Did you vote for a trillion-dollar budget deficit, while the national debt is over 21 trillion now? Did you expect that your tax dollars would be given to abortion provider Planned Parenthood again?
There’s no cutting back of anything in this sorry excuse for a budget. This has a 10 percent INCREASE in size in every department. It looks like to get a 10% increase in military budget, Trump had to expand it to the whole government. There’s little there that represents fiscal sense, let alone fiscal conservatism. Dems get what they want, including a bailout to insurance companies for the failure of Obamacare to work. And, barring military readiness, R’s don’t.
If that’s how it’s going to be this year, it better not be the same story next year. The size and direction that the national debt is going, is just as much a “national security” factor as anything else that can affect the nation!
And for that real “deer in the headlights” look, ask your representative the effects to the national debt as interest rates rise back to “normal” market pressures, as opposed to FED’s manipulation.
