For the rich: massive tax cuts.
For the poor: Medicaid cuts.
For everyone else: more deficits.
The Trump budget contains $1.4 trillion in cuts that disproportionately target poor and vulnerable communities while providing generous tax breaks to the wealthy.
While the budget would spend $54 billion over the CBO baseline on the proposed border wall – the military and law enforcement – it also takes more than $800 billion out of future Medicaid spending within the upcoming decade.
Budget director Mick Mulvaney also revealed his prejudices against the disabled and poor by defending his budget’s cuts to Social Security Disability Insurance and food stamps on the grounds that ‘there are people who are getting SSDI who should not be getting it’ .
