Trump's Budget. Good Stuff!!

There's a glimmer of hope here.

Therefore, the Democrats will rip this up while their heads explode.  They will be joined by a number of nominally-Republican Big Spenders/Chamber of Commerce apparatchiks. 

The White House has unveiled a $4.8 trillion budget proposal for 2021. The proposal includes $590 billion in non-defense spending and $740.5 billion in defense spending. It also lays out a plan to eliminate the federal budget deficit over the next 15 years.

The White House wants to cut funding next year at the Commerce Department, the Environmental Protection Agency, the Department of Health & Human Services, the Education Department, the USDA, the State Department and the Labor Department.

The proposal also includes several ways to reduce the costs of Medicaid and Medicare, including work requirements. The White House left a blank for a prescription drug pricing plan, which signals an openness to work with Congress....

Not likely that ALL of this will be done, but knowing Trump, SOME will get done no matter what Nancy the Ripper does.

ADDED:  More on the budget here, along with a message to Republicans.
