    $840 Billion Medicare Cut

    So, they aren't even pretending anymore.

    Trump finally submitted a budget (a month late). Let's take a look, shall we?

    $8 billion for a wall Congress rejected.
    $840 billion in cuts to Medicare.
    Trillion dollar deficits for the next four years.

    You know what, Mr. President, keep your budget. We’ll take it from here.

    Cool. Let's see what Schiffty can do that won't result in "Trillion dollar deficits for the next four years".

    btw, raising taxes is a dead deal, if that's what he was thinking of.

    - At least the President turned a proposed budget to Congress.
    - Besides stop gap measures and Continuing Resolutions when was the last time Congress gave the President spending bills on time?
    - Congress creates the spending Bills for the President to sign. Now doesn't that tell you something about who is actually running up the debt?

    Failing the American people - ladies and gents, your Congress (with the House managed by the Dems.).

    I give up. Was it all the years the Republicans were in charge?

    seems safe to speculate that if the house hadn't flipped, these programs would have been significantly more at risk.

    I must have given over $100K to that fund over the past few decades or so. Seems a shame to have it stolen. But, I have no doubt that this is the GOP tax plan.

    Oh yeah... Cut Medicare. That's going to get the republicans a lot of votes.

    Go for it.

    It's probably back loaded--they'll protect their dying old white men, but screw anyone 50 or younger.

    i'm vested in a public pension that i took as part of my salary. it's fully funded, but this is a red state, so who knows what they'll do to it.

    They made Paul Ryan Speaker of the House. I don't think they've been pretending.

    (Correction: Trump was, on the campaign trail. So, touche.)
