Republican-led Senate OKs $11.8 billion budget

Republican-led Senate OKs $11.8 billion budget

"It is a left-wing, corrupt, bureaucratic defender of big government".

So it is with Donald Trump's proposed $4.1 trillion budget for 2018, which was unveiled Tuesday.

In an interview, Shapiro and Kogan said that Trump's budget cuts were almost double those sought by Reagan in his first budget submission in 1981, when measured as a percentage of the overall economy.

As to allocating spending, the budget increases defense spending but in the wrong way.

"If the party believes that black people are going to continue to, on their own, organize and show up and vote for Democrats without serious acknowledgment of our electoral importance, the party will be in for a rude awakening", Sanders said. "That's a 38 percent nominal increase".

In fact, "dead on arrival" is the best news we've heard about the Trump budget, which may be the least conservative in decades.

"The 2017 House budget provides more income tax relief for North Carolina families, seeks a top-quality return on investment for their hard-earned dollars and saves for the future while making strategic investments in North Carolina's rapidly growing population", Moore said in a statement. He doesn't want the state to get into debt, so limiting spending and setting aside more funds in reserve are smart steps for him. "So the US$2 trillion is a double-counting error". In the not-too-distant future, without serious reforms, entitlement spending and payments on debt interest will take up every penny now collected from taxpayers. It's perhaps telling that Trump was traveling overseas when this budget was released.

Medicaid is an "open-ended" entitlement, which means it's formula-driven with essentially no limitations on spending.

The budget does maintain the same funding for historically black colleges and universities and minority-serving institutions from President Barack Obama's administration. They hold somber conferences in and out of town and launch a slew of lobbyists to Capitol Hill to argue against the reductions.

But, Edwin Park, vice president for health policy at the Center on Budget and Policy Priorities, said his group projects sizable cuts both from the Republican repeal and replace bill and the Trump budget, if the budget plan were to be approved by Congress.

It begins spending reform on entitlements by limiting the annual spending growth.

It reforms federal anti-poverty programs that have kept people dependent on government, with taxpayers footing the bills.

"This is a great budget".

The program as now instituted is the worst of both worlds - high cost and poor service.

"Although the budget would give states limited new flexibility to adjust their Medicaid programs, the measure overall reflects a significant cost shift away from federal funding to states", Moody's says. Patients "have less access to care, longer hospital stays, and higher mortality rates". I think we're getting to the point that we're starting to be able to do more. He went on to say the party would gather women "from across the country, including those that signed the letter, to discuss how we can better engaged the issues confronting Black women and partner with them to elect more leaders who share their values". In his opening statement at a press briefing on the Trump budget, Mulvaney stated, "Compassion needs to be on both sides of that equation".

This is the midst of an actually strong economy, near "full employment" and as we keep hearing, a record stock market.

The Trump budget proposal comes on the heels of an announcement earlier in the month of plans to eliminate the position of the Undersecretary of Rural Development within the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
