Agnes Gyorgyey Summers came to the United States as a young girl from Hungary during the anti-Soviet uprising of 1956. She has spent most of her life as an American working to assure that people in need were cared for by some of the agencies whose budgets would suffer deep cuts in the proposed Trump budget. Yesterday, she posted this open letter to Trump voters. https://www.facebook.com/agnes.g.summers/posts/10211165728413362.
Remember when Donald Trump said he wasn’t going to take a salary? He just accepted his second paycheck.
Remember when he said Mexico was going to pay for the wall? He has asked Congress to appropriate the $25 billion of taxpayer money to cover costs.
Remember when he said he wasn’t going to go on vacation or play golf like Obama? 5 of the last 7 weekends he went on vacation and played golf, costing taxpayers $11.1 million each time.
Remember when he said he was going to use American steel to build these dangerous pipelines? Russian steel arrived last week for the Keystone Pipeline XL.
Remember when he said he wasn’t going to cut social security and Medicare? The Republican bill does just that.
Remember when he said that nobody on his campaign had any communications with the Russian government? Seven (7) of his people have now admitted they spoke and/or met with Russian officials…but only after they lied and got caught.
Remember when he said he was going to divest from his businesses? Changed his mind.
Remember when he said he was going to release his tax returns? Changed his mind.
Remember when he said he was going to drain the swamp of Washington insiders? His cabinet is filled with lobbyists, billionaires, as well as Big Oil and Wall Street executives, many from Goldman-Sachs. Yes, THAT Goldman-Sachs.
Remember when he said would defeat ISIS in 30 days? He doesn’t even have a plan.
Remember when he said that the Obamacare replacement would cover more people at lower cost? The GOP and 45 admit that the AHCA they are pushing will cover fewer people at a higher cost, but only after being called out by the CBO and the OMB.
If you voted for him, please hold him accountable to what he promised you – for all of our sakes.
