Donald Trump releases his budget blueprint
Late last night or early this morning Donald Trump released his budget blueprint and on the surface it looks like a conservative wishlist and a liberal nightmare. In addition to a defense spending increase there are major cuts to several agencies while others are to be abolished, however there are some somewhat surprising increases which we will get to later in the post.
Here is more:
President Donald Trump unveiled his first budget blueprint on Thursday, and to offset increases in defense spending, the President is proposing $54 billion in cuts to large parts of the federal government and popular programs big and small.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.
