases, to maintain life itself. It’s time to rise up in opposition while there’s time and to insist on a budget that puts people first:

11:30am: Assemble at Tip O'Neill Federal Bldg 10 Causeway St Boston
12:00 noon:  Rally at O’Neill Bldg
12:30 pm:  March to JFK Federal Bldg
1:00 pm:   Rally at JFK Bldg

Confirmed Speakers

State Senator Jamie Eldridge
Patricia Downs Berger, MD, co-chair, Mass-Care
Michael Kane, executive director, Massachusetts Alliance of HUD Tenants

Trump Budget Pie FY2018. National Priorities Project

The President’s plan released on May 23 would cut over $800 billion in mandatory spending from Medicaid, food stamps, SSI & SSDI, child health, housing, and education over 10 years. These cuts would be on top of the $54 billion each year the President intends to take out of climate protection, housing, meals on wheels, worker safety, cancer research and many other key programs and move into the Pentagon budget – AND on top of the $880 billion cut to Medicaid in the health care repeal bill already passed by the House of Representatives! All to help pay for his proposed $5 trillion in tax cuts, primarily for corporations and high rollers. And these budget priorities – and even worse – will be mirrored in the official House Republican Budget that will be put up for a vote in the upcoming months.

There Is An Alternative! The People's Budget

I'll be There

On May 31 we will not only march against the President’s Budget priorities. We will also promote The People's Budget. Released on May 2 by the Congressional Progressive Congress, this comprehensive and economically sound budget can serve as the “Roadmap for the Resistance”. The People's Budget gives us a sound alternative budget to fight for that moves our country away from the human disaster awaiting us and toward prosperity and a society in which people matter. It cuts Pentagon spending including the dangerous nuclear weapons build-up. The People's Budget will also be voted on in the upcoming months.

Sign me up -- I'll be there on May 31!
