Trump’s budget is not the dire killing kids and Grandma


So much all of this gloom and doom about the 2018 Budget proposal by Trump. Today a guest post by Mustang with his interesting analysis.

America’s Economic Security

Diaper-headed persons aren’t the only folk capable of throwing bombs.  OMB Director Mick Mulvaney threw one recently and by every measure, the bomb was one of those multiple warhead configurations.  At this early stage, I think it would be fair to say that Trump’s plan for achieving America’s economic security has the leftists quaking in their designer shoes. Here first the Mulvaney presser; it gets interesting around the 9:30 mark.  It is worthy of a few minutes of your time.  For more background on Mulvaney, click here.

The Trump bill calls for a spending cut of $1.74 trillion.  No surprise, the usual suspects are running around proclaiming the bill is dead on arrival.  How’s this for optimism?

In criticizing the previous administration, Mulvaney stated, “Look, if you borrow money … if I take money from you and have no intention of giving it back, that’s not borrowing; it’s theft.”  Rather, Mulvaney stated that he’s offering the American people a 3% growth rate, and a balanced budget in ten years … and he says the Trump administration can do this without touching Social Security and Medicare.

 In any case, the way I see it, Mulvaney’s approach seems to be a centrist position; helping people by weaning them off welfare assistance programs.  This is not an ultra-conservative notion, but it is Reaganesque.  I can support it.  Mulvaney went on to say, “We’re no longer measuring compassion by the number of programs, or the number of people on those programs, but by the number of people we get off of those programs.”

 So, the leftists are screaming bloody murder, but then so too are the ultra-conservatives.  One in particular is a fellow named Peter Schiff.  Peter is a broker, which means that no matter what happens to the economy, he stands to profit by it.  In my view, brokers are somewhat like bookies … they get paid even if you lose.  If you have a few more minutes, here is Peter (not a fan of Trump, or his budget) being interviewed about the Trump economic plan.  (Note: look at the small banner in the upper right side of the screen that reads “Revenge Economics.”  Is this clever, or what?)  What Schiff wants is to stop all entitlement programs, period.  For an expanded background on Schiff, click here.

 Personally, as someone who’s paid in to social service programs against my will for more than fifty years, I want every dime I can get from it.  Still, I would be interested in hearing what the reader’s think about the Trump bill.

    And as for the gloom and doom…the internet tends to show us his evil ways and stupidity. He CAN'T be too stupid and naive…he's cunny, clever, and rich. Oh my god…Melanie [or however her name is spelled] 'shunning' him in all his gestures, that's another hoot the media is pushing on us. I had the news!!!!!!!

    ps…Linda, above me also voiced some good points.

      The media tells us what they want us to know. Who ever imagined that the American people would become so gullible?

    Jaborwicky from the left or the right is still jaborwocky. There is no relief for we the over taxed without representation taxpayer from the drunken sailor spending of this government. Even so the long knives are out demanding more spending. There is no end in sight to the spending especially with the baseline budgeting mentioned by Mulvaney.

        I am with you Mustang. And let them eat cake with their damn Nato and see how long they last… we saved their sorry as* twice last century and they have the nerve to sneer at Trump when he told them to pay up? We have spilled our blood and treasure enough for the world.

    I think, quit putting every singe illegal alien on the system…put every single American on it—including Food Stamps. The problem isn’t the normal American—the problem is the illegal alien, why should they get benefits (look it up, they get more than the average person)? THEY ARE ILLEGAL!. No reason why food and medicine costs so much, no reason, no reason why we have starving Americans…if the government would just stop that, we wouldn’t be in the dire situation. Also, leave it up to the states, I guess DC has never heard of sovereignty.

    Here in NY, you have to be able bodied to go to work to get SNAP/Medicaid… (sorry, way to many “to’s”,lol)

      Exactly so, Linda … we have plenty of money for idiots who want to kill us, none for our own people. Doesn’t make any sense at all.
