The New York Times - Trump Budget to Request $8.6 Billion in Additional Border Wall Funding

 

March 10, 2019  (extracts)

 


WASHINGTON — President Trump will ask Congress on Monday for $8.6 billion in additional funding to build a wall along the United States border with Mexico ...

 

The request, which will come as part of Mr. Trump’s fiscal 2020 budget proposal, is certain to reignite a conflict with Democrats that led to a record-long government shutdown this year. ...

 

The new budget request is intended to allow for the completion of 700 miles of barrier, which is the total that Mr. Trump intends to build, mostly new but some refurbished. ...

 

Mr. Trump’s budget is almost certainly dead on arrival in Congress, where Democrats now control the House. ...

mind you the republicans denied the same request when they were in charge, the only person who wants the wall is Trump.





Common sense is not as common as you think.

Trump cheered Patriots to Super Bowl victory with founder of spa where Kraft was busted.

 

And she has ties to the Chinese government.

 

The swamp. It never goes away.

 

Trumpers are idiots. But we knew it.

Family separations not only continue, but they take even newborns. Interestingly some of these people are released to the United States so there should be no reason to separate.

The Washington Post - Trump proposes $4.7 trillion budget with domestic cuts, $8.6 billion in new funding for border wall

 

March 11 at 1:00 PM

 


President Trump proposed a $4.7 trillion budget plan Monday that stands as a sharp challenge to Congress and the Democrats trying to unseat him, the first act in a multi-front struggle over the role of government that threatens to consume Washington for the next 18 months.

 

The budget proposal dramatically raises the possibility of another government shutdown in October, with the inclusion of an additional $8.6 billion to build sections of a wall along the U. S.-Mexico border.

 

Trump’s ask for yet more wall money - beyond the spending he is already seeking under a “national emergency” declaration at the border - infuriated Democrats.

 

The budget also calls for a significant increase in military spending, causing problems with some Republicans who are uneasy about how it is allocated.

 

If lawmakers and Trump don’t reach a spending agreement by the end of September, many government operations will grind to a halt.

 

Trump’s “Budget for a Better America” also includes dozens of spending cuts and policy overhauls that frame the early stages of the debate for the 2020 election.

 

For example, Trump calls for a series of changes that would reduce total spending on the program by roughly $845 billion over 10 years for Medicare, the popular health care program for the elderly that in the past he had largely said he would protect.

 

His budget would also propose a major overhaul of Medicaid, the health care program for low-income Americans run jointly with states, by turning more power over to states.

 

This would cut spending by $241 billion over 10 years.

 

Other agencies, particularly the Environmental Protection Agency, State Department, Transportation Department, Education Department and Interior Department, would see their budgets severely reduced. ...

That seems fair. More wall money, plus more military money to divert to the wall, and cut health by 1 Trillion over 10 years.

 

The sad thing is all this does in cause news articles and seemingly little else over there

Trump is trying to reduce MediCare.

He promised not to, to appease the elderly.

The same segment who always vote in every election, unlike the young.

He may have kicked the wrong hornet's nest
