MAGA Republicans take veterans’ benefits hostage

MAGA Republicans take veteran’s benefits hostage to fund tax cuts for wealthy GOP donors.

So many House Republicans that claim to look out for veterans lined up to pass a default bill loaded with extreme cuts that will reduce veterans’ quality of care and leave many food insecure. The MAGA House Majority offers Americans nothing but a lose-lose proposition: extreme cuts that especially hurt veterans and seniors — or a default crisis that will wreck the economy and hurt these communities in other ways. – Accountable

The MAGA Majority should stop playing dangerous political games with their constituents’ lives. The sooner the Republican House responsibly passes a clean bill allowing the nation to pay its bills without cruel cuts, the less harm will be inflicted on Americans of all walks of life.”

Check this map for who they are and how to contact MAGA Republicans threatening veteran’s benefits.

MAGA created crisis

“With the U.S. Treasury expected to run out of money as early as June 1st, Congress has a responsibility to allow the nation to pay its bills. If Congress does not act and allows a default, the economic consequences would be swift and severe – from plummeting markets, frozen credit, lost jobs and a likely recession, disruptions to critical benefits like Social Security, and soaring interest rates on everything from car loans to mortgages.

Yet House Republicans are holding the economy hostage by passing a bill loaded with unpopular and extreme ransom demands that promise pain for millions of average Americans including veterans, seniors, students, children, workers, and the food insecure. They voted to ship 100,000 high-paying manufacturing jobs overseas while going out of their way to protect wealthy tax cheats and debt-ballooning tax breaks for billionaires and profiteering corporations. The most responsible way forward is to pass a clean bill allowing the nation to meet its prior debt obligation.” – Accountable

Accountable

Americans deserve to know the facts about the corporations and individuals that threaten progressive values and policies. Corporations and special interests have too much power and the American people have too little. They have manipulated our political systems for their own gain. By exposing these political practices, Accountable.US helps to ensure Americans have the power to create an economy that works for everyone, a democracy that functions, and a sustainable environment for future generations.
