'Republicans care about poor people,' OMB Director Mulvaney says

'Republicans care about poor people,' OMB Director Mulvaney says

Administration officials defended these measures as a way to reduce government support they contend is keeping millions of Americans out of the work force and thus reducing economic growth.

The presidential budget now out cuts some of America's most important programs for disadvantaged families.

But then it also uses that very same $2 trillion to balance the budget.

Mulvaney said prior annual growth forecasts were "pessimistic".

"We are now bearing the cost [s] of excessive government commitments of previous years and this has forced us into making hard choices, but the remarkable thing about economic growth is it builds on itself", he said.

PA slams Netanyahu remarks on Jerusalem division
So Trump is, in those remarks , kind of putting Israeli-Palestinian peace kind of in the center of the agenda. Doug Lamborn (R-Colo.) at an Israel Allies Foundation congressional reception on Wednesday evening.

The White House has denied the president's budget proposal contains an "egregious" math error.

"If you borrow money, if you take money from people and have no intention and no plan of ever giving it back to them, that is not debt".

The Medicaid and CHIP Payment and Access Commission, a nonpartisan group (PDF) appointed by the United States comptroller general that gives advice to Congress, told lawmakers they should extend the budget for additional time.

Trump's budget cuts, which are only recommendations to Congress, would impose steep cuts to the education, health, agriculture, state, treasury and commerce departments, as well as the Environmental Protection Agency and other federal offices. -Mexican border wall. The president does make good on his promise to invest in infrastructure: $200 billion. "This budget makes it clear that we will reverse this larceny". And it's where those cuts are coming from that has some lawmakers anxious. The budget does not include cuts to Medicare nor does it request a reduction of core Social Security benefits.

House Speaker Paul Ryan stopped short of embracing the administration's budget projections. The fundamental choice remains: Either we tolerate huge deficits indefinitely or we decide which taxes to raise and which programs to cut. "We just don't increase it as fast as Congress wants to". "Supposedly you can put these different pieces of the puzzle together in a way that you don't touch entitlements". There have been years when I was here, 2010, 2011, I believe, where we could have taken discretionary spending to at or near zero, and we still would have had a deficit. But the Congressional Budget Office is projecting 1.9 percent growth, while the Fed projects 1.8 percent. "Three percent growth is not something we should talk about, but something that should drive everything". That advantage no longer exists. Both the House and Senate vote on budget proposals, and they often vote on several versions.

UK terror threat reduced from 'critical to severe'
A British official said that Manchester police will stop sharing bombing investigation information with USA amid fury over leaks. Grande, 23, said in a message on her Instagram account that a date for the concert had not yet been worked out.

Though Time writes that, "Over the years, it's been a reliable staple of Republican rhetoric about taxes that lowering the rates would lead to a boom in the economy that would offset the loss in revenue", economists say it's not that simple. That is, more people would be motivated to become rich if only being poor weren't so much fun. This generally requires workers to cultivate skills and graduate from college or for companies to deploy new technology that enhances what workers already do.

And so - voila! - the Trump administration assumes 3 percent growth for the next 10 years, a level not seen in decades.

The Idaho Center for Fiscal Policy is a nonpartisan, nonprofit group that analyzes state budget issues.

The problem is Trump's $2trn (£1.5trn) of tax cuts, which the administration lists as "revenue neutral" because they are cancelled out by additional tax raised due to the growth it is claimed they will generate. Not a top academic economist surveyed this month by the University of Chicago said such a feat was possible given today's economic and demographic circumstances.
