MADISON - This week, President Donald Trump released his administration's 2019 budget request which calls for a dramatic, $554 billion ravaging of Medicare, a vital program that more than 1,000,000 Wisconsinite seniors count on for health care coverage.

The Trump Administration budget request also guts Medicaid -- a program that provides vital health care coverage for 1-in-3 kids in Wisconsin and 3-in-5 Wisconsin nursing home residents -- by $1.4 trillion.

Leah Vukmir and out-of-state billionaire puppet Kevin Nicholson have previously endorsed cuts to Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security, and now they're standing by Trump's plan to gut Wisconsinite seniors and future retirees' hard-earned benefits.

"It's no secret that Leah Vukmir and Kevin Nicholson are on board with right-wing corporate special interests' plans to gut Wisconsinites' earned benefits," said Brad Bainum, Democratic Party of Wisconsin spokesperson for the 2018 Senate race. "Of course Vukmir and Nicholson are standing with Trump as he attacks Wisconsin seniors and aims to slash Medicare by a whopping $554 billion."
