A new Quinnipiac poll finds American voters oppose the spending cuts listed in President Trump’s proposed federal budget, including 70% to 25% against eliminating the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
A new Quinnipiac survey finds President Trump is losing support among Republicans, white voters and men, leaving him with a negative 37% to 56% job approval rating from American voters, his worst score ever. Said pollster Tim Malloy: “Most alarming for Trump, the demographic underpinnings of his support, Republicans, white voters, especially men and those without a college degree, are starting to have doubts.”
A new Urban Institute analysis finds that the typical family making less than $10,000 will lose $1,420 if the Republican health care plan passes, while the average family making $200,000 or more would gain $5,640. Vox: “It’s not surprising that cutting taxes on the rich while gutting health coverage for the poor and middle class has regressive consequences. But the numbers the Urban analysts arrive at are still shocking. People making more than $1 million a year would get an average tax cut of $51,410.”
I would say to my friends in the House of Representatives with whom I served: Do not walk the plank and vote for a bill that cannot pass the Senate, and then have to face the consequences of that vote.
