Sen. Bernie Sanders (I-Vt.) on Tuesday introduced an amendment to require wider congressional approval for any cuts to government healthcare services and Social Security.Amendment 19 would require a three-fifths majority in the Senate to approve cuts to Medicare, Medicaid, or Social Security, a rule which Sanders says would help \u0022prevent the Senate from breaking [President-elect] Donald Trump\u0026#039;s promise that \u0026#039;there will be no cuts to Social Security, Medicare, and Medicaid.\u0026#039;\u0022For reference, the senator highlighted in a\u0026nbsp;Medium post Tuesday every time candidate Trump pledged to keep the programs intact.Sanders and healthcare advocates also launched a campaign to let Trump and the Republican party know that they will fight to keep Medicare, Medicaid, and the federal funding of Planned Parenthood alive.\u0022You aren\u0026#039;t going to take away our healthcare while you reward your billionaire friends,\u0022 the senator tweeted under the hashtag #OurFirstStand.Sanders, who made healthcare a central tenet of his 2016 presidential campaign, spent Tuesday tweeting a series of statements defending access to healthcare as a human right and decrying Republican greed.Take a stand Jan. 15 to save health care from Republican attempts to throw 30 million people off health insurance. https://t.co/oVtr4LCpHV— Bernie Sanders (@BernieSanders) January 10, 2017We must never forget.
