Democrats have labeled President Donald Trump’s fiscal year budget plan as “an attack on working-class families,” arguing that the $3 trillion in proposed cuts would hurt lower-income families while benefiting the wealthy.

The cuts detailed in the proposal released on Monday include “repealing and replacing” Obamacare, more than $200 billion in cuts to the Supplemental Nutrition Assistance Program, and $266 billion in cost reduction for Medicare.

“If Americans want a picture of who President Trump works for, the combination of the #GOPTaxScam & this #TrumpBudget make it crystal clear,” Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer (R-N.Y.) said in a tweet. “He’s for the rich & powerful at the expense of the middle class.”

Other Democrats, including House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Rep. Donald Payne Jr. (D-N.J.), also took to Twitter to express their concern over the president’s plan:

In addition to the cuts, Trump’s proposed budget plan allocates an investment of $18 billion to build a wall along the U.S.-Mexico border and funds a $1 trillion infrastructure program, $70.7 billion in funding for medical care for veterans, and $7 billion to combat opioid addiction.

@Bwalkchief(19 likes)Hey Kelsey, are you reporting or just pushing the lib agenda and talking points? Everything Trump has done and is initiating has helped lower income people more than any Dem has ever done. If you can't see that you should go back to LA.
Margaret Miller(18 likes)Well what he’s doing for America is cutting the welfare people out of getting freebies. You democrats want to give them free education, but not the American kids, you want to give them free food so they can eat steak and shrimp, but not the American people, you want to give them free health care, but not the American people, you give them free phones, but the Americans pay, in Pa they even give some free cars, but not the American people. Oh which American people, you got it the middle class, the tax payers. You give more to illegal immigrants than what me and my husband earn, and we worked all our lives. I worked until I was 72. Oh and guess what I pay Medicare, I pay our health supplements and our prescription plans, buy my own food, electric, water, sewer, etc. no freebies for us. So stick your idea about the middle class people where the sun doesn’t shine. You are so out of touch with the real America.
@rgcomega(16 likes)Are you jackass Dems sleep walking? Again/still with "attack on working class families!" You're definitely the Washington version of "I Robot" using Hillary's server that's stuck in an infinite loop. The sky is not falling, Granny isn't going over the cliff, and the only reason you're pissed is because Dems won't get to call the shots for deciding which of your "buddies" get to dip their hands in the vault. Incontrovertibly you are very short on brains, but maybe someone from the old Obama team can write you some new dogma. Whatever, please stop whining!
