Trump-Holding Tax Scam Favors Drug Companies That Rip Off Seniors

Republicans Threaten Medicare Trust Fund Will Be Broke By 2026

Raleigh, NC Protect Our Care Campaign Director Brad Woodhouse released the following statement today about the new Medicare Trustees Report finding that the Trust Fund will run out of money in 2026:

“Today’s Medicare Trustees Report is a smoking gun. American seniors should be outraged that Republicans have harmed Medicare in order to pass a tax bill that gives huge breaks to the same prescription drug companies that are robbing older Americans blind. Today’s news proves that whether you’re old or young, rich or poor, the Trump Administration and Congressional Republicans have it out for your health care.”

Congressman George Holding continues to be oblivious to the needs of his constituents in the 2nd Congressional District, especially senior citizens. He voted with the GOP to repeal the Affordable Care Act. He voted for the #TrumpHoldingTaxScam that benefits millionaires, billionaires, and Big Pharma. Medicare recipients in NC’s Congressional District 2 are left behind while taxpayers provide free health care to Congressman Holding.
