Trump's $1.1tr budget seeks to boost military

"We can ask them to pay for defense, and we will, but we can't ask them to continue to pay for the Corporation for Public Broadcasting". To hike the Pentagon budget by $54 billion, he said, the president chose to make corresponding $54 billion cuts elsewhere.

Of particular interest to the affordable housing and community development industry is the 21 percent cut to USDA and the 13.2 percent cut to the HUD budget.

"Not only will the staff be a shadow of its former self, the inspectors, lawyers and criminal agents who would be left would be unable to do their jobs, because these cuts would zero out the already small amount of funds used to do inspections, monitor pollution and file cases", she said.

It could come from cuts, from your great lake to your furnace room. This cut eliminates contributions to worldwide climate change programs, along with funding for advanced energy and renewable power research. Of course, much like lunch programs, Meal on Wheels has been found to keep participants well-fed and healthier.

"I am disappointed that numerous reductions and eliminations proposed in the president's skinny budget are draconian, careless and counterproductive", said Rep. Hal Rogers (R-Ky.), former chairman of the House Appropriations Committee.

According to the American Psychological Association, hungry children are " significantly more likely to receive special education services, to have repeated a grade in school and to have received mental health counseling than at-risk-for-hunger or not-hungry children". We're not spending money on that anymore.

"If he said it on the campaign, it's in the budget", said Mick Mulvaney, a former Republican congressman from SC who is now director of the Office of Management and Budget.

Robredo camp calls impeachment threat 'irresponsible'
Earl Blumenauer, member of the US Congress from OR , who that, "What's been happening in the Philippines is horrifying". The Palace said an impeachment complaint against Robredo was within the purview of the speaker.

"It is a sad day when a group of millionaires and billionaires in Washington can decide what's best for America's health and environment", said John O'Grady, head of the union that represents EPA employees.

Many on the left were predictably outraged over Mulvaney's words, and expressed their dismay on Twitter. "We're $20 trillion in debt. We're not spending money on that anymore", Mulvaney said during a press briefing Thursday.

So they may not have time to actually read everything that comes across their desks before the next tweet or blog post.

The letter adds that, "it is critically important that you not make commitments about specific programs if they are not expressly mentioned in the Budget Blueprint". It is a very conservative budget, rather than populist budget.

That's the same argument anti-poverty groups will take to Capitol Hill.

The proposals must still be agreed by Congress, which is controlled by Mr Trump's Republican party, although he has faced opposition from within its ranks to his more outlandish statements and policies.
