Tonight’s the night. The U.S. Senate will be debating a Budget Resolution that will set the framework for how much federal spending will be cut, with a vote expected very early Friday morning. The Republican’s proposed budget will be very harmful to West Virginia’s families if it becomes law.

WV Services & Programs at Risk/Effect of Trump-GOP Plan on West Virginia Families:

 
To pay for massive tax cuts to the wealthy and corporations, President Trump and GOP leaders have proposed deep cuts to services that working families rely on. The Senate budget resolution would cut over 10 years:
  • $1.3 trillion from Medicaid and other health care programs
  • $470 billion from Medicare
  • $650 billion from income security programs, which may include cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program (SNAP, or food stamps), Supplemental Security Income (SSI) for disabled individuals, and tax credits for working families.
  • Also at risk are Pell Grants and other financial aid to help students afford college.
