The Real Agenda of Trump & GOP Revealed

Yesterday, in an interview with the Washington Post, Former Trump economic adviser Gary Cohn revealed he was "stunned" by Trump's proposed 2020 budget recommending $26 billion in cuts to Social Security and the Social Security Disability Insurance program.

What's stunning is that anybody would be stunned by this.

Republicans in Congress and the trump administration are proposing these cuts to Social Security by billions of dollars, while increasing multibillion dollar subsidies for the oil industry and eliminating the ability of states to protect themselves and their citizens from badly constructed oil pipelines. This tells you everything about their priorities: big bucks for billionaires and their planet-poisoning oil wells; retired people and disabled people can just die in the streets.

The GOP is going to try to distract us with hysteria about the southern border, abortion, and gun control. But this is their real agenda.
