White House Budget Plan Saves Taxpayers in a YUGE Way

President Trump’s business acumen is once again on display in D.C., even as he is working diplomatic deals in the Middle East on Tuesday.

The Trump administration has kept busy in the days since POTUS embarked on his first international jaunt since taking office in January, not only defending itself from ridiculous attacks orchestrated by the left and their media lapdogs, but also preparing a “taxpayer first” budget that could save Americans nearly $2 billion.

“The White House will release its ‘taxpayer-first budget’ on Tuesday, which includes $1.7 trillion in cuts for entitlement spending and a 30 percent reduction in the Environmental Protection Agency’s (EPA) budget.

“The Trump budget proposal will balance over the next ten years by cutting both mandatory and discretionary funding for agencies such as the EPA and State Department. The budget proposal assumes that the economy will grow at three percent compared to the 1.6 percent growth that America experienced in 2016. White House staffers explained that the proposal is a ‘post-policy’ budget, meaning that the budget assumes that Trump signed the health care overhaul known as the American Health Care Act (AHCA) and tax reform into law.

 “The budget proposal will make substantial cuts into four entitlement programs, SNAP (food stamps), CHIP (Children’s Health Insurance Program), and SSDI (Disability Insurance). The Trump budget assumes that the AHCA becomes law, which would roll back Medicaid expansion. White House staffers told Axios that the budget would cut entitlement costs through an ’emphasis on work requirements for able-bodied people.’”
Fiscal conservatives will likely applaud the budget, which is making cuts to programs long-deemed bloated or downright unnecessary.  Liberals, however, will be working overtime to spin the financial changes as an abandonment of the American people.  Cutting funding to entitlement programs is especially unnerving for the democrats, who rely on recipients of these often-abused assistance programs for consistent votes in local and national elections.
The bottom line, however, is the American taxpayer’s bottom line.  With nearly $2 billion in savings, the President has likely staved off another financial disaster in our great nation at least for the time being.
