    Trump's Budget
    Remember when he said he would eliminate the federal debt, or at least halve it, during his presidency? His new budget proposes to add another $3.4 trillion by 2024 to the debt on top of the $3 trillion Trump has already added, by piling on $1-trillion-a-year budget deficits during a peacetime expansion. Under Trump’s latest plans, the debt would keep mushrooming until at least 2035 — by his administration’s own rosy projections.

    Recall his repeated promises not to “touch” Social Security and Medicare? Even as the elderly population swells, his budget calls for removing half a trillion dollars of funding from the Medicare program over 10 years, including $135 billion from Medicaid.program over 10 years, including $135 billion from Medicare prescription drugs, and tens of billions from the Social Security program.

    He promised not to touch Medicaid, either. Now he wants to cut it by $920 billion.

    He was going to give Americans health care “much better” than Obamacare. But he has proposed no such thing and now his budget calls for cutting spending on the program by $844 billion.

    Fraud.

    Remember his vows that his tax cuts would grow the economy by 4 percent, 5 percent or even 6 percent? Last year it grew at 2.3 percent, and his new budget, even with the rosiest of assumptions, projects 2.8 percent for this year. Yet the budget would also devote another $1.4 trillion to extending those tax cuts, primarily for the rich.

    Isn't the biggest talent this dufus has is to talk what people whose votes he counts on want to hear while stabbing them in the back with his constant stream of lies? I doubt he even reads his own budgets just gives an aide an outline that he later fills in with wait for it...more lies! He may be a dufus and all, no doubt, but he knows full well he gets nothing, and probably wants nothing really except to do what he does best and that's lie, cheat, and steal, and find someone he can BULLY!

    Think about it. Since he got to the WH that's ALL he has done. If he wins re election that's all he will do.

    I had hoped we had elected the "anti-Obama", but rather sadly he is behaving just as Obama did in this regard. Very disappointing.

    He behaves like a lying, cheating, stealing, bullying dufus in most regards and that's even more dissapointing. No surprise there though! Shocking that people cheer him on for more of it.

    like the President's budget is ever passed . Please let's stop insulting each other by pretending that either party gives a rat's patoot about budget restraint;or saving the SS ponzi scheme and Medicare from their inevasible collapses . I knew before Trump ran that he was a big state pol with big ideas about how the Feds could spend our money . The good news is that he has more economic sense than any of the Dems who will likely oppose him in the coming fall campaign. But I have no illusions . There is no one running who is either one who believes in fiscal restraint ;or has a clue about what federalism or the framers intended .

    The bad news is that Trump is clueless about the economy. His "policies" are designed for one thing only - to garner votes so that he can continue to plunder the Treasury and join the billionaires club.

    His words and actions are self evident. He gets his or nobody gets nothing and he has out blustered everybody into a state of fear, and desperation. That's how he got where he is, exploiting fear and desperation. The good news is that may be what gets him out of office.

    Reducing rich guy taxes and not mine sure is, especially when you also cut things that benefit ME in the process. Bad enough rich guys control the money flow, and my wages, insurance and everything else I count on, but prices too? In addition my elected official works for them while I pay their salary and benefits. That's not okay either.

    Where's that raise I've been waiting decades on?

    My congressman is asking for money I don't have but the local rich guy does and the boss says he can't afford to give me a raise because he has to pay my elected official to get him MO'Money. Vicious cycle.

    Athos: Trump has been a BILLIONAIRE for a long time...he can't "join" a club of which he is already a member.

    Trump also DOES NOT need to show his tax returns: NONE OF OUR BUSINESS....and SCOTUS SAID SO!

    Trump had the GREATEST WEEK OF HIS PRESIDENCY LAST WEEK:
    1) Acquitted in Impeachment fiasco
    2) Approval Rating hit highest mark of his time in Office
    3) Threw three "bums" off their "spy" jobs, those being Sondland and the two Vindman backstabbers
    4) Found out and got rid of 72 "Deep State" Obama holdovers who were spying and leaking on the White House: BIG HIT!!!
    5) Gave the State Of The Union speech and provoked Nancy to show her true colors and throw an infantile fit for the American People to see

    Things ain't looking good for the home team but looking GREAT FOR TRUMP!

    Impeachment is over the repubs stopped it in it's tracks and money is power in politics. Rich guys fix everything with a few bucks, from parking tickets to elections to the bulge in their pockets. Impeachment doesn't explain the decades of bread going up and my wages didn't. Money in politics does though.
