Trump budget plan
« on: March 16, 2017, 08:07:31 PM »
Trump released his budget plan. What do you think of it? Is it a republican wet-dream? Is it the work of a crazy man? Is it the work of an idiot? Is it the beginning of a police state?

Overal plan is to cut the size of government while at the same time increasing military spending. That means lots of cuts to other things.

A short list:
Increase military spending to $650 billion
EPA 30% budget cut
State Dept 29% budget cut
National Institute of Health block grant $500 million to the states
National Endowment for the Arts dissolved
National Endowment for Humanities dissolved
Appalachian Regional Commision dissolved
Delta Regional Authority dissolved

wall funded by cuts to TSA and Coast Guard

Trump can propose whatever draconian budget he wants to. It's the congress who actually writes it. They can ignore any and every "proposal" he puts forth, if they choose. So it will be them who have to answer, for dismantling 70 years of progress. He's just a rubber stamp.

Also, you forgot to mention the 9 billion dollar cut to the Department of Education.

When the money runs out, the Americans will have to go back to the fields and live off of over-ripe vegetables and potatoes ... like the Russians did in 1991-92.

I would love to think you are right.  But I fear not.  Trump will be with us for at least 4 yrs.  That is how sick this country has become.
Is God willing to prevent evil, but not able?
Then he is not omnipotent,
Is he able but not willing?
Then whence cometh evil?
Is he neither able or willing?
Then why call him god?

didn't forget it. missed that one. I was listening to the radio at work. I didn't hear all the details of the budget.

You can add more details if you have them...

I don't want to sidetrack the thread, but Trump's proposed budget cuts, for the Department of Education, may become moot very soon:

Like I said, the Republican Congress is our real problem.

you know what happens when kids drink too much Kool-Aid. They get a little crazy until an adult steps in. But I think uncle Schumer is passed out on the back couch. Don't expect uncle Mitch to straighten anything out

Its not just the budget. The republitards that are in Congress right now heard that "everybody hates Obamacare. So let's make it worse"
