Even Some Republicans Balk at Trump’s Plan For Steep Budget Cuts

Kelsey Snell, Damian Paletta, and Mike DeBonis – The Washington Post:

President Trump’s proposal to cut federal spending by more than $3.6 trillion over the next decade — including deep reductions for programs that help the poor — faced harsh criticism in Congress on Tuesday, where even many Republicans said the White House had gone too far.

While some fiscally conservative lawmakers, particularly in the House, found a lot to praise in Trump’s plan to balance the budget within 10 years, most Republicans flatly rejected the White House proposal. The divide sets up a clash between House conservatives and a growing number of Senate Republicans who would rather work with Democrats on a spending deal than entertain Trump’s deep cuts.

Too far. Damned right.

Apparently most Republicans with a shred of decency were elected to the Senate.
