Senate Budget Will Harm Essential Programs
The budget resolution passed by the Senate paves the way for massive tax cuts for the wealthy that will increase inequality and build pressure to cut safety net programs.
To pay for these tax cuts, the Senate budget resolution assumes a reduction of trillions of dollars for critical programs, including SNAP, low-income tax credits, Medicaid, and programs that assist persons with disabilities.
The Senate Budget reduces taxes for the wealthy at the expense of programs for the poor.
