Trump budget would slash vital funding for arts, science

Funding would also be cut for worldwide climate change programs and climate change research and partnership programs.

Office of Budget and Management Director Mick Mulvaney said Sunday that President Donald Trump's budget is cutting costs in the administration - despite the millions of dollars being spent on security for the president's trips to his Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida.

It proposes the previously reported $54 billion increase in defense spending and corresponding cuts to non-defense spending at the State Department, the Department of Housing and Urban Development, the Environmental Protection Agency and the wholesale elimination of other federal programs. "They're more likely to graduate and to excel in the labor market".

Sen. John Hoeven, R-N.D., chairman of the Senate Agriculture Appropriations Subcommittee, said in a statement Trump's proposal to reduce federal agriculture programs by $4.7 billion "does not work" and can not be justified. This Office supports research for around 300 universities and 10 national labs.

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".

She told the Register she is anxious incidents like these will continue because of the political climate surrounding immigration. Saint Marc could not be reached for comment, so we don't know to what degree the incident has affected the restaurant's profits.

Though the governor has also expressed reservations over the House GOP's plan to replace the Affordable Care Act (ACA), Baker said most of the funding changes from ACA repeal would not hit MA until 2019 or 2020, while an on-time federal budget would kick in starting in October. To make a dent in the national debt, Trump would have to cut entitlement spending. And the federally funded Child and Adult Care Food Program, which feeds over 4 million children daily in child care centers, family care homes, and after-school programs, has provided kids better nutrition than they'd get elsewhere, which in turn is associated with better educational outcomes.

And the Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) would also receive just $69 billion under the President's budget proposal, a reduction of 17.9%. "If Trump refuses to be serious about protecting our health and climate, or our publicly owned lands, then Congress must act, do its job and reject this rigged budget".

"We have more mold issues, garbage issues, a water issue with lead, and it's really bad", she said.

It was, after all, titled "Trump's budget makes ideal sense and will fix America, and I will tell you why". It's one of the largest departments in the government and slashing the budget is the lowest funding for the agency in about 20 years. Alabama's government could not cope with the changes that would be wrought by the president's budget. It not only eliminates climate initiatives, but cuts air and water programs, too.
