President Trump’s 2020 budget proposal goes to Congress

Isn’t it refreshing to have a President present a real budget? Will the Democrats fight many aspects of his budget? You betcha.

Personally, I would like to see an examination of social programs, and even lower spending, but we can’t have everything.

Voice of America

President Donald Trump plans to seek another $8.6 billion for a border wall in his new budget to be released Monday, White House officials say.

This new request would be on top of the nearly $7 billion Trump has ordered to be used to build a wall under his state of emergency declaration.

The budget also calls for a big boost for the Pentagon and a 5 percent cut in nonmilitary programs.

Trump’s third budget proposal during his presidency, for the year starting in October, is expected to draw wide opposition from Democratic lawmakers and some Republicans, setting off months of debate just weeks after a record 35-day government shutdown over government spending in the current year was ended.

“It will be a tough budget,” White House economic adviser Larry Kudlow told Fox Television Sunday. “We’re going to do our own (spending) caps this year and I think it’s long overdue. … Some of these recent budget deals have not been favorable towards spending. So, I think it’s exactly the right prescription.”

Chuck and Nancy are already threatening the President’s budget before it is presented:

…in a joint statement Sunday they hoped the president had “learned his lesson” from the shutdown, caused partly by Congress’ refusal in December to pay $5 billion toward Trump’s border wall.

    Chuck and Nancy already have another shutdown planned.
    Dr John Lott, president of the Crime Prevention Research Center, outlined the plan to the DCNF at CPAC 2019.
    Nancy’s House recently passed another gun background check bill, which mandates background checks on everyone wishing to purchase a weapon including your dead grandmother, which requires fees beyond the ability of anyone except the very rich to pay, making it impossible to purchase a weapon.
    Nancy’s Gun Bill will be incorporated into the next House Budget Bill, which allows no filibuster in the Senate, and would require Pres Trump to accept the Budget Bill and the new background checks and fees, or veto it and set up another shutdown.

    These people must live miserable lives. Can you imagine having no other purpose in life than to hurt other people? Sad.
    It is nice, though, to have a President who finally takes this budget thing and the Presidency seriously, and actually performs the duties required of the office. Does not hurt to also have the same Pres enjoy playing with and beating the Swamp Creatures at their own game.
