Let the Budget Battle Begin

The president will reveal his budget today. Much of what he is proposing is already known. The democrat objections are pre-written and Kermit and Big Bird are ready to go on TV and whine about having their funding cut. From all quarters of the liberal world will come a hue and cry not heard by anybody who has not thrown boiling water on a cat or been in close proximity to a slaughterhouse. It is predictable as the sunrise.

Trump budget expected to seek historic contraction of federal workforce
President Trump’s budget proposal this week would shake the federal government to its core if enacted, culling back numerous programs and expediting a historic contraction of the federal workforce.
This would be the first time the government has executed cuts of this magnitude — and all at once — since the drawdown following World War II, economists and budget analysts said.


The America First budget: Trump wants $1.5 BILLION for the wall and cash for the military but will slash foreign aid and eliminate funding for PBS and NPR
Trump will release a budget blueprint today that makes cuts to discretionary spending to fund his border wall and the military build-up he’s been promising
State Department is cut deepest with a 28% reduction to its foreign aid division
The Environmental Protection Agency and the Housing and Urban Development Department are also expected to suffer
The Corporation for Public Broadcasting, which provides support to NPR and PBS, will see its funding phased out
Trump’s budget may not make it past the House and Senate – a top Republican has said it’s ‘dead on arrival’
Dramatic cuts make way room for $1.5B for his wall with Mexico in 2018 and $54 billion for defense without adding to the federal deficit


VICTIMS ON PARADE

Trump’s First Budget Promises To Beef Up National Security, Dramatically Cut Domestic Spending
If you find a $54 billion addition, you will find a $54 billion reduction,” he said. “We have simply not added to the deficit in order to accomplish these policies. You’ll see reductions in the State Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, and in many agencies, as he tries to shrink the role of the federal government.”

The way this works is Trump proposes his budget to actually bring some sanity to federal spending.This,of course,will never fly.Taxpayer giveaways are the mothers’ milk of politics,especially in the democrat party.There will be argument over cuts,the left will threaten to shut down the government and with the help of the media whores republicans will be blamed.It’s happened before and the GOP has always backed down.it will be interesting to see how this president handles it.

    New Medicaid chief says recipients should get jobs, pay premiums

    This is a nice thought,but it will never happen.The democrat voting base has spent decades having everything handed to them without any sacrifice.To ask them to actually DO anything to earn the life they have is unthinkable.They’d almost rather give up they big screen TVs,tattoos and they wigs.
    A particular concern among critics of such conservative directions is the possibility that Medicaid might require people to be employed or training for jobs to qualify for benefits — as the nation’s main welfare program has done for the past two decades. In approving a variety of Medicaid experiments under the ACA, the Obama administration consistently rejected requests from any state that wanted to compel its Medicaid beneficiaries to hold a job.

      Seems like a good idea to me. Maybe being forced into a job training program will be a good thing for some of them. Just like passing a drug test to qualify for welfare is a good thing. Democrats are such frickin’ hypocrites, the way they ban sugary drinks, then demand we give hand-outs to people who are using illegal drugs.

    Immigrants are going hungry so Trump won’t deport them

    In the two months since President Trump’s inauguration, food banks and hunger advocates around the country have noted a decline in the number of eligible immigrants applying for SNAP — and an uptick in immigrants seeking to withdraw from the program.
    Their fear, advocates say, is that participation could draw the eye of Immigration and Customs Enforcement or hurt their chances of attaining citizenship. Without federal nutrition benefits, many are resorting to food pantries and soup kitchens to feed themselves and their children.

    Dem Sen. Attends Cocktail Party for Trump Nominee He Opposed

    BEING A DEMOCRAT MEANS YOU CAN BE A HYPOCRITE.SAY,DO ANYTHING TO KEEP YOUR ASS IN D.C.
    A Democratic senator who couldn’t “in good conscience” vote for Commerce Secretary Wilbur Ross still attended a ritzy cocktail party welcoming him to the nation’s capital.
    In February, Manchin said he could not “in good conscience … give Wilbur Ross a promotion.” The senator credited Ross’s career as a billionaire investor—which earned him the nickname “King of Bankruptcy”—and his involvement in the West Virginia mining industry for his decision to oppose the appointment along with Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer.

    Here’s hoping the Dems get so shrieking panty bunchy about the budget that they forget to block confirmations. Trump needs his people doing their jobs.

    WaPo is worried that defunding Planned Parenthood will lead to more children being born. But I remember seeing a study showing the impact of limiting access to free abortion on conception and birth rates. The before and after had the same birth rates. Conceptions went down, showing that couples got a lot more careful when they knew they couldn’t get a free abortion.
