Today’s Action: Stop Trump’s sabotage of food stamps, Medicaid, Head Start, and more

In the GOP’s continued war against the poor and working class, Trump has declared his next move: adjusting inflation rates to lower the poverty line, which is the baseline measurement for eligibility on social services like food stamps, Medicaid, Head Start, and more. This plan arrives simultaneously with the rollout of work requirements and budget cuts for those same lifesaving programs.

By lowering the poverty line, Trump would be able to kick millions of people off assistance programs with the stroke of a pen.

With the current poverty line set at $26,000 for a family of four, folks at that income level are barely making ends meet — at best. And in a country that happily spends $700 billion a year for our military budget, making a $26,000 annual income for four even tighter is gut-wrenchingly greedy.

Click here to leave a public comment for the Federal Register. Tell them that lowering the poverty line with what they call a “chained CPI” will result in millions of people losing desperately-needed benefits, and you do not approve of that or any other switch that hurts the poor and working class.

The “chained CPI” is Trump’s chosen mechanism to lower the poverty line. The idea is that as prices go up, consumers will simply find a cheaper alternative. It’s a flawed methodology… Or let’s just say it. It’s completely bananas.

But the real issue is that this type of measuring will immediately lower the poverty line, thereby bumping millions off of government support programs…and the number dropped will increase each year.

Trump’s proposed change is unacceptable, and may literally result in driving families out of their homes and to sickness or death with the loss of supplemented food and healthcare access.

Leave a public comment with the Federal Register by June 21. Let them know you do NOT approve of switching the poverty line inflation measurement to “chained CPI,” or any other switch that would result in millions of poor and working class losing their support benefits.
