Trump administration sending Congress $4.1 trillion budget

Trump administration sending Congress $4.1 trillion budget

President Donald Trump would dramatically reduce the USA government's role in society with $3.6 trillion in spending cuts over the next 10 years in a budget plan that shrinks the safety net for the poor, recent college graduates and farmers. "Compassion needs to be on both sides of that equation", he said. It cuts the Supplementary Nutrition Assistance Program - or food stamps - by more than $190 billion over ten years, starting with $4.6 billion in 2018.

"We are not kicking anyone off any program who really needs it", Melvaney responded. "It's especially cruel, quite frankly, to people who are up against it and need a hand up".

"I am confident that, with a renewed sense of urgency, leadership and fresh ideas, the Superfund program can reach its full potential of returning formerly contaminated sites to communities for their beneficial use", Pruitt said.

Trump's budget proposes a new entitlement: six paid weeks of leave for the mother or father of a newborn or newly adopted child. That's because the states are being asked to figure out how to fund the program, which will probably fall on employers to fund, as unemployment insurance does in most states. The bulk of that - $1.6 billion - would pay for a "new and replacement" border wall that Trump campaigned on.

"We are going to do more with less and make the government lean and accountable to the people".

"We need people to work", Mulvaney told reporters on Monday. "We need folks to work, we need people to go to work". The average food stamp benefit is $133.85 a month, or the equivalent of $1.50 a meal.

Edward Abrahams, president of the Personalized Medicine Coalition, which represents patients, insurers, healthcare providers and others, told FierceHealthcare he was anxious that broader NIH cuts would impact ongoing medical research.

Law enforcement and border security are also in line for increases. With a low labour force participation rate and sluggish productivity, many economists doubt whether the USA can indeed meet this three percent growth target.

"We have been attacked, stunningly, by some folks on the left and even in the mainstream who say that's an unreasonable assumption", Mulvaney complained. The poor and working poor pay little or nothing in federal income taxes - and they would get little or nothing. Some of these would receive funding in 2018 as part of a phase-out plan, The Hill reported.

That decrease includes a re-shaping of the way some countries receive military aid from the United States.

"The president's budget respects the American taxpayer", Pruitt said.

-Border security: The proposal includes $2.6 billion for border security technology, including money to design and build a wall along the southern border.

An additional $1.5 billion is earmarked for "expanded detention, transportation and removal of illegal immigrations".

Current Treasury Secretary Steven Mnuchin, in an interview at the Peterson Fiscal Summit, downplayed the issue, saying the president's budget is "a preliminary document that will be refined as we go through the process of working with Congress determining how money is spent and working with the House and Senate on taxes".

Trump's plan for the budget year beginning October 1 makes deep cuts in safety net programs, including Medicaid and the Children's Health Insurance Program.

Another senior Republican lawmaker, Fred Upton of MI, questioned inclusion of money for Trump's border wall, remarking: "I thought Mexico was going to pay for the wall, why is this in our budget?" The administration admits that the country has maintained an excellent aviation safety record while operating the world's most congested airspace. The rest of the government bears the bulk of the reductions.

The president promised not to make cuts to Medicaid on the campaign trail. The proposal also promises to lower corporate tax rate to 15 percent.

Health and Human Services: The Department of Health and Human Services, and the numerous research and disease prevention agencies under its purview will face dramatic budget cuts under the Trump plan. (Maybe they aren't "colluding" after all.) But Trump's budget is such that it leaves this White House's credibility on a par with (or perhaps below) that of a Russian propaganda outfit.
