*Wednesday, May 31*
*March to stop President Trump’s Death Budget**. *
*This time it’s a matter of life and death.*
*Planning Meeting** this Friday, May 19 at 2pm at Mass. Alliance of HUD
Tenants, 42 Seaverns Ave, just out of Jamaica Plain center*
The country has never seen anything like it. The president’s proposed
draconian budget cuts and tax breaks will impact every program that helps
each of us achieve a decent quality of life – and in many cases, to
maintain life itself.
*11:30am*: Assemble at Tip O’Neill Federal Building (10 Causeway St.,
*12 noon*: Rally at O’Neill Federal Building
*12:30pm*: March to JFK Federal Building
*1:00pm* Rally at JFK Federal Building
On May 23 the President will release his full budget plan to reportedly cut
another $800 billion in mandatory spending from food stamps, Medicaid,
housing, child nutrition, SSDI, and education over 10 years. These cuts
would be on top of the $54 billion the President intends to take out of
climate protection, housing, elderly programs, worker safety and other key
programs and move into the Pentagon budget – and the $880 billion cut to
Medicaid in the health care repeal bill already passed by the House of
Representatives! All to help pay for his proposed *$5 trillion in tax cuts*,
primarily for corporations and high rollers.
*There is an alternative! *
On May 31 we will not only march against the Death Budget. We will also
promote The Peoples Budget
Released on May 2 by the Congressional Progressive Congress, this
comprehensive and economically sound budget can serve as the *“Roadmap for
the Resistance”.* The Peoples Budget gives us a sound * alternative budget
to fight for* that moves our country away from the human disaster awaiting
us and toward prosperity and a society in which people matter. And it holds
the line on Pentagon spending while cutting the Pentagon’s dangerous
nuclear weapons build-up. The Peoples Budget will be voted on in June.
