Trump to Propose Big Cuts to Safety-net in New Budget, Slashing Medicaid and Opening Door to Other Limits

Damian Paletta – The Washington Post:

President Trump’s first major budget proposal on Tuesday will include massive cuts to Medicaid and call for changes to anti-poverty programs that would give states new power to limit a range of benefits, people familiar with the planning said, despite growing unease in Congress about cutting the safety net.

I sure hope all those out-of-work folks who voted for Mr. Trump like what he has in store for them. I sure hope so, but I don’t. Not one damned bit.

The “wealthiest nation on Earth,” as some like to say, and this is the best we can do to govern ourselves.
