$3.6 million dollars every time Trump goes to his private resort in Florida paid for by the American taxpayer, but apparently their is no money for food for the elderly, light and heating assistance for the poor or education for the masses via public broadcasting.
What kind of Christians do these acts of cruelty to their neighbors?
Trump’s budget would cut off funding entirely for several agencies, including arts, public broadcasting and development groups, and also proposes steep cuts to agencies like the State Department and Environmental Protection Agency.
Virtually every agency will see some sort of cut, with only Defense, Homeland Security and Veterans Affairs getting a boost.
Congress will have the final say, and lawmakers have already expressed opposition to many of the proposals.
Here’s a look at some of the major cuts in the President’s budget blueprint:
Health and Human Services, the department responsible for implementing Obamacare and its proposed repeal, would face a $12.6 billion cut — a 16.2% decrease
Environmental Protection Agency: $2.6 billion, or 31.4%
State Department: $11 billion, or 28.7%
Labor Department: $2.5 billion, or 20.7%
Agriculture Department: $5 billion, or 20.7%
US Army Corps of Engineers: $1 billion, a 16.3% cut
Cuts National Institutes of Health spending by $5.8 billion, a nearly 20% cut. Also overhauls NIH to focus on “highest priority” efforts and eliminates the Fogarty International Center.
Other double-digit cuts include Commerce at 15.7%; Education at 13.5%; Housing and Urban Development at 13.2%; Transportation at 12.7%, and Interior at 11.7%.
