Senate Democrats: Working families would be hurt by 2020 budget proposal

Senate Democrats: Working families would be hurt by 2020 budget proposal

While simultaneously slashing so many other things, increasing Pentagon spending doesn't make sense at a time when the Pentagon's budget is already over-bloated and mismanaged.

While announcing his presidential bid in June 2015, Trump said he would "save Medicare, Medicaid and Social Security without cuts". "This includes cuts to mandatory spending", Russell T. Vought said.

Trump's 10-year budget unveiled Monday calls for more than $845 billion in reductions for Medicare, aiming to cut "waste, fraud and abuse" in the federal program that gives insurance to older Americans.

The reductions are baked-in expectations of Medicare-payment savings based on reduced payments to hospitals and in expected reductions for the price of prescription drugs.

THE BEST that can be said for President Trump's $4.75 trillion budget plan for fiscal 2020 is that it has no chance of becoming law.

"These are programs that will continue to increase every year".

The budget makes no progress on reducing the federal deficit, which ran to $900bn in 2019, or national debt, now at $22trn. It adds work requirements - hard to administer and sometimes counterproductive - to key safety-net programs such as Medicaid, housing assistance and food stamps.

Trump acknowledged last month he has put aside his pledge to eliminate the national debt. "They are extreme to a level that is malicious, a level that is meant to do harm", said House Budget Committee Chairman John Yarmuth at a hearing on the budget plan.

"We've got to make some tough choices and these tough choices are going to step on some toes".

The Democrats also denounced Trump's proposed cutbacks in education, community development, student loans and free school meals for low-income students. The latest Trump budget essentially repeats his earlier proposal to do away with the Affordable Care Act and cap Medicaid spending.

"We're clearly heading in an ominous direction", said Sen.

"It is not that Americans are taxed too little, it is that Washington spends too much", White House Office of Management and Budget acting director Russ Vought said in an opinion piece published today. "The president seeks to slash domestic spending in order to reduce the budget deficit generated by his tax cut", said Darrell West, a senior fellow at the Brookings Institution. He called the proposal "malicious".

"Overall, this is a really fiscally irresponsible budget that will take us backwards", she went on. About $718 billion of that would go to the Defense Department.

House Speaker Nancy Pelosi (D-Calif.) and Senate Minority Leader Charles Schumer (D-N.Y.) made it clear that they would not approve the wall money. "This budget will balance in 15 years".

According to critics, the White House's budget proposal sets high expectations for economic growth.

These reductions are not that cut and simple, but it boils down to Trump once again breaking promises, which will have a devastating impact on the quality of life in the nation, particularly for those who depend on a strong social safety net. "But at the same time, we're also going to say that we have many, many programs that are wasteful and inefficient that we can no longer afford".
