Big winners and big losers in Trump's budget

Big winners and big losers in Trump's budget

But Thomas Pyle, president of the American Energy Alliance, an advocacy group backed by billionaire brothers Charles and David Koch, said Trump's budget "offers a much-needed resetting of the relationship between the federal government, the states and the American people". The federal Housing & Urban Development Department, which largely helps the urban poor, would be cut by 13%.

The budget also proposes cuts in USA support for the World Bank and the United Nations, institutions that President Donald Trump's adviser Stephen Bannon has been critical of. This, conveniently, is also what the budget does. A graph that illustrates Trump's drastic proposed budget change to major federal agencies is here (Note: 16 out of 20 (80 percent) major federal agencies will see their budget cut).

For the Pell Grant, the federal government's main income-based college aid program, the proposal calls for "level funding".

"Over the years we've done Brownfield Programs", says Chuck Ennis, city engineer.

"Just because it's not here, doesn't mean we're dodging the issue", Mulvaney said.

Drugmakers, biotech companies and health insurance providers came under pressure Thursday in response to President Donald Trump's budget proposal, which would cut funding for health-related agencies. "It threatens the science that makes us strong, the diplomats that keep us safe, and the local investment on which our entire economy depends", Kennedy said in a statement.

Charley Hoffman, Kevin Kisner lead by three at Bay Hill
First-round leader Fred Couples had a 70 to fall into a tie for third with Kevin Sutherland (65) at 11 under. A fourth bogey at the par-4 15th hole dropped him four out of the lead. "I'm not too scared", Kisner said.

Trump released a $1.1 trillion spending blueprint for the country on Thursday that increases federal spending on defense, border security, law enforcement and school choice initiatives, but makes deep cuts to research spending, environmental protection and affordable housing. "I don't think so". "So I think it's a very counterproductive budget".

Some are already saying that the president's proposal has little chance of becoming reality, and may actually be dead on arrival in Capitol Hill.

"We expect Democrats in Congress to oppose these cuts along with many big-spending Republicans", Mr. Cuccinelli added. "The president wrote this budget without consideration for those things - without being beholden to anybody except the people, and that's who this budget is written for".

The MTP host pressed Mulvaney on the fact that the budget would be one that he wouldn't have voted for when he was in Congress, considering that he has described himself as a "deficit hawk". But the federal program that funds the work would be severely threatened under President Trump's budget plan.

The White House has laid out President Trump's plan to create 25 million new American jobs in the next decade.

Numerous programs Trump wants to slash or eliminate have support in Congress.

The budget blueprint completely eliminates one billion dollars in funding for arts and culture programs.

DAN PRUETT: I can't understand why something like that would be cut.

"I thought it was sort of tongue in cheek", Mulvaney said.

And it's going to hit us locally in our day to day doings. And it's certainly hard to disagree that defense should take priority.
