White House cites satire column to tout budget

White House cites satire column to tout budget

The plan, however, is just the first budget draft, and agencies are working with local legislators to protect their funding.

"President Trump and OBM Director Mick Mulvaney are showing the political will to take the axe to many bloated and unnecessary programs".

"We believe that this budget protects that core function of the State Department".

As for entitlements, Mulvaney said Mr. Trump's budget is consistent with his promise not to take away anyone's Social Security or Medicare - and drew attention to programs such as Social Security Disability Insurance as potential areas that could be cut.

"The first thing I saw was the big cut to the NIH, the National Institutes of Health". "So over the course of the next decade, we'll have to look at the mandatory spending side in order to figure out a way to make changes to the way we spend money".

He also said that Health cards should be started in Sindh and announced 500 million rupees for the welfare of the Hindu community. Prime Minister Nawaz is in Karachi on a two-day visit where he is expected to preside a high-level security meeting.

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.

"This budget proposal has nothing to do with draining the swamp and everything to do with hurting regular Americans", National Treasury Employees Union President Tony Reardon said in a statement.

The Corporation for Public Broadcasting would be eliminated as well, wiping out federal funding for public radio and television.

"Well, this year", Mulvaney answered.

The governor's dismay with some of Trump's spending plans were shared by Bay State Democrats. "With just 1 percent of our nation's budget, the global affairs budget has helped alleviate the suffering of millions".

Republicans Move Ahead on Obamacare Repeal Despite Weak Support
The letter was sent by Nevada's Sandoval, as well as Ohio's John Kasich, Michigan's Rick Snyder and Arkansas's Asa Hutchinson. Trump told reporters: "I want people to know ObamaCare is dead; it's a dead healthcare plan".

The blueprint next goes to Congress. We can only hope that the Republican lead House and Senate have a better plan.

"While almost every Republican claims to be a fiscal conservative, many of them defend subsidy programs important to their states or personal interests", observed Chris Edwards, editor of the Cato Institute's DownsizingGovernment.org, who tossed out rural business subsidies as an example.

Cohen writes: "Budgets tell us a great deal about a White House's fiscal priorities - and with Trump's budget, we are reminded again of the cruelty and mean-spiritedness of this administration". "They're more likely to graduate and to excel in the labor market".

"I thought it was sort of tongue in cheek", Mulvaney said. (The question showed that, in a sense, every Beltway homeowner has an interest in keeping the government big.) Clearly Mulvaney had heard the real estate question before.

Mulvaney was asked on CBS' "Face the Nation" how the president could propose cutting programs that affect regular voters while at the same time continuing to spend many of his weekends at Mar-a-Lago. "This reminds me of those movie trailers that manage to cite only a single word from a review ("Extreme" -LA Times) in such a way that you wonder how the word was used in context".
